Can Someone Make A Plugin ??? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was just wondering if someone could make a plugin so that one could use a 3rd party FTP prog that would link into Expressions Web 4 ?, kinda like what they did with Frontpage 2003 (but you were forced to buy it)... I think it would help out alot of people

  • I'm curious about what you are asking for.  You can use a third party FTP now.  What would be the difference for a "plugin"?

  • well plugin or addon either or, so why create one ? so that expressions web can hold all the login info but you don't have to go through a long long wait when uploading a HUGE site.

  • EW already does that. Just set it up all the login info in Publishing Settings... in the Site menu.

  • But that does not fix the long wait while EW sorts out potential conflicts (7 minutes on my site when publishing ALL pages. - FileZilla: 0 minutes). Worse when publishing changed pages, since it does this twice - once to find the changed pages/conflicts, then again to check when the Publish button is pushed.

    FileZilla does do file comparisons, but it is not perfect, and, in my opinion, is awkward to use.
