How to Keep the Publisher Publishing

Have you found yourself stuck in a long line in the publishing queue? With more than 1,000 of us using Cascade, it’s bound to happen on occasion. But there are a few best practices we can all follow to avoid adding unnecessary wait time.

Best Practices
  • If you only edit an index page, publish just that index page.
  • If you update what displays in a menu, publish the folder up one level from the one you edited.
  • If you update a listing item (a directory page, news story, feature or announcement), you can save time by publishing just the following:
    • the page you edited
    • the index listing page on which it is displayed
    • any pages on which you include a Listbox that displays the item (if applicable)
Limit Publishing Your Root Folder

There will be times when it makes the most sense to publish your root folder — if you are making many edits across your site or making edits that affect your main menu. In these cases, we urge you to complete and preview your edits in Cascade and then publish your root folder ONLY ONCE when you are done. 

How to Check the Publish Queue for Progress

Not seeing your edits published on the live site? Check the queue. To see if your publish job is still in line, open the Cascade System Menu and select Publish Queue.
