Forget copying URLs... why can't we PASTE them

#1 Post by SenseiC » 2017-07-11 01:00

For years this has bugged me about FileZilla...

Why does the client not provide a mechanism to PASTING a FTP URL? I couldn't begin to count the number of times I have had to paste a URL like ftp://someusername:pv}KT9jz@arbitrary.example.com into an editor... then copy and paste the username, password, and server FQDN.

I've used FZ so blasted long I can't even remember what client I used before it... but if it had one feature that FZ sorely lacked... the ability to paste a URL

SenseiC bows out.

You can paste it into the quickconnect bar's host field.
