I Would Love FTP Support

    I code using ColdFusion, HTML, and CSS.  Most of my work is done directly via FTP editing files on the server.  I would use Notepad++ exclusively if you guys offered direct opening, editing, and saving of files via FTP.  That would be better than diving into a bowl full of boobies.

    Big request, I know.

    Thanks!

      you can user filezilla. Set it to view and edit file with notepad++

      it will upload the file once it changes

      Ugh, no, Notepad++ was designed to be a text editor. A great one. Not a swiss army knife. This would turn an excellent editor into bloatware.

      There have already been threads on this.

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

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

      works for me, although you'll need to save the document first :)

      I 2nd that. I entered the forums precisely to say the same thing. Kudus for a great editor!

      I have tried the filezilla with notepad.  I has never updated anything on the server and sometimes the notepadd++ complains the file no longer exists.

      The part of using filezilla and notepad that I don't like is that I have to close notepad and having multiple files open is a plus for notepad plus (jaja).

      I will try netdrive
