    Default Last Save / Publish Location

    I beleive that a most usefull feature would be that of BV saving, by default, a new page to (and also open from) the last used folder.

    So, if i have organized my BV pages in folders, inside my BV folder, and i try to open a page, BV by default will look in the last used folder. The same for Save.

    This is a standard feature of most Windows applications (Notepad, Word, Excel, Photoshop, Autocad, Corel, even Notepad, etc) at least within the same session.

    Going further on, a similar feature for publishing the pages would be also very usefull. So, if i have once published a page in "public_html/foldername", it would by default publish in the same folder the next time i edit the page and want to publish it.

    Hi! Not sure if Naval meant this as well. But for many BV users with multiple sites this would also be handy to recognize which IP/user name/ & possibly the password it was published to. (With still keeping the facilities to change it if needed)

    Sure would be handy Chris. Look at Upload Destination Folder Browser and Memory . But seems rather difficult to accomplish.

    Ah George! Showing your VH age. No wonder I hadn’t seen it (12-06-2005, 06:17 AM) lol.
    Even meeting half way would help. IE: Make the fields a drop down style that can be made to memorize (if wanted) . Would also be nice if the next field’s auto populated from the previous drop down selection.
    Sort of an idea at this link. Excuse the mess was actually working on something else. But you will get the drift.

    Hi Chris, great work you have done there.

    I would actually prefer a dependent dropdown solution like in http://www.dbtechnosystems.com/dependent_drop_downs.php

    However, i do understand that all the above is rather difficult, so i would be happy with the solution of the last saved / published location memorizing

    Yep, that would solve it. Then all you have to do is drill down the fields to where you want to publish to.

    Hope the powers above are listening/reading. lol

    I agree with naval. I publish my galleries into a different folder, simply for organizational purposes. But then when I publish a different page and forget to change the publish to folder, that page goes into my gallery folder. If BV would remember where each of my pages is published, and auto fill this selection, this would make it very easy on me.

    What a great idea, a HUGE timesaver and potential error-avoider..
