Publishing bug...but with a solution
First off I want to say nice work FogCreek!
I was redoing my site with CD (starter) and ended up gumming things up a bit. I had posted my first go around and one of the articles had the filename FOG0010.HTML (shortened for this post). Later on down the road I scrapped my test site and decided to go live. I reposted and life was good.
After going through some of my logs I found a missing link referring to FOG0010.HTML from google. I didn't want to loose the google reference and decided to put in a message about a redirect. At the time I didn't notice that the files were on two different paths.
To add the redirect I added a new file in CD called FOG0010.HTML. DOH!! That filename was already being generated by CD. So I removed the file and republished and that's when the bug occured.
I received a "duplicate node" type of error when publishing. I began to freak out a little bit and decided to go grab lunch.
Before bugging somebody else about it I made a few attempts to fix the problem myself. I removed any duplicate entries in the MDB file but it problem was still there.
What I ended up doing to fix it was removing the FOG0010.HTML entries in the citydesk.xml file on the web server.
Just though I would share that.
