Publishing from Assets Toolbar

How to Publish from Assets Toolbar | Publish assets from the Assets toolbar.


The Assets Overview tab provides options to publish Assets Tree content. Publish options include:

  • This Asset: Publishes the selected asset.

    Note: This option displays if the displayed, selected item is an asset.

  • Assets Under Folder: Publishes the selected folder and its descendants (both folders and assets).

    Note: This option displays if the item is a folder.

  • Site: Publishes the site.

For a complete description of publishing types and where to execute them, see Publishing Types.

To publish an asset or folder from the Overview tab:

  1. Navigate to Assets.
  2. Select an asset in the Assets Tree.
  3. Click the Publish drop-down menu in the Overview tab's toolbar.
