Creating desktop icons for uploads to specific collections (Advanced)
Who would want to use this?
If you make regular uploads to one or more collections within your account, you could create FTP shortcuts to upload directly to that collection.
What do I need to do to set up?
This is advanced functionality.
- Create additional FTP accounts for each collection you want to have a short cut.(What happens when I create a secondary FTP account?)
- Set each FTP account to auto-import into a specified collection (Automatic FTP imports)
- Add each FTP account to the site manager within FileZilla
- Create a new FileZilla Shortcut for each FTP account:
- Right click the shortcut icon and select "Properties"
- Enter: -c "0/sitename" as shown below, changing the sitename to your site name in the site manager
- Change icons if wanted to make more recognisable on your desktop
You should now have an icon on your desktop that when opened will upload files to a special FTP account that auto0-imports files hourly into a preselected collection.
