Arbitrary File Upload using Dreamweaver

I have an operating site at http://fusion.enwphotos.com which I would now like to update with a new download link. The graphical interface thumbnail image went into place as expected, but the .pdf document (which the surfer downloads upon selecting the thumbnail) did not upload as expected.

This is strange to me, b/c in many prior instances, as in <a href="___" title="___"><img src = "___"></a>, I encountered no issues. I simply wrote the code, saved the page with 'auto-put on save' enabled, and all required files were 'put' to the remote server with no problem. The only difference here is that the file is much larger (12 MB). So, in a case like this, can I intervene directly with Dreamweaver, and explicitly upload the file to the desired location on the remote server, and if so, would one of you please point me in that direction.

Not quite sure what you are trying to do but a 12mb pdf? Is that what you are trying to upload for the user to download? If so why is it so big, is it for printing purposes?

If you want to upload files to your server without the aid of DW you will need an FTP client - something like Filezilla FileZilla - The free FTP solution

You'll need your password and username to access the FTP area but I assume you already have these as you would have been required to enter those in Dreamweaver at some stage.

One possibility is you may have reached the capacity of your hosting allocation if it didnt upload. Try it again or try it using an independent FTP client and see if that resolves the problem.

Hope that may help.......

Yes, I am used Fellswood yesterday and made a successful upload. I just wondered whether Dreamweaver had that ability by itself.

Fellswood, no idea but whatever it is seems as though you are saying it uploaded the file successfully.

Sorry, I meant Filezilla. I have seen and made many typos, but that one . . . no idea how that happened, unless it was an attempted spell-check correction which I did pick up priorate posting. I have seen and caught many of those in the past. Usually there is an opportunity to approve suggested changes prior to entering them; I may have missed this one.

Probably, looking at your original post I now see it came from your iPhone. These devices can be a bit overzealous when attempting to guess what word you are trying to type - It was probably confused by Filezilla and replaced it with Fellswood, but where it got that from is anyones guess.

#1  Dreamweaver doesn't like code errors.
