    I am adding content to a page(not home page) on dev server and publishing it but cant see the published content instead it is messing up the home page of the website that is live. All the three environments dev, stag and production are on separate servers and databases. Did anybody face similar issue or anyone has any suggestions please advice.

     Thank you for contacting Sitefinity support. Please make sure that you have an unaltered connection string on your dev and live servers. You can check these under ~/App_Data/Sitefinity/Configuration/DataConfig.xml

    Using SQL Express you might see something like this:

        <add connectionString="Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True;AttachDBFilename=|DataDirectory|Sitefinity.mdf" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" dbType="MsSql" name="Sitefinity" />

    If you are using a SQL install database check the connection string and initial catalog. Please also check and confirm that there are no connection strings in your web.config that would be set to the wrong server. All the best,
