hello,
first of all, thanks for S-Drive!
I haven't understood how site works...
Only with VisualDes?
When I try to upload files, i can't choose the dir where to put'em, so i can't upload an index file in the root...

Bye!

Hi Franco

One of the great things about S-Drive is you no longer have to worry about that. The software knows where to put everything for you. Just select your site and click "Publish". We will do the rest.

When you upload your website through Visual Site Designer it will do that automatically for you. You will then see it here at http://tatranky.coffeecup.com/site/

Also, make sure you are using the latest version of Visual Site Designer (7.0 build 15).

I accidently uploaded/published a new website I am working on to an existing CP visual website. see www.melbournebeachfitness.com. The new website is for a realtor. It is published on top of the fitness website. Oh man what did I do, and please is there an easy fix? Thank you Mary. I must have been working on the realtor website and went to publish it and selected the gym website by accident.

I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

This is a site I built for my work.(RSD)

I have a website and wanted to test with s-drive.
A just change the CNAME and everything went fine with a new page made with VSD but, I wanted my old website made with HTML Editor and therefore wanted to upload to S-Drive.
What are the ftp settings for manual upload?

I'm loving S-Drive and wondering to do some radical changes, now in beta test also

thanks & regards

I forgot to say that with the changes of CNAME I lost contact with my former website, yes I can ask my provider to revert the situation.

You can only upload to S-Drive with VSD right now. Over time we will add support for our other programs. You can sort of hack this though using VSD and here is how:

1. Create a one page site in VSD
2. Add all of your HTML files created in the HTML Editor to the Edit Menu > Add Files inside of VSD.
3. Next, go to the Edit Menu > Edit Header and paste in this code:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=http://sitename.coffeecup.com/pagename.html">

4. Publish to your S-Drive account.

Now when you go to the S-Drive account, it will automatically refresh to the page you specified in step #3.
