Yes, it happened. Yesterday for a few hours we actually had to say no to new paper creation.

Due to a surge in demand, we had to ask users to “hold off” on creating papers so we could ensure the overall quality of service for all of our publishers. Consequently the updating of existing papers needed to be halted as well for a few hours.

By today all presses were again rolling, papers were updating and the service was fully functioning. We thank you for your patience and appreciated the support of all of our publishers, new and existing.

Good publishing and let the presses roll!

    Hi Vanessa,
    There can be a couple of reasons why papers do not update.

    Daily papers will automatically update when there is a subscriber base. As well, papers that are viewed daily update.

    If a paper goes longer than 48 hours without being viewed, it will be set to “manual update”. You will know this when you see a green button at the top of your paper.

    If a paper is not updating, here are a couple of things to check for:

    - has a Twitter user list changed? If so, a change under the paper’s settings is required as well.
    -were there tweets with urls passed the past 24 hours? If not, there will be no content to update.

    If all seems okay, then perhaps there was a technical issue during the publishing time.
    Come back to us and we will see what we can do!

    Our paper seems to be stuck on March 6. Where do you make the “changes” to the paper settings you talk about above?

    I’ve noticed that one paper hasn’t published since Feb 27, another since Mar 4, and a couple of others during the timeframe you mentioned.

    I just re-saved all my settings, and hope that solves the problem!

    Robin, Bernie – Paper.li automatically updates papers daily if there is at least one view. If after 48 hours a paper has not been viewed, they papers go to manual update.

    You will know that this has happened when you see a green Update button at the top of the page. Click it and you should be good to go!

    If you believe you have a differnt issue, drop us a line at info@smallrivers with the url of your Daily and we will take a look .

    Hi Philip,

    Papers automatically publish and users don’t have to do anything outside of selecting the type of paper they would like and possibly, if desired, adding queries or lists.

    The posts Publishing a paper.li and Advanced queries under Features on this blog. They are good references for getting started and then working with queries.

    If this doesn’t help you, drop us a line at info@smallrivers.com
