Is-Published Still True After Unpublish

Should that field be updated to false after something is unpublished. I am trying to generate a site map based on only items that are published but we have some pages that people are working on that were published, then un-published but they are still marked as true in the is-published field. Is this an issue, am I doing something wrong? Deleting is not an option but I would really like to exclude them from the site map and don't want to have to manually set them to not index.

    Hi Kris,

    If I remember correctly, this field simply returns the value based on whether or not the Include when publishing option is checked for that particular asset.

    Oh, shoot. OK. So no way to know if a page actually exists on the web server?

    Kris, sadly no. I think I posted this to the old support forum a year or two ago. We would like to see that field accurately represent what its name implies because our news staff often publish their RSS feed accidentally revealing a story they haven't finished yet, which of course links to a broken URL because the page asset isn't published yet. D'oh!

    If I remember correctly, the built-in metadata field called start date, if set and in the future, prevents an asset from being rendered by an index block, however, it's not a very elegant workaround nor is it a guarantee that the asset is published to the server.

    That's correct. There isn't any sort of synchronization between Cascade and the web server once content is pushed to your Destination(s).

    Let me know if you have any further questions.
