Nearly every day, when I look in our CMS, there are some pages marked green. If I go to page history (and also select unpublished versions) and do a compare of the newest unpublished v ersion with the last published version, there is no difference marked.
So I publish these unpublished versions (which are identical since long time), the green marking goes away, until some next day in the near future.
Has anyone some idea, what to check for this behaviour?
I have the same problem - but it's worse than Walter describes...
Try this - republish all pages that have mysteriously become green links in the site tree. Then refresh your browser (or use a different browser) and OOPS! - they (or a slightly different set) are back to being green!
After trying many things over the last month, here's what I've noticed about repeatedly republishing green links.
Out of 120 pages in my site, mostly the same 10-20 pages need republishing (but not always the same set)
Recreating pages (via a new page and copying content) didn't help
The pageId doesn't seem to be a factor
The pages that need republishing generally have many links and pictures in them
This is all rather frustrating to my content editor (who keeps republishing unchanged pages) and is resulting in page histories filling up with unchanged versions... :-(
