try this - start wsftp - in the left hand pane you should see files listed - browse through just like old windows explorer until you find the directory with your files - connect to your isp - (if you know their homepage is www.isp.com then try ftp.isp.com) using your username and password that you log in with (when you dial in) - once connected, simply shift-letf click - highlighting all the files in the lefthand pane (the ones on your local hard-drive that you want to upload) and click the button that looks like a right arrow in the middle of the screen... it will then transfer the files to your "website" and you'll be set - if you need furthur explanation or don't know your isp, please reply

I was able to connect to my web site, but when I sent a copy of the web page I made it said transfer complete but did not display file on directory for web site.  What could I have done wrong and where could it have gone?  I did make sure I used the ascII button for text.

what's the address of your site - have you tried hitting it from outside (browser) to see if the file did in fact go?

My web site is http://home1.gte.net/index.htm The page that I see on my site is one I made with a gte site (kind of a fill in the blank site maker)I not sure what you want me to do.  I have very limited computer knowledge everything I know I've taught myself in the few months.
