Long, un-modified mp3 files publish again and again

Post by CosmickGold » Mon Jul 10, 2017 2:51 pm

I have the "Publish Web Site" window set to
"Pages Currently Opened"
and
"Publish files of modified objects only".
Yet my mp3 files (belonging to players on the page) upload again every time, taking perhaps 10 minutes.

They have NOT been modified, so how can I stop them from re-uploading to the website?

The software does not keep track of changes in external files (only for internal files).
So all external files will be published "AS IS".
However you can activated 'do not publish assets' for each object to prevent this.

That did the trick, Pablo! Works perfectly now.

At first I couldn't find where to do it anywhere. Then I searched the Builder 12 help pdf for the word "assets" and found page 24 says, "Don't Publish Assets (context menu only)". I had not thought of looking in the "context menu". But there it was, and totally fixed the problem.

Also, your email yesterday telling me to use "show/hide" to deactivate layers, worked perfectly as well.

It's wonderful how you are so ready, willing, and available to help your "fans". :)
