Documentation / Server Management
« on: December 04, 2007, 08:54:53 AM »
Creating a server
When you start Rightload the first time, the list of servers will be empty and you will not be able to upload any files. To create a new server, follow these steps:

  • Open the Server Management tab by clicking on Tools -> Options and then clicking on Servers on top (or just click Yes in the "Welcome to Rightload" dialog box)
  • Click the button New Server
  • Enter the name you want to give the server
  • A new form should open on the right of the window - fill in the connection details here
  • You can use the button Test to test your connection settings


Server Types

FTP
If you have a normal webspace, this will most likely be the right server type for you.

SFTP
SFTP is a more secure protocol that uses FTP via SSH. SFTP is not recommended, because it uses an external application to upload files, which leads to slow speed and instability. If you are using SFTP, your current upload speed and percentage uploaded cannot be displayed.

HTTP
Rightload now also supports uploads to HTTP sites like imageshack.us or other file hosts. Since these servers are rather hard to set-up, it is recommended you request a pre-defined server file from us instead.

Advanced Settings

Auto-Sort
Auto-sort allows you to let Rightload automatically sort your files to different directories depending on their extension. For example, you can define a rule that sorts all files ending with 'jpg' to the directory 'images'. Use 'Upload with auto-sort' from the context menu to activate auto-sort.

The Document Root Directory
Some servers require your files to be uploaded to a certain directory (e.g. /htdocs, /html, /domain.tld) before they show up on the web server. If this is the case for you, you can set the name of that directory here. Otherwise just leave it empty. This directory will not show up in the generated URLs. All other paths are relative to this directory.

Please note that root directories entered WITHOUT a slash ("/") at the beginning are relative to your home directory. That means that if your home directory is "/home/me" and your root directory "html", Rightload will upload your files to "/home/me/html". On the other hand, if your home directory is "/home/me" and your root directory "/html", the files will be uploaded to "/html".
Your home directory is usually the directory you start in when you connect to your server from a normal FTP client.


The Default Directory
Here you can define the folder that will initially be selected in the directory field in the main window when this server is selected. This can either be a folder you created in Rightload, a special setting like autosort or path mirroring, or any other directory name.

Path Mirroring Base
Path Mirroring allows Rightload to automatically determine the target folder of a file based on its location on your computer. For example, you might want all files saved under C:\Files\images to go to the directory "images" on the server, all files saved under C:\Files\texts go to the directory "text", and so on. To do this, you would just set the Path Mirroring Base to C:\Files and Rightload would figure out the target directory from that. This settings is useful if you want the files on your server to have the same directory structure as the ones on your computer, for example because you are developing a website.

The URL Mask
Sometimes, for example if your FTP host name differs from your actual host name, the URLs generated by Rightload will not be correct. You can fix this by setting your own URL mask. For that, you can use several variables:
$host will be replaced by the host name
$dir will be replaced by the directory the files were uploaded to
$file will be replaced by the file name
$user will be replaced by your user name

For example, 'http://myserver.edu/~$user$dir$file' will turn into 'http://myserver.edu/~username/exampleDirectory/exampleFile.exe'.

Use the button 'Preview' to test your URL mask.

Rightload - Official Forums / Limit upload speed
« on: December 03, 2007, 02:25:23 PM »
I definitely see the need for a speed limit, but I don't think I will be able to get it into the next version. This is a pretty complicated problem, unfortunately.

Rightload - Official Forums / extensions, active mode
« on: December 03, 2007, 02:22:15 PM »
Thanks for the bug reports!

Unfortunately I'm not sure what might be causing your problem with active mode. It works perfectly for me, even though I'm behind a router. I could add an option to enter your actual external IP address somewhere (which should fix the problem) but I would prefer to find an automatic solution. Can you connect to the server using other FTP programs or do you get a similar error?

The transfer type setting not working is definitely a bug, though. It will be fixed in the next beta.

Could you enable logging and send me the log.txt from your RightLoad directory? Thanks!

« on: November 24, 2007, 11:26:48 PM »
edit: link fixed


Here is the latest beta version of RightLoad - 1.0. I rewrote large parts of the program since the last version, so please let me know if anything unexpected happens!



Changelog since 0.8:
There have been a lot of changes since RightLoad 0.8, the last stable release. Here is a list of the most important ones.
* Improved stability, fixed bugs
* Main screen rewritten
* Options screen rewritten
* Can create subdirectories
* Can synchronize list of directories from server
* Can create thumbnails for PNG images
* Can resume incomplete uploads
* Can duplicate servers
* Can set transfer type (binary/ASCII/auto)
* Can set thumbnail quality and naming scheme
* Can copy links to clipboard automatically

Download RightLoad 1.0 Beta
RightLoad_Setup_1.0_beta.exe

Warning: Because of some bigger changes behind the scenes, RightLoad 1.0 will not be able to load all the settings from your old installation. Any directories with slashes in them will be removed. Please check your options after installing 1.0 and make sure everything is set up correctly.

About RightLoad
RightLoad is a small program that allows you to quickly upload files directly from a Windows folder to your server. Instead of using a complicated FTP client just to upload a few pictures, you just right-click on the files, select the server and target folder and RightLoad will do the rest for you. When all files have been uploaded, RightLoad will automatically generate a list of different links to the files, ready to be copied into your post or website.



Features
* Uploads files or whole folders to any directory on your server with one click
* Automatically creates thumbnails for pictures
* Adds [url], [img], <a> or <img> tags to the links
* Auto-renames existing files and creates missing directories

Weird... after upgrading to 0.9 beta I cant upload from context menu anymore. rightload menu appear but nothing happened when I click them.
What version of Windows are you using? Did you check if the 'add to context menu' setting is enabled?

Quote from: joelblueyes
Great!

Nils, does this version enables stop and resume?
If not, would you consider doing that?

Again, great application,
Joel
It doesn't but 1.0 will, which should come out soon. This version is from July and there have been a lot of changes since then.

There should be a setting during the installation whether you want to save the config file in appdata or in the normal directory.

When you select a link tag (either or [url]) as the output tag, the list entry for a picture with thumbnail will look like this:


You should be able to just copy that and get a thumbnail that's linked to the full image.


If you need a stand-alone version, just take the file "RightLoad.exe" from the installation directory. The other files aren't really required for RightLoad to work, so you should be able to run it somewhere else without any problems.

Rightload - Official Forums / Filelist is empty
« on: November 19, 2007, 05:55:38 PM »
Hi Jeroen,

RightLoad does not keep a list of uploaded items, so there is no way to delete files right now. You might want to install a normal FTP client (e.g. FileZilla) to do more advanced tasks like deleting files or setting access permissions.

Rightload - Official Forums / Access permmision to a specific folder
« on: November 07, 2007, 09:40:27 AM »
If the account works with other programs it'd be great if you could send me your log file so I can see what might be going wrong.

Thanks!

« on: November 06, 2007, 10:27:55 PM »
The host name should be www.myserver.com. What did you enter as the default directory? What's the error message? Did you try if the account works with another FTP client?

I will probably add this to the next version. :)

I will look into this, but there are a few other things I have to work on first.
