FTP program with built-in HTML editor?

Hello,

I've been using Coffeecup's FTP program for doing some web editing. One of the features I like is it's got a built in text/HTML editor so I can edit an HTML file right there, without having to save it to my computer, edit, and then reupload. It does it all in one step.

For some reason, it no longer works with my FTP site. It connects, but won't pull up the directory. Other FTP programs, like Smart FTP, have no problem connecting. I've tried several computers and all give the same results. My ISP has no clue.

Anyway, are there any other FTP programs out there that have a built-in editor, like Coffeecup's does?

Thanks!

Alls i need is something to edit text with, not anything fancy. All Coffeecup would do is open the text, html, whatever file in a text editor, letting you edit it, and it would save directly to the FTP site, o need to save to yoru computer and upload.

Try FTPVoyager - what you can do is just click on a file on the server and "edit" it and it will download it to a temporary location, open it in your default editor, and then when you close/save it, FTPVoyager will ask you if you want to upload the saved copy. It's quite handy and I just download HTML files, quickly edit them with Notepad and they upload nice and easily.

I don't have the website off hand, but I'm sure a search will turn it up. It's not free though...

Try transmit, if you're using a mac. That thing is pretty sweet.

Or, BBEdit. A text editor (that doesn't suck) with a built-in FTP client.

FileZilla. http://filezilla.sourceforge.net Awesome program with very regular updates. I just use Homesite, then upload the files with this program. It allows you to set a default program to view/edit the files with, so just set it to notepad and you'll have the same sort of thing you had with your other program.

I use jEdit for most of my website editing. You can download an ftp plugin for it that will let you edit pages on a remote site.

MX 2004 is better... I would recommend the upgrade (CSS baby!).

By the way, if you're behind a firewall and haven't tried this, you might want to try enabling passive mode in CoffeeCup's ftp client to see if it resolves anything.

It's a website for one of my school organizations. The website, FTP, and myself are all on the same domain and network on campus. So firewialls aren't a problem. But thanks for the tip!
