Hi Carsten,

Thanks for this.

I add a new file that is the target for the link. It is copied to its correct publication place. The exported html file contains a new description of the file link, but with no active link.

I force publishing using C-u prefix and the link is still not active.

I shut down emacs, re-start, force publishing, and the link is now active.

Hmm, strange that restarting Emacs was required.....

Ah, I see now. Please pull again. From now on, when forcing publishing with a prefix argument, the validation list will also be recreated.

Thanks Carsten,

This eliminates the need for a restart. It is still the case that the link is invalid on the first publication try. It is valid after force publishing, though.


The validation function can be supplied by a user - maybe you can come up with something that works correctly for your setup and can predict the existence of that file, ahead of time.

Hi THomas,

org-publish-validate-link validate links to files that show up in the list `org-publish-files-alist'. THis list contains all file names that are considered part of a project and should be published. It is updated each time you issue
a command to publish a project.

Are you sure that you are republishing the document that should contain the link? If that document has not changed, it will not republish it, so the ink will also not be fixed.

You can force republishing by calling your publish command with a C-u prefix. Have you tried that?

Aloha all,

org-publish-validate-link rejects a valid link to a file when the file is created during an editing session.

With ./test.org and ./support/test.pdf present at the start of a session, the first link in test.org (below) is validated. When ./support/test-copy.pdf is added during the session, the second link is not validated and only the description of the link is output to test.html.

----- test.org
* A test
- link to [[file:support/test.pdf][test.pdf]]
- link to [[file:support/test-copy.pdf][test-copy.pdf]]

If org-publish-validate-link is not used, then the link is placed correctly in the html output.

I have read the org-mode manual, briefly searched the list archive, and read the function's documentation string, but didn't find anything that might alert me to this behavior.

My expectation was that org-publish-validate-link would understand the org-mode publishing process and would validate links in the production environment that were correctly established in the publication location.

I'm using Org-mode version 6.34trans (release_6.34c.89.g0c39) on emacs 23.
