    Publish Online File Lifespan

    radiochique

      Publish Online appears to be a very cool feature. Thinking long-term: Is it possible to archive the file? And, what is the life-span of each file?  Thoughts: Is this feature intended to be a long-term solution for publishers? Or, is it just for those who need a brief publishing option. Thanks! KG

          It's a feature in the process of development which is why it's listed as a technology preview.

           

          It's not at the point where any archiving capabilities or revision capabilities are built in. That would require an infrastructure that has not been built.

           

          I'd suggest Fixed Layout EPUB as a longer term format (if that's what you need) because it's following an industry standard, and the files exist independent of a particular vendor's (Adobe's) servers.

            Thanks, Steve. More of an exploratory question. If you need a vote - I'm in for archiving or an actual HTML extension for posting to an FTP site, or a cloud-based library. Keep up the good work. Good stuff. KG

              The FXL EPUB is just about identical in every way to the publish online document.

                For Bob, the challenge for "EPUB" is getting the audience to open it and use it on a daily basis. For a daily publication, it's not an easy sell. Selling an audience on opening a PDF or an HTML link is a lot easier than selling an EPUB; although cool tech for individual magazines, journals or books that are published monthly or one-time.  The Publish Online feature is fast and in the news business - that's important. For daily newspapers and newsletters, we are all trying to keep our audience engaged but still maintain a sense of "integrity of print." WSJ does a great job with their E-edition.

                  You asked if it was possible to archive it? FXL EPUB is the best way currently.
