How to use FTP to publish

I have the Home (free) version of City Desk.  I am unable to figure out how to publish via FTP.

Try putting CityDesk in designer mode (View >> Designer Mode or just Ctrl-M).

You will see the locations button all the way on the right.  Click that, then click Add in the window that pops up.

Then just follow the directions on the setup wizard.

Howard, you have to publish from within CityDesk.  You can't use an external FTP program.  (Well, I suppose you *could*, but you'd have to publish your site first to a temporary location on your hard drive, and then use FTP to transfer them to your web server).

If this answer doesn't help, could you provide additional details about your problem?

Thanks for both of the responses.  Putting City Desk into "Designer Mode" allowed me to see where I could setup the FTP.  And it actually works fine!
