Thanks for the commentary and suggestions folks.
I am still left grappling with an RW project that won’t upload. In my problem solving, I have, for a bunch of files, unchecked the “Show in navigation” check box in the inspector. Now, RW will attempt an upload but it does not come to completion. Instead. it freezes up after delivering a “Publishing complete” message. However, the panel also indicates the conflicting message that it is “Starting operation.”
When I check the supposedly uploaded site, the expected changes have not been made.
