client feature request: copy url to clipboard [http]

#1 Post by ixm7 » 2010-06-16 20:12

A Right-click on server-side files provides a menu option of "copy url(s) to clipboard"
However, that version provides an FTP url.

It would be very useful to provide another menu option for copying http url's to clipboard.
To simplify things, you could let the user specify the desired http prefix before the file name.

Different protocol = different server = potentially entirely different (virtual) filesystem layout.

Without prior knowledge of those details, FTP URLs just cannot be converted to HTTP URLs.

That's why I suggested the following:
"To simplify things, you could let the user specify the desired http prefix before the file name."

In other words, an option that is stored once per each ftp site would allow the user to specify the http path to the server.

Please, I would like to use this option too! I think FireFTP (on browser) and Transmit for Mac OS X have this option too.

The problem is: when we copy URL path to clipboard, instead we copy ftp://user@example.com/folder/file.x, we will copy the file path on ftp server but replacing "ftp://user@example.com" by our http link (configured manually). The final result will be http://www.example.com/uploads/folder/file.x (red color is what we write manually on this desire option).

Please botg, consider this option!

Yes, it's a good proposition and not so difficult to add.
Please make it.
It's very useful to share big files with client

Have a nice day

I couldn't agree more with this request. In fact I was just logging on to request the same feature.

When I copy URL to the clipboard now I get

ftp://myname@www.example.com/httpdocs/mydir/myfile.txt

Every time I do this I need to replace it with the following:

http://www.example.com/mydir/myfile.txt

(note I need to replace the beginning AND get rid of the 'httpdocs' directory that leads to the root of the website itself)

If the site config could just offer a "replace this string" "with this string" feature it would work perfectly. For me it is always the same hard-coded string.

Thanks for considering.

For my use, it's fine to provide the ftp address, but removing the login information would be a great help.

I'd rather have: than: Seems that parsing that out would be pretty simple, just scrape out everything after ftp:// through @

I add to this. I have co workers that want to use photobucket because "filezilla is too hard".

I too am making an account here for the sole initial purpose of requesting this feature. When I had to work on a Mac we used Transmit and it had this feature. It set the URL based on the initial folder, so if your "Default remote directory" FTP folder was "/public_html/url.site.com/video" you would set the public URL to be "http://url.site.com/video". When you copied the URL of a file (lets call it "001.mp4") it would give you "http://url.site.com/video/001.mp4".

Right now when I am copying links I have to double check that I replace the username and password from each of the copied URLs so people can't log into our account.

I love EVERYTHING else about this software, this is the one feature that it needs to be perfect for me. Thank you for all the work your team does in keeping this software alive and free. :-)

This feature would be very helpful. Maybe have it an option in "Site Manager".

Checkbox - Replace ftp://myserverIP/ with (fill in the blank - http://example.com) when copy to url.
Sub-Checkbox - Start in directory for url link /public_html/

Or

Checkbox - Replace (fill in the blank where we put in the ftp we want removed) with (fill in the blank where we put the http we want displayed instead.)
In this case we would be responsible to include the /public_html/ folder in the first blank for it to be removed.

Thanks so much!

I also registered only for this functionality request!

Up up up again! This is obviously a highly requested feature, please make it happen!

I don't get the "it's a different protocol" argument, in the end it is a "replace text X with Y" functionality.
