I recently updated my article at: ExpTreeLib Version 3 - Explorer-like Navigation and Operation for your Forms[^]
The major parts of the update were new versions of the article Source and Demo downloads.
I obviously did not understand how to upload new versions of these zips. I uploaded the new zips with new names (indicating the version differences). In my note to the editor, I pointed out that I had new versions of the zips, but that does not seem to enough.
The article text has changed, but the download links are still pointing to the old versions of the zips.
How can I fix this?
Thanks, that has accomplished almost all of what is needed.
The almost part is that the Fourth download link should be removed since it points to the older version of the Demo download.
The line/link to remove reads "Download demo Project - 81.5 KB".
I do have a question though.
If I want to update the download files, how do I do it correctly using the Wizard?
I rather suspect that my problem was caused by "Add Files" when my new files did not have the same name as the files they were to replace. Is this a correct suspicion?
I am inclined to think that there is some virtue in having different versions have a version marker in the name to distinguish them from the old, but if that causes problems, then I could (probably) live with it.
If you update them by the same name, the old files should be replaced after you hit "Publish." If you use a new file name, I would recommend deleting the existing files from the HTML (you can from the article too if you want) and upload the new files, hit the "Add selected zip files to article". If you didn't delete the files from the article you will have to remove the entries you don't want from the HTML. This little entry may help:
You won't be able to put a link in your YouTube video in an article yourself. But I'd be happy to review the article and the YouTube link if you email them to me. (I can put them YouTube videos into articles for you)
Place the keyword CodeProject within the <category> element that is the direct child of <channel>. This marks all items within the channel as consumable.
Place the CodeProject keyword within the <category> element that is the direct child of an <item>. This marks just the one item as consumable.
The article is quickly getting obsolete because the project kept on evolving, I'm keeping its content updated only in the "History" section, but basically I'm planning to rewrite it from scratch in order to reflect the project status. What would you recommend in this case? Do the rewrite in place, releasing an updated version of the same article, or writing a new one with a new title on the same topic (but with pretty different content)?
It says on my Technical Blog Feeds page that blogs are polled for new content every hour, yet it hasn't polled the one I posted three days ago (Friday 9 November), though it is tagged "CodeProject" as per instructions, and is on top of the feed[^].
The previous article, posted October 17th, also went unnoticed for many days. Neither then nor now did clicking on the the "Update now" graphic do anything.
Would be grateful to know if polling frequency has been turned way down, or if there is somethign I can do to speed things up.
I noticed A deeper look at the Intel IvyBridge Ultrabook is really just a few sentences and link to an off-site article. Looks like it got edited/approved by Smitha Vijayan. Does Code Project really allow "articles" that are just links to off-site articles? I know that blogs can be imported, but that's not the case here... it's really just a link to another article.
