CD 2 uploads all files even w/o changes
Is anyone else seeing this? Citydesk 2.0.19 seems to be uploading all files in my site every time I make a minor change to a single article and then publish. It should only upload one page but that doesn't appear to be the case at all.
If you have something like a site revision date / time on every page, that could cause every page to republish with every update.
I do have an updated date, but looking at a few pages on my site, it seems to show the correct date for when the article was last edited, so I don't know if that would be the cause.
Have you recently changed anything in your main menu? Maybe to show your newest article, because every page that contains your main menu would have to be published each time.
Don't know if this will help...I recently discovered that within an article clicking the Save and Publish button does just that: CD publishes just that single article.
If you're using two different computers, CityDesk will upload everything unless your last publish was from the same computer.
Actually, if you publish the same site from citydesk from two different machines that are in the same location (eg. 'c:\my site') then it won't republish the entire site, it's only if the location is different that things go awry.
Wouldn't that be only if the two different machines both were publishing the same cty file, like from a network connection?
You're right, John. I neglected to mention that you can put the .cty file in the same path on both machines to avoid this.
I'm running into the same "CD2 publishes everything" issue with a network drive. It's always the same drive letter, but the drive is actually a Samba directory share which gets connected only when need be.
