When I make changes to our home page, there is an option to save as draft. The previous information remains. I do not see anything that allows to publish the new information.

HELP!

Under Admin Functions > Preferences, in the Editor Save Options box, you can choose Enable Advanced Save Options, which then gives you three choices when you edit a page: Save and Leave This Page, Save and Continue Editing, and Preview in New Window or Tab. Is this what you're talking about in your post?

If so, after you click on Save and Continue Editing, if you wish to publish the new information, click on Save and Leave This Page.

Clara,
I THINK to see the changes, you have to activate the changes.
Simply 'saving' you won't be able to see the change.
I have run into a similar issue with a count down timer in announcements before.
You can always go back to the previous version of the page I believe.

1. turn OFF Save as a draft.
2. Either type of Save now changes (updates the page)
(Save and Leave or Save and Continue)
They BOTH update the page. The difference is that in one you stay in Edit mode and in the other other you close the Editor.

If you want to see what it looks like BEFORE Save - to see if it looks OK, click Preview. Preview does NOT save anything.

Sometimes a browser cache keeps the old page data active. Usually you can reload the page to get it to refresh. But sometimes it does not (drives me crazy). The only way to fix that is to clear the cache in browser settings.

Scripts are actually the worse in this regard.

Thank you, Scott! I needed to change the save options.
