CD is making a "Site Contents"??

I upgraded to .31 (SP2) and now my main index article is making a "Site contents" page and linkig to all pages!

If I remove my template, it does not do this. However it only does it to this ONE fihle - not other files that are hooked to it.

What the heck is going on?

Try renaming the Index to lower case index.

Ok? But why should that work?

I think he's implying that the server/computer doesn't recognize Index.htm the same way it recognizes index.htm & is returning the folder contents.

So it's not that CityDesk is creating this file, it's that you're just looking at the raw directory structure.

No, not at all. CD created the file. It was somehow taking my index article and when it put it on the site, it was putting some sort of map based on my CD contents.

I have one I sent via e-mail if somone wants to see it. This is what it was generating on the server:

<BASE HREF="http://www.atozedsoftware.com/IntraWeb/">
<h2>Complete Site Index</h2>The following is a complete list of all published files for this site.<br><br><A HREF="./Articles.html">Arti

Publishing to multiple audiences/languages/locations & you're looking at a CD made index of those sites?

I only have one language, one audience. Those are the default settings.

I saw a similar file last night, but I think it was created because I hit either Preview or Publish for a single article, without having published the whole site.

I've got a feeling I read a reference somewhere that if your site doesn't have an index.html in the root folder, CityDesk creates one for you. But that may have been in a bad dream after eating pizza too late at night. :-)

Darren's right; as we publish, if we never encounter index.html, we generate one.

Cool. I don't have to give up late-night pizza.

This also happens if there are syntax errors in the index.html that keep it from being created.
