    Default suggestions appreciated

    I have a 78-page site using NOF-7 - (I'm posting here because (a) the
    ver7 group gets little traffic, and part of my question involves ver. 12)

    The site is published by directory, as I have a couple different
    "member" sections that use passwords.

    Within the site I have a good number of PDF files.

    What I want to do is delete several (6-8) pages around the site, which
    will change the index etc.

    My inclination is to do this in NOF-7, as I do not have the time at the
    moment to get up-to-speed with version 12, although I do have it on my
    new computer (the site and NOF-7 are on my laptop). I do export the site
    to template every time I do an update (meaning once or twice a day).

    I also have an FTP program and can use it, although most times the
    NOF-FTP works fine.

    My hesitation in simply making the page cuts and republishing the entire
    site is the (a) time involved (although I am on hi-speed wi-fi), which
    (b) lends itself to errors republishing all those PDFs - which will NOT
    change during the sites restructuring -- the PDF files and their
    placement will remain the same.

    If you were doing this, how would you proceed? Is there a process you've
    found that leads to fewest errors or down-time?

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    Still publish the entire site BUT, in the Publish Site dialogue box, under 'Pages to publish'', use the tick box "Publish changed assets only".

    Thank you for the suggestion. I typically update my pages that way;
    leaving it unticked only when I want a new PDF or image to go up. But I
    hadn't thought of it being that simple for deleting pages. Won't hurt to
    give it a try, I guess. I do appreciate your reply.
