You can find the Quick Publish option in the following three places:

  1. From the Strattic dropdown menu in the WordPress admin toolbar:

    From the admin toolbar in WordPress, you can select which Environment you wish to Publish to (Strattic Preview or Live Environment) and then click the Quick Publish option

2. From the side panel in the WordPress Block Editor:

3. From the Admin bar side menu: Strattic > Publish:

  • Select the Environment tab you wish to Publish to (Live Environment or Preview Environment)

  • Then click the blue “Publish to …” button under the Quick Publish heading.

Quick Publish will update the following content on your static site:

  • New or edited Posts (including Custom Post Types)

  • New or edited Pages

  • Related categories (because of a new post in that category)

  • Related tags (because of a new post with that tag)

  • Related taxonomies (because of a new post in that taxonomy)

  • Sitemap

  • Main RSS feed (/feed)

When not to use a quick publish?

Since only a few pages get published during a quick publish, you shouldn’t use it for the following scenarios:

  • Changes to the Navigation Menu

  • Changes to the Sidebar

  • Changes to the Footer

  • Switching themes

  • Changes to any site-wide elements

  • Adding a new plugin that affects every page of your site

  • After migrating a site

How does Quick Publish compare to other publishes?

There are three publishing options, Selective Publish, Quick Publish, and Full Publish. The table below shows what will be published when using each of these options.
