hmm, that's hard to explain. You didn't see any ftp errors?

That makes me think that there's something funny with your web server, perhaps the directory where you're uploading things is not the one from which the web server is showing files.

If you ftp the files using another program (like Internet Explorer) to the same location, do they show up on the web site?

P.S. To ftp files with Internet Explorer, type this in the address bar:

Everything's OK now... :0)

I was using the my FTP settings from CuteFTP, which must have been doing something to my addresses in the background. Using Explorer like you suggested I noticed the actual FTP location...

...Using this address worked OK.

Thanks for the prompt reply.


PS. Have you checked out Interspector from which may give you some ideas for your editor ;0)
