I have a fairly large project that I'm doing various updates to. Is there a way to publish just the areas that have been updated instead of the whole entire project? Currently, I select "generate primary layout" once I commit through SVN but this publishes the entire project. I just want to publish certain sections as they're being updated.
You can accomplish what you want in many ways. I cannot help but to notice you used the word "Publish". Are you using the built in Publishing feature to do this? If so, note that typically this operation only copies over the files that have been added or changed since the last time you published.
From what you stated, one may also infer that you wish to prepare certain content but prevent it from going out as you update. If that's what you are hoping to do, you would use Conditional Build Tags to accomplish that. Just create a tag and name it perhaps IP (for In Progress) and exclude anything tagged with IP during the generation of the output. Assuming everything has been correctly tagged and is working, nothinig tagged with IP should end up among the output files.
Hopefully this was helpful... Rick

I agree with Rick a Conditional build tag is the way to go.
Just remember that the condition is set in the negative.
That is the RH defined tags Print and Online mean NOT Print and NOT onliine respectively.
This was not clear to me when I started using them and I had the reverse my logic.
