"The folder hierarchy does not allow this asset to be published"

When I tried to publish my index.html page I got this message: “An error occurred during publish: The folder hierarchy does not allow this asset to be published” What does that mean?

The main folder was not set to publish. While you are in the development process, we set your folder not to publish. That way, when we publish all of CAFLS,PSA, or Extension...your site does not get published also (insurance really).

in order to preview your new site in the development server, you will need to:

  1. Choose your root folder (the highest level you can see)
  2. Choose “edit” tab
  3. Select the box beside “Publish” where it says “include when publishing”
  4. Then “Submit”

If you are still developing that folder's contents, please set back to "no" once it is published. We may accidentally publish it to the production server if you do not.
