Same here WayneO.
I’m preparing to inform my bosses that RW may no longer be suitable for our needs, even though we’ve invested heavily in it over the years. We can’t afford to use software that continually needs workarounds for basic functionality, and that other apps have no issue with, and whilst we appreciate the convenience of design and build, it now feels crippled. Plus, I’ve had on-off issue with FTP in RW since I started using it in Version 3, so I’m a little concerned it’s resurfaced. This is also the first time that we’ve not been able to fix it, either by discussing with our hosts, or with RW support, too.
Of course, it may not be RapidWeaver, it could be document corruption. I’ve have two documents corrupt on me, although neither of these exhibited FTP issues. Such corruption also sends warning signals about the size of potential RW sites, as rebuilding a site with hundreds of pages - in the same app that it corrupted in - does not sound like a wise idea.
