Need help with FTP and VSD

Hello,

I'm still using VSD and recently was unable to publish my site. I emailed Coffee Cup and Suzanne notified me of the changes made to S-Drive and VSD - mentioned here: https://www.coffeecup.com/forums/design … o-s-drive/
I am totally confused on how to proceed. Do I need to upload my existing site through the FTP now, or just my changes from now on? And what is my sequence now for making changes and updates to my site? Do I add text and images in VSD like before, but upload all the images to the FTP? How do I get VSD to link to my FTP? I've read the help pdf about the Free FTP program I downloaded, but I'm still confused... I'm used to the one-button publishing I used for years.
Any help would be appreciated...
Thanks in advance,
Sean

Yes do everything in vsd as you did before. Save your site than open one of CC's ftp programs that still hooks to S-Drive and upload all of the files within your vsd project.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

examples of what can be accomplished in VSD.

Hi Eric,
Upload all the files from my existing site, or just my changes from now on?

Thanks,

You can upload just the changes if you like. Pages are easy but don't forget images. Once you get use to doing and are successful it will become easier.
