      When you use eMediaAdmin to create a webpage, it also updates a database containing recent headlines (with the URLs and short story descriptions). Plus, it recreates your front page (maybe /index.html) and the current section page (for example, if you are creating a page for your "Local Sports" category, then the table of contents for your "Local Sports" section will be updated with the new headline and link to the new webpage.) Also, eMediaAdmin will add a new entry to your archive page for the current month and year.

These options can be turned off; and then you can manually use the menu options (shown below) to reupdate your table of contents pages.
