Ask to overwrite

Has anyone figured out why the HTML Editor uploader will not prompt an "ask to overwrite" a file even though it is setup to do so in the upload to server section? It started during the last update. Today I even updated to V17 and setup a new upload site and prompted it to ask before overwriting and uploaded a file already on the server and it did not ask me if I wanted to overwrite it

It works for me. I just change the setting in my site and it asked.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Weird.... I even deleted the site and re-added it. Tried unchecking "Passive mode" and I have it set for "Standard FTP" with "ask" selected and still it never promtps me to overwrite

Try switching to overwrite and back to ask.

Hi Capt'n, sure you are using the free version, not the paid one?

Anyway, I have reported it directly to the developer and he is looking into it.

Edit: I have a reply already, how's that for a Sunday morning?: "Yeah, there's a bug. Have them go into the FTP Settings, click advanced to drop down the advanced options, and then set the overwrite setting. It's probably blank instead of defaulting to "Ask". I'm fixing it now for the next release."
Ha en riktig god dag!

I paid for it. Yes the box when originally setting it up is blank but even when I set it to "ask" it still does not prompt me and it immediately overwrites the file

Mine was blank also but did work when I changed it.
