Thanks for the interest and support.
I’ve got a couple of hectic weeks ahead but then it’s my intention to spend some serious time updating and adding product to our site at which point I’ll turn on the logging feature and report back.
I’d be interested in your opinion on site size. Am I now pushing the boundaries of RW6’s capabilities at 150MB (no images)?
Maybe I’m asking too much of the ‘system’. The ftp upload doesn’t actually fail that often it’s just that after the addition of a single page the total time for export and then upload seems to take such a long time that if there is a failure (usually the last couple of files) it’s exaggerated.
My main gripe from my initial post was with the beach balling. My pages are fairly stack heavy but I rarely stray from JW’s Foundation stacks so I assume there’s reasonable compatibility.
As mentioned all my images are warehoused so I assume that doesn’t take up resources.
I don’t get a beachball on any other application I use with my reasonably specced and recent MBP 15. The fact that hovering over the dock stops a particularly bad spin suggests that a solution is possible.
Again, thanks for the interest.
