    Using sidecar.xml to load results in the articles being loaded twice

    TonyRedhead Community Member

      As a follow on from my previous question "What determines the loading order or Multiple Articles" http://forums.adobe.com/thread/866779?tstart=0 I thought I'd try importing using sidecar.xml as per this help article http://help.adobe.com/en_US/digitalpubsuite/using/WS67cb9e293e2f1f6014465f4712f61e55c01-7f ff.html#WS9293e1fb3b977c5c-3a30084513028f6630b-8000

       

      The folder - file structure is the same with the inclusion of the sidecar.xml in the root.

       

           Cover - cover_v.indd

           Page1 - page1_v.indd

           Page2 - page2_v.indd

           Page3 - page3_v.indd  

           Page4 - page4_v.indd

           Page5 - page5_v.indd  

           Page6 - page6_v.indd

           Page7 - page7_v.indd

           sidecar.xml  

       

      Without changing the name of any of the folders or files within them I created an .xml file based on this help article http://help.adobe.com/en_US/digitalpubsuite/using/WS67cb9e293e2f1f60606c7754128c7a9c00e-7f ff.html#WS67cb9e293e2f1f60-60a064012f65fafa88-8000

       

      When I follow the instructions and use the import multiple articles and point to the root it load the files in the right order until it gets to the last article in the sidecar.xml and then it loads them all again but in the jumbled order from my "Multiple Articles" post. So I end up with 14 articles the first 7 in the right order the last screwed up.

       

      Does anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong?

       

      Here's part of the xml file, the entry info for page1 is just replicated and the names changed.

       

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>

       

      <sidecar>

       

          <entry>

       

              <folderName>Cover</folderName>

       

              <articleTitle>Cover</articleTitle>

       

              <byline>byline</byline>

       

              <author>author</author>

       

              <kicker>kicker</kicker>

       

              <description>description</description>

       

              <tags>tag1, tag2</tags>

       

              <isAd>false</isAd>

       

              <smoothScrolling>never</smoothScrolling>

       

              <isFlattenedStack>false</isFlattenedStack>

       

          </entry>

       

          <entry>

       

              <folderName>Page1</folderName>

       

              <articleTitle>title</articleTitle>

       

              <byline>byline</byline>

       

              <author>author</author>

       

              <kicker>kicker</kicker>

       

              <description>description</description>

       

              <tags>tag1, tag2</tags>

       

              <isAd>false</isAd>

       

              <smoothScrolling>never</smoothScrolling>

       

              <isFlattenedStack>false</isFlattenedStack>

       

          </entry>

       

      </sidecar>

       

      thanks,
