Not sure if this is an update cdhange, but I can no longer see how my FTP uploads are going.

It used to show a bar, with the names etc, but now merely shows the name & number of bytes uploaded, along with the total bytes of the file. I know that shoiuld be enough but I liked the old syatem where a bar showed the progress. Is it possible to get that back somehow?

DW is convenient for quick page updates but for large data transfers or multi-GB media files, I prefer to use a dedicated S/FTP client like free FileZilla or Transmit FTP by Panic.   You can do more with a dedicated client.

My Internet connection is so fast, ordinary HTML, CSS and JS files upload in mere seconds.  If I blink, I miss it. 🙂

 

Click the globe icon below your Files Panel to see Background File Activity.

You can check your FTP log to see what was uploaded.  Window > Results > FTP Log.

 

Hope that helps.

I suffer froma fairly poor internet connection but have always had that bar, although it has been completed in your screenshot so there is no blue line, which is what I've lost.

In my screenshot (part of anyway) you'll see I have always used that same window, but it now lacks the bar.

On my Windows machine, there is no progress bar either.

On my windows machine there used to be, & I hope there should be. If it's been disposed of then Dreamweaver is, as Birnou pointed out, going downhill badly. I now have the file uploading in FileZilla, so I can watch the progress easily! Perhaps it's time to switch to Notepadd++ & FileZilla. Save a LOT of cash!

Depending on how many files I'm uploading simultaneously, a blue progress bar might flash on briefly and abruptly dissappear.  To be honest, It's not something I pay attention to.

in fact, as soon as there are a lot of files, blue line or not blue line, there is no indicator of the global time left... nor of the number of files that have been processed, nor how many are left...


moreover after a certain number of files transferred the integrated log window does not refresh anymore...


in an other hand, filezilla causing more and more problems on some types of transfer, and volume (i.e.. just to check, take a slow connection, unzip a WP archive and transfer it... (I know it's preferable zipped, but it's just to demonstrate the shortcomings of filezilla)... so transfer)...

you'll have at least fifteen files that will be left stranded... and paradoxically, you won't be able to transfer them again... and worse, you won't be able to delete them...

 

so...


for slow connections I would recommend (without any hesitation) to use the file manager integrated to Plesk or CPanel, depending on your host

Hi @tattiedave,

Thanks for writing to us. We are unable to recreate the issue internally with Dw version 21.3 on Win 10. Can you please try resetting Dw app preferences bu following the steps mentioned in the below KB article and see if the issue gets resolved.

like Nancy you must have a super fast connection, because here the DW FTP client use and feel has remained the same since Macromedia... except for the connection mode, it has not evolved in ergonomics, in usability and in stability...


requests for improvement over the years have always been ignored... :

  • Impossibility to open multiple sessions at the same time
  • impossibility to switch to a different site project during a transfer
  • no action possible on the queue order
  • no information about the global time still needed
  • no synchronization of navigation between folders
  • no management of the recovery of files that triggered a transfer error
    ...

and it's not now that DW is in minimal maintenance, that there is a chance that the FTP client will evolve, one way or the other... if you don't have time to see a transfer bar... see it as luck... please, enjoy it 😉

Possibly wise words Nacy.

I may give FileZilla a go instead now.

either if I fully agree with Nancy, and especially if you drive a low connection, please, refer to my previous comment few lines above, concerning files transfer
