V1.1.1

  • A FTP Site Manager was added to Tab 4. A Site Manager is a tool that takes a local source folder with all its files, e.g. a collection of website files and synchronizes it with a given FTP site directory. According to rules you set using the FTP Profile button, it will then upload, delete and otherwise process the remote FTP site files. The result is an automatically updated website or parts of it each time you change or remove local files, i.e. a syncronization process is started each time you hit the Sync! button, with the local folder serving as a reference to synchronize the remote files. WGM automatically takes your Destination Folder as the source for local files. On the FTP site side, it takes the directory specified in the currently loaded FTP Profile. You can change the FTP site directory as required. Obviously, you can add and remove files individually using the Local and Remote
    windows as well.
  • added is a further Website template "TopFrame_TopTitle". The Help will describe how you can add as many templates to the selection as required.
 

Known issues in the current version

Top of Page

V1.2.0

All Builds

  • it is possible to start more than one instance of WGM if the executables are in different folders
  • the sliders for Width and Height in the Images Tab do not react to Home and End keys properly. PgUp, PgDn and arrow keys work fine. Similar for the ThumbBar slider.
  • FTP Site Manager may take a long time to recognize that an FTP connection has been dropped. If WGM is connected to an FTP server and appears to be blocked after a longer inactivity period or during an extremely long upload, this is normal. You only need to wait for 15-20 seconds and an appropriate message will appear telling you what to do.
  • if the screen flickers a lot during resizing (which it does with some graphic cards), you can use Desktop / Properties / Effects and switch off the "show window content while dragging" box
  • with some W98 systems, thumbnails @ 50 and 80 pixels are not shown
  • first FTP connect sometimes makes WGM lose focus on screen
  • sometimes shows "Standard Mode - xxx" in the title even if you are in Express Mode
  • Slideshow: sometimes the "Start Again " button is not displayed correctly
