UPLOADING FILES TO YOUR ISP using Bulletproof ftp
SET-UP SITE MANAGEMENT
When your files are finished uploading, start your web browser to view the new web pages and new image files in the new pages. DON'T FORGET TO HIT THE F5 REFRESH BUTTON ON YOUR KEYBOARD to force the browser reload the web page from the www rather than looking at the old web page in your temporary internet folder cashed in your computer.
File management within BulletProof FTP is similar to Windows Desktop Explorer.
Sorting columns of files by DATE on both your computer and at your ISP is very useful in remembering which files you have been editing recently and are ready to replace outdated files at your ISP.
Use the right button to see useful commands such as Make directory (folder) or rename a folder.
From the top of screen drop down menu: OPTIONS > GENERAL > SOUND. Browse to a sound file such as C:\WINDOWS\MEDIA\Tada.wav for the transfer completion sound. This allows you audio notification when working on other things.
Ftp can is the best way to download an exact copy of a site (or part of a site).
Ftp is built into Frontpage (FILE > PUBLISH WEB) and many other programs. FrontPage Publish Web is suited to ISPs having FrontPage Server Extensions. It has a problem with trying to upload all files even if ticked not requested, meaning a question "do you want to replace the existing file" (at your ISP) This is repetitive and time consuming.
