    Default Subfolders Through Other Web Host Publishing

    Other Web Host Settings...in Webproperties/Publish

    In XWD Premium 18, can you create subfolders for your main site on your server using this dialogue box? Using the Sub-Folder optional input?

    Or does an FTP Client have to be used to create the subfolders before publishing with Xara?

    If I am publishing articles into a subfolder example... 'mymainsite/Articles/goose-attacks-mayor/' can I create the subfolders 'Articles" and "/goose attacks mayor/" from XWD 18P before or at publishing the separate articles?

    Or there is no way around using Filezilla?

    I see other info about earlier XWD versions as a no, but 18 Premium?

    Thanks..

    Yes, just type in the sub-folder section something like /public_html/goose-attacks-mayor/ At the bottom left of this publish window is an 'Explore Web Space'. If there is no such sub-folder on your server Xara will ask if you wish to create one. Hit yes and it will show you the sub-folder (empty at present because you've not published yet) Then publish.

    Yes, Xara will create the subfolder for you automatically.

    If your site has public_html in the optional subfolder box, you would add public_html/test in the same optional subfolder setting and Xara will create the folder and pop the new sub site inside.

    Thanks all...for the fastest comment.

    I do have Filezilla, but as you all know I have to do things the hard way. To confirm-

    Bluehost has that public_html/ folder needed to publish my root index site to (example..public_html/BourneJour. (This is for the main site).

    Then I have to create a folder called Articles. (example...public_html/BourneJour/Articles (This is for the main subfolder containing the 40 articles).

    Then I have to create the 40 folders within the main subfolder Articles to publish each separate article to it's own folder...

    (example..public_html/BourneJour/Articles/fish-eats-boat/

    XWD18 does this. I'll follow this further and if I have an issue I will post.

    Thanks,

    Why not make life easy for yourself and publish from Web Designer?

    I see that sample that you did with Davora/Properties. Thanks, Egg. I've been checking your example there too.

    @ChrisM...thank you for the tip.

    Close but no coconut.

    You seem to be getting confused by having an 'articles' subfolder as well as an 'articles.htm' on the root directory.

    Here's how I see your site as you are having many sub-folders below your 'articles' sub-folder. I've altered the name of the sub-folder to 'sub-folder' (cunning) instead of 'articles'.

    By the way when developing the site ignore the Website URL inclusion.
