Viewing Cannot publish Site Changes only

Cannot publish Site Changes only



User: David B. 2 months ago
Every time I select Publish Site Changes from the menu EverWeb always goes ahead and publishes the entire site again. I am only making small changes to a page or two and the pages are not in the navigation menu. I do not have a photo gallery either. Is there anything I can try to do to stop EverWeb from insisting on doing this?

Hi, David!

Most likely, the issue appears because you have a navigation menu on your website. Since the nav menu is placed on most, if not all the pages, when you add new pages and choose to include them in the navigation menu, the nav menu is updated on all those pages, so they are considered changed and thus get republished next time.

To circumvent this, when adding a new page and choosing a template, please deselect “Include page in navigation menu” option. That way you will be able to only publish the new page, but please note that it will not be included in the navigation menu. If you need it to be included, all the pages with the navigation menu will need to be republished.

You can also do it this way: don’t include new pages in the navigation menu to be able to publish faster while constructing the website, and once you’re done and ready with the whole site and have more time, include them all and republish.

I clearly stated that the pages that I am updating are NOT included in the navigation menu. There is no reason why my entire site should need to be updated in order to publish a page that is not in the navigation menu. There definitely seems to be a bug in the EverWeb application.

I've the same problems and discussed it with the support the first time in 2015. It's definitely a bug or a bad programming. But it seem that they don't wan't to find a solution to make it work faster with ftp. It's very frustrating...

It definitely should not be publishing the entire site each time.

When you add a page, do all the other pages turn red?

Where you publishing to?

You may be having a different issue. We use EverWeb all the time to publish changes and don't see these issues.

We will be improving uploading to FTP for the next release however.
