Uploading to internet  en

When using the inbuilt 'Upload to Internet' facility (rather than an external FTP client), WebPageX5 always upoads EVERYTHING again, even though I have the box ticked to just upload updated pages, and I have only made one small change to a single page.  A waste of time and bandwidth, but why is it doing this?

To be sure that all pages work correctly all links also in the background that are there to the page you have changed will also be uploaded. Don't worry there is more going then it looks on the surface.

..actually I'm not sure this is really correct.  X5 persists in uploading all the PDF documents which are referenced although they have not changed

For pdf's if linked it will upload because it is related, also file's like pdf.

If there are many or if they are big, upload them seperatly and use a link to the (already) uploaded pdf in your project. This way you save a lot of time.

Yes Andre, I have been doing that with the larger files in order to avoid unnecessary uploading.  It is very neat to have the inbuilt uploading facility, by I generally tend to FTP any changed files using FileZilla - it's quicker.
