Is anybody else running into confusion over getting a site published with the new User Interface in Webflow’s Publishing?
In the setting’s it states, ‘Visit the admin console of your domain registrar (the website you bought your domain from) and create the DNS Records shown below. Note that it may take up to a few hours for the DNS changes to propagate.’ - and it lists the standard 2 A records, the CNAME record and a new TXT verification record.
Thanks Michael, that’s what I understand the situation to be as well.
But why does Webflow say on the page I linked to above, ’ 1. Remove any A records set on your root domain (i.e., A records with the hostname @ or yourdomain.com) if applicable’ - and at the same time in the actual Publishing settings tell us to add A records with ‘@’. See below. Hence my confusion.
Did you receive any notice from Webflow hat things were changing as far as Publishing settings go? I didn’t know anything about it until I went to publish a new site yesterday. Bit annoyed about the whole thing.
Yes it sure would be, but Webflow doesn’t follow industry standard practices.
Major changes drop without warning, entire sub-systems are taken offline with no notice, and nothing in Webflow Status. Even when the API was rate limited to ~5 requests per minute recently, no one was given heads up to prepare.
The latest major UX redesign came no opt-in preview, and no ability to use the legacy UX if you can’t cope with the eyestrain on the smaller fonts…
By those measures the TXT record addition was a tiny thing. Inconvenient, but it was likely a necessity for some aspect of the hosting service provisioning.
