WiscWeb CMS - Publishing Menu Overview
Using the publishing process of your choice (SmartEdit or SmartTree) will lead you to the publishing menu. This document will go over the options you have when publishing.
The publishing menu appears and has the following options:
- Publish all following pages: This option will publish the page you have selected and all pages that follow it in the hierarchy. For example, if you publish the Home page, all pages submitted to workflow in the site will re-publish because the Home page is the top of the hierarchy.
- Publish all related pages: This option will publish the page you are on and all other pages that share content (related) with that page. For example, if you have updated a text area on the Home page that is also used on the Contact Us page, both of those pages will updated with the updated text area if you choose related pages. Note: In the example, if you did NOT check related pages, the text area would be different on the two pages until you published with related pages.
- Send email after publication to: This option will send you an email when the publish is finished. It is recommended you leave this checked. If any issues occur, you can forward the publishing report to the WiscWeb CMS team, and might help us resolve your issue more quickly.
- Project variants available for publication: Most projects have four options available, but only two should be used. HTML is your production site, and is checked by default. HTMLtestserver is your preview site (if you have one). Verify you are publishing to the correct target before you publish so that you don't publish test pages to production by mistake.
Choose the options you want for your publish.
