gFTP issue.
 
Nothing serious, but always before, when I was editing a file, I'd save + close it...and it would ask me if I wanted to upload the edited file to the server. This was very nice.

Now it no longer does this. I'm not sure why it stopped asking me.

Do you know how to fix this?

Thanks.

This is an interesting question since gFTP has no editing capibilities. Have you got gFTP confused with some other program?

yes it does...

Right click on file...goto edit ;).

It opens it up in an editor...(i just use kwrite).

Once you save and exit out of the editor, it always asked me if i wanted it to upload the file to the server. Now it doesn't ask me..

But yeah...it does allow you to edit file...

gFTP 2.0.17

You are right. I had forgotten that gFTP would call an external editor. When I try editing a file on mine I get weird results. When I save and exit the kwrite editor gFTP also terminates.

"wierd...."

I think that you have hit a bug in gFTP. I don't think that gFTP handles the return from kwrite correctly. It may mishandle the return differently depending on whether you are editing a remote file or a local file. You should report the bug to Brian Masney. I think that Brian's email addres is in the gFTP documentation.

I ran into this problem again with another distro =\. Kind of annoying, considering I have to find the tmp files, and rename it, and upload it, every time I edit something on my site (which is usually multiple times). Does anyone know a way to make it ask to upload the file? Or a better FTP client?
