Selecting new content to publish

Postby Cramptoni on Thu Jun 20, 2019 6:26 am

Hi all, my first post and thanks for all the useful help from all of you on other questions I've had. I cannot seem to fathom out this one though. I have published all my content successfully many times. However today I have create a new topic (N_API Menu) within the Content folder.
When I now try to either build or publish, it comes up with an error stating "Failed to parse master page file unable to find file" etc. Do I have to select this new topic (N_API menu) to tell Madcap to include it in the build/publish or it it something else i'm missing.
Please see attached screenshot.

This is typically because the master page applied in the topic properties does not exist, or is conditioned to not build in your specific target. My experience is that this usually happens if you are creating topics by copying from an existing topic or using an existing topic as the template. So, the first place I would look for troubleshooting is if the master page exists/is conditioned to build in your target.

Many thanks ChrisJ

Following your suggestion, I've looked at the master page and spotted the error in the topic properties. It was not conditioned to build the specific target (including the new topic I had created). It was due to copying an existing topic.

Many thanks
