Stackbit gives Jamstack users an easy way to publish either the whole site or just a single page at a time. It also gives users the flexibility to publish immediately or to schedule publishing changes days, or even weeks, in the future.

Overview

When you open the Stackbit Studio Publish menu you will be greeted with a few options

Granular publishing

Publish Entire Site

Every Stackbit site plan, including the free tier, gives users the ability to publish the entire site immediately. This will trigger a rebuild of the site and push all changes on all pages live to production. This is typical for Jamstack applications.

Please note, this means that potential changes you may not have intended to launch yet will be pushed live as well.

Publish Current Page

Stackbit sites with a Pro, Business, or Enterprise plan in place can choose to publish just the current page you are working on in the Studio. Choosing this option triggers a partial rebuild of the site and will not push any other staged changes outside of the specific page you are publishing.

Scheduled publishing

Publish Now

Choosing to publish now will immediately trigger a rebuild of the site, publishing any updates made in the Studio. This option is always available at all plan levels.

Publish Scheduled

For sites with a Pro, Business, or Enterprise plan in place, owners and publishers can choose to publish at a specific date and time in the future. Just select "Scheduled" and click on the calendar icon to select the date and use the scroll buttons to select the time you want to publish. Please note that the time shown in the menu is in your local time zone.

This feature will allow you to do things like schedule site changes being published to coincide with the timing of a marketing campaign or other promotion without needing to involve your developers or operations team to manually push a launch.
