I Keith, Welcome to the forum.:)
Here's a bunch of info.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.

examples of what can be accomplished in VSD.
Here's my CoffeeCup SCCP Shop with examples of what can be done.

I didn't see anything there on FTP. However, ask any questions you need to here. As has been stated before, we're mostly a friendly bunch! :D

Maybe not the same as a video, but if you open the program and have a read-through the help file (top menu bar) while you have the program workspace open to refer to, you'll get a good idea of how to use it. Have your hosting account info handy if you want to follow along with steps 1 – 5 below. ;)
