Hello, can anyone help as we have wiped the program (accidentally) which gave us an "FTP" option on a right mouse click to post files to the web.

I will have the babies of any one who can direct us to a download and restore this file function.

Ever hopefull

Regards to all.

Mike

C:\Program Files\Web Publish\WPWIZ.EXE is the wizard for setting up web publishing in XP. Maybe that's what you should try. Also, if the shortcut to publish stuff was accidentally deleted might it still be in your Recycle Bin. If so just drag it out of there and drop it in your SendTo folder in \Documents and Settings\<user_name>\SendTo.

ADDED: The more I look at your message the more I think what you're referring to is you accidentally deleted a program like CuteFTP that offers Explorer shell integration so you can right click on an file and FTP it to your website.

Let me know which scenario above best describes your situation. Thanks.

Thanks Gary

It was a seperate freeware or shareware program which was recommended on WebmasterWorld to us and put an "FTP to" function into the menu choice when you right click on a file or graphic in the web folders on your hard drive.

This function is not on XP and the wizzard does not give you this lovely simple option for FTP of files.

We were removing unused programs to try an speed up and repair the function of our system and did not recognise the program, so it got removed. (now a lot better, but we can not update our webs.

Thanks

Just found the old thread

Here ya go spiky,
This utility has the ability to add an 'ftp_to' for the right click menu for single or multiple files. Just what you had before...

After you install, you have a shortcut in your start menu. When run, scroll down the list and check the ftp utility. Then you see a link unter that to add your ftp server to the list of ftp sites you need to use.

Hope that helps...

Other good features as well, I like the 'find duplicate files' or change dates on files, etc.

I'm a late sleeper but I'm glad you found the program on your own. Another problem solved. ;)
