On the Udemy page where you build your course, I'm in the Curriculum section under "Create your content". I see that Section 1: Introduction was already added for me with the ability to add content. I attempted to add a second section and when I did so, I see, the words "Unpublished Section". What does this mean? And I don't see an option to add content to the section. How can I create a new section and add content?

Hey @RandyMinder, you should see a "Publish lecture" button somewhere in the course curriculum. You can find more info about adding content to a lecture in this support article. If you're still having trouble while publishing a section, feel free to reach out firstname.lastname@example.org with the course name and lecture number and they'll gladly troubleshoot further.
Hope this helps!

Hi Abbie - According to the documentation you referenced, the only time I will see a Publish button is if I've already submitted my course for review. However, I cannot submit for review because I'm still building it out. It seems odd I cannot publish my changes, so I can see how everything is going to look, untill I submit for review. Am I missing something?

I ran into the same problem just now: I could still add lectures, but no new sections, it would always show 'unpublished section'. I already set the price, so that wasn't it.
After some messing around I found a simple solution. It seems to be some bug. Here's how I solved it:
- I moved the 'unpublished section' up until a lecture of the previous section dropped inside
- Now the section is no longer showing unpublished and I can add new lectures
- I add a new lecture, the first one of that section
- Then I drag the lecture of the previous section back into that previous section

I tried moving my unpublished section up and down, but it still doesn't allow me to add lectures. Any advice?

HI @AlexGodinez778 You just need to hover your mouse and click the + icon that appears and you will need to add a lecture under this section. If this doesn't help please reach out to email@example.com.

I had the same problem until I noticed that the length of my training did not exceed 2 hrs. Which is the maximum course length for a free course....So I simply set a price to my training and all was fine. Hope this helps.

Thanks @UnitPeter688 - It was almost one year ago I asked this question and I figured it out since then. 🙂
