#2834 new Feature request

Site management "mode" request

Reported by: Scott Gartner Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc: Scott Gartner, iamchrist
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


It would be very useful if FileZilla had a "site management mode" where it allowed me to designate a "logical root" directory for both local and remote servers. The two things that would be different in the interface when it was in this mode would be that it would prevent you from browsing "up" from the logical root, and that most transfer functions would only copy to the same level in the tree (for example if you right-clicked on /one/two/three/four on the remote site and chose download, it would always download to /one/two/three/four on the local site regardless of which directory was "current" in the left pane). You could always use drag-n-drop to force the tool to copy directories to a different location in the local tree (which would mean that dragging works exactly as it does now).

This mode would be extremely useful for web site developers and account managers who maintain a complete copy of their server account files on their local machine and constantly copy files back and forth. It would not eliminate copying errors, but would greatly reduce them.

The following feature requests are similar or related: 1856332, 1465356, 1323617, 1171949, 1149695, 1072125, 1052205, 853293, 829698

I included items asking for rsync or dir sync because having the download folder relationships fixed will make this synchronization more obvious and possibly easier.

I have to second this request. there's currently only one FTP client I can find with this feature, and without it, it's quite difficult to manage updating a website.
