 My article was marked as published. Why don’t I see it on the website yet?

We spread out the publishing so that all articles are not published on the same day. We have a lot of interns writing articles for us. The system to publish articles is separate from the learning system. When we put it in the system to be published, we mark it as published in the learning system as well, even if it’s not scheduled to appear on the website for a few days. You may have to wait a few days or even a week to see your article on the website after it was marked as published.
