    • Open Website URL: Check this box if you wish to launch the website when publishing completes. The site will open in the default web browser.
    • Publishing Mode: Specifies the current publishing mode. There are two modes available:
      • Differential (default): Only new or recently modified files are transferred to the web server. This is the faster way to update your site.
      • Complete: The entirety of the website's files are transferred to the web server.

  • SEO:
    • Automatic robots.txt File: Automatically generate the robots.txt file. If a customized text file exists, the file will then be appended (not overwritten). If automatic creation is turned off, the file will only contain the custom text. (And if no custom text exists, no file will be created).
    • Automatic Sitemap File: Automatically generate the sitemap file. If turned off, no sitemap file will be published.
    • Custom robots.txt File: Custom text to add to the robots.txt file published to the root of the web server. This text will be added to the top of the file.
