Worg doesn’t publish correctly - what to do?

What need to be taken care of?

Do we have to avoid certain constructs in the Org files to avoid the bug to come back?

Yes, when quoting examples (in org-issues.org or elsewhere), we need to be careful about not including syntactic elements at the wrong place.

Also, exporting Worg is made using the last Org release, not the latest Org version from git: so anything that is exportable with bleeding-edge Org is not always exportable with the Org version on the server.

How to track down a publishing problem?

From Bastien's email (on 2010-12-24 Fri):

Here is how I tracked down the problem if it helps :

  • I tried to export locally with latest Org (from git) to see where the export process stops: I found org-issues.org was the culprit
  • I took a quick look at org-issues.org be couldn’t spot the problem
  • I then tried to export by first commenting out the 1st-level trees in org-issues.org except one: reiterated this till I found the ill-formed tree.
  • Then focus on this tree to find the problem.

Quick long and a bit too manual - but effective.

Preventing publishing errors

Locally export any document you edit as HTML (C-c C-e h H) prior to committing it to Worg and ensure the export process doesn’t fail. This will be more reliable if you’re running the latest version of Org.

You may also want to check the formatting in a browser before committing your change (C-c C-e h o).

Troubleshooting publishing errors

If you notice Worg isn’t updating, visit http://orgmode.org/worg/publishing.txt and look for the export error near the bottom to find the file where publishing stopped. Locally update to the latest version of Org, open that file, and try reproducing the export error (C-c C-e h H). If it’s not obvious where the problem is, look at the most recent changes to the file in question:

cd Worg
git log -p org-quotes.org

Try reverting some of those changes and then re-test exporting (C-c C-e h H).
