I find Kompozer help on publishing vague - I use
on my Macbook when I happen update when away. Just
trying with the Windows version

I have it working this way

1. On Publish Page - Settings

A Site Name - Rootsweb or anything I suppose - it
will remember the folder etc - best to use the

In Publishing address

Then my Id and password

The help says to put URL in Web Site info box -
not clear why - and I left it blank - just added
and cannot see anything it does

There is also a button "Select Directory" - does
not seem to do anything except when clicked new
Site and thye button shows my computer

2. On Publish Page - Settings

The Site name

The file currently selected - you can enter a
Title for file

Then a box for Site Directory for this page
and it does look like you have to enter the
directory manually.
Well once at least - it keeps a drop down list for
future use.
But it does not seem to remember which directory
you used last time.


I will stay with filezilla - can open all folders
easily and the comparison button tells me what I
need to publish etc
