I'm looking to upgrade our production environment to 8.1 initial, then 8.1 update 3. Unfortunately, one of the last steps is doing a full publish of the site. My problem is that our Content Authors have made a lot of changes that can't go live yet. Can i skip that step or will it break the site?
Perhaps I can just publish the system node or maybe the templates as well, but leave the content area the way it is and have the CA's publish when it's time. I asked support, but they said it was never tested that way and I should just follow the steps.
My problem is I can't upgrade if I have to publish the full site.
