Anyone else having trouble publishing chambers?
I've tried to publish a chamber several times this evening, and I keep getting an error message that says: "There was an error connecting to Steam. Please verify your connection and try again."

This is the first time I've had a problem, and it's very frustrating.

Restart the internet or just wait for the next day. That's what I do.

I'm having the same problem. Haven't found a solution yet. So far I've tried re-naming the test chamber and verifying the game cache, but neither was effective.

I tried rebooting my router -- no luck. The problem has persisted for more than 12 hours.

It finally worked when I got home tonight. I guess maybe the servers were just not responding?

Seems to be working now for me too. Strange.

I am now experiencing this issue. Restarting internet connection, computer, and router had no effect.

Changing servers also didn't resolve it. Very odd that all other aspects of the game function fine. Error has persisted for more than 24 hours. Resorting to opening a ticket on the issue

Usually when this happens to me, I press "publish" again, and about two seconds later it works.

It's happening to me now... Verifying the game cache didn't help...

I've had a couple of occasions where it was impossible to publish. It eventually worked so I assumed it was a problem on Valve's end. Frustrating, but it happens.
