After I don’t know when RW 8 came out, FTP has been a ongoing problem.
Even in RWC it still is a big nuisance. See movie, this is standard behaviour.
I always thought that RW woud open an FTP channel and upload all files and then close it.
But … I have found that, although it looks like a ‘global’ setting under ‘Publishing’, it actually is not. Each page has a key with the FTP-link in it, thus I think RW opens a new FTP channel for every single file, which, if that is the case, I find a bit simple.
And because of these ‘Failed transfers’, I can only use 1 file upload setting, instead of 6, because otherwise, the whole transfer is marked invalid, and you have to start to upload all 300 files AGAIN, instead of only the failed ones.
I am really vexed after all these years having to look at ‘Transfer failed’ 5s, 4s, 3s, 2s, 1s …
