    I would be nice if there will be an option to open files from FTP and save them to FTP

      That would be nice

      Yes, I think that would improve this great editor.

      It's rather an extension than a build-in feature.
      It may be implemented (by me or by the one who is interested) as the plugin system is ready.

        When can we expect plugin support in this great tool? I really need feature that will support FTP editing/saving...

          Im not a big Novell fan, but Novells free NetDrive program works well for that sort of thing.  It can handle multiple FTP connections and treats them as if they where hard drives in windows.  Hence you can open and files directly off of the web using Notepad++ context menu or through filre|open.  When you click save or saveall it updates the changes through the FTP connection rather than you having to download and upload files.

          I wish FileZilla would work better, but it makes you set up notepad++ as default file editor and is really slow :(

          Hope this Helps!

          PS.  If anyone knows of a better freeware program than NetDrive, let me know. Thanks. :)

            Oh, buddy, many thx for this advise about NetDrive. I think now I do not need any FTP plugin for NOTEPAD++ :)

          The plugin support is planning in v3.2.
          Note that it's just an estimation but not a promise.

      NO, I hope not! I don't want an FTP client in what's supposed to be a text editor! This would turn an excellent editor into bloatware.

      Try Filezilla as your FTP client
      http://filezilla.sourceforge.net/

      and in the Run menu of Notepad++, use the following
      "C:\Program Files\FileZilla\FileZilla.exe" -u "$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)" ftp://USERNAME:PASSWORD@ftp.SERVER.com -t "$(FILE_NAME)"
      (taken from http://filezilla.sourceforge.net/cmdline.htm\)

      works for me :)

      You'll need to get rid of the

      and closing

      as the forum has entered it itself.
