Re: [NH] re: UPDATE WEB SITE ISSUE
- Hang in there, friend.
These are the most common problems when using WS_FTP:
1.) Images must be transfered as binary. Did you have ASCII selected?
2.) If you had "Auto" selected, it is not always reliable with images, switch to binary explicitly for graphics.
3.) On some servers there is a delay of THIRTY MINUTES OR **MORE** before submitted changes are visible on the server. This delay
may be more during night-time server maintenance hours.
4.) On some servers there is an issue of case in file names. Lower case is always acceptable, as are traditional "8.3" filenames.
Did you have all files named in lower case if necessary? ...8.3?
5.) Some servers will not accept 4 character file extensions. Did you have the proper file extensions?
6.) Have you examined the WS_FTP log files? There may be valuable information there.
Practice some square breathing now. Then calmly reassess the situation and solve your problem. We all have been right where you are
and we all survived.
We will be here if you need more help.
Let us know what you discover.

than where you are looking. ;) Click on the arrow "dealy" to go
up one level, or click on the directories you are at when you
open Ws_Ftp and connect to your site to poke around and see where
they are. You can also study your HTML document to see where the
images are. That is why a link would be useful that was asked
for by Ed Brown.

WinZip. I think you will be very pleased with one click uploads
of the focused file in the background while you continue to work.
I normally click on the one clickers up to about 5-10 files at a
time: click, click tab, click upload, click tab, click upload,
etc... If there are more than that, I usually just do a regular
upload from Ws_Ftp. It supports 10 host servers and shareware
versions that0 upload paths as is, but certainly can be added to.
Examples, etc. are in the Library. Try:

- Hi JSB,
Example and correction follow...
>That is why a link would [could|may] be useful...For instance, if your .htm file has something like...
<a href="http://www.fookes.com/"><img src="..\image\ef.gif" width="50" height="72" border="0" alt="Click here to visit the Fookes Software Homepage..."></a>
...then you would know that the images are in a directory named
"image", and not in the same directory as the HTML file that is
loaded in the browser.

It supports 10 host servers and 20 upload paths as is, but
certainly can be added to.
(That is one of *my* problems using UAS when typing in a number I
forget at times to hit my ESC key. When I type a number the
associated line in the UAS popup gets added to what I am typing
instead of the actual number. <g>)
