Trouble exporting PDF finding aid on ArchivesSpace

I have been trying to export a PDF finding aid for one of our resources in ArchivesSpace and I get this error message: 


Generating PDF for The Don Doll, S.J. Photographic Collection -------------------------------------------------- Warning: this resource has not been published -------------------------------------------------- "fo:list-block" is missing child elements.

I think the relevant line from this message is " "fo:list-block" is missing child elements. Required content model: marker* (list-item)+ (See position 1614:56)" but I am not sure what exactly the error is or how to even go about fixing it. I have tried to find any reference to a position 1614:56. I have looked at the webpage code and I tried downloading an EAD and MARCXML but neither helped shed any light on the issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated!



  • Usually the position refers to the line in the EAD, maybe after parsing. In the past, most of my PDF download issues related to HTML code that wasn't done properly. Like title tags, emphasis tags, or something.
