Publish Pages and Folders

Shows you how to publish pages and folders singularly or in mass.

You can publish objects in Plone in a variety of ways.

You can publish the objects one at a time (which I recommend). This allows you to be methodical in what you reveal to the public. It forces you to examine the content and be really know the information your giving to the public is as accurate as possible. You can also publish content in batches. This allows you to quickly get your information published but it will also publish pages with mistakes, outdated information, and information you actually wanted to stay private. Only do this if your certain the information in a given folder is uptodate. 

Publish objects, one at a time

Once you have reviewed the content on a page and are ready to make it public.

  • Login
  • Make sure your on the page you want to publish
  • Click on the state at the top right side of the page. This will give you a drop down list. Select publish.

NOTE: if you want to also publish ALL items contained in the folder choose the "Include Contained Items" checkbox. This is very powerful and will publish EVERYTHING inside those folders. Make sure this is what you want to do.
