...And Other Things You Never Knew About Publish View

Publish View has a great deal of information about your site and how it is published. Unfortunately, in our rush to get a site online, many of us overlook Publish View details (or even wonder... "now why is that?" or "what does that mean?") that may prove to be useful to us.

Publish View looks similar to Microsoft Windows Explorer.There are 2 sides to the Publish view:

  • Contents of location -- on the left
  • Contents of directory -- on the right

Contents of Location

The Contents of Locaion side of the Publish View

The first icon you'll notice looks like stacked pancakes. This is a representation of a hard disk (or server). This shows how the site's directory structure will look in your root publishing location.

Down from there you'll also see folders. This is the directory structure method you are currently set to publish. From the Toolbar, selecting Publish > Arrange Files will allow you to change the contents of location directory structure to publish by directory (each page and related images or assets in a separate directory), by asset (all files broken down by asset type), or flat (no directory structure).

Locked Folders
Don't fiddle with Locked directories

Occasionally, esp. if you are using Javascript, components, or other special plug-ins, you'll also see a folder with a black lock on it. This is a folder that is created and locked by NOF and cannot be altered. In other words, don't mess with it!

Contents of Directory

The contents of Directory contains all the contents of the directory or location you have highlighted on the left, including any subdirectories, the type of item, NOF attributes, and the last time the item was published locally or remotely. You can adjust the sort of the listing by clicking in the column titles of this section.

NOF attributes are special designations for the file/folder. They are:

  • R - Read only
  • C - Customized. Means you have either moved or renamed the file or folder from WITHIN Publish View
  • D - Don't Publish

Last Publish Columns

The Last Publish columns tell you when you last published your site either locally (to your own computer or local server) or remotely (requiring an FTP connection to the internet).

Last Publish dates

You'll notice that some of the items are red, and some are black. Here's what the color means:

  • All HTML code, regardless of the name or it's extension, is red.
  • Any other item, file, or asset that has not been published or has been changed since your last publish is also red.
  • Anything else that has been published, is black (default)

The colors and publish dates are there to assist you, and are updated automatically by NOF. You cannot (and should not) attempt to change them manually.
