When I include a "File Upload" field on a webpage, it prompts me for the FTP username and password on submit.  I would like people to be able to submit files without giving them ftp access.  Is this possible?

I assume you're running the 2002 server extensions on your site?

yes.  The form submits fine when I use textboxes and drop-downs...  When I try to use a "file upload" field, the submit button produces a ftp login, presumably because i am trying to transmit a file.

adamdrayer,

Just for future reference, there is a Frontpage topic.  You don't have an HTML problem; you have Frontpage problem, and in you will probably find you get better support from experts that don't mind working with the HTML-like code that comes out of Frontpage.

My fault - I spend so much time in both areas I didn't even notice this was HTML. Adam - do you mind if we move this to the FP TA for you?

Well some updates now... I followed some instructions I found and created a new directory.  I'm pretty sure I gave all the correct privelidges, and now the error I am getting is "Form validation error.  Cannot open file Filename.xxx for writing", so I logged into the admin control panel for our website and gave everyone read/write/delete access for this particular directory that the files should be uploading to.  Still no luck...

This is Windows server?  Can you sign on via FP to the server - and check the permissions?  FP likes to control everything - so changing it from the control panel sometimes works.

Here's what happened.  For some reason, the "browsers" in my frontpage extensions weren't given the "browse" rule.  On top of that although I had given the browsers Read/Write/Delete access in my webhoster's admin panel, there was a hidden section in "Applications Settings" that had "browsing" disabled.

Everything works great now, and I will increase and split the points.

I'm not sure I deserve any points here.  I don't think I contributed anything towards a solution.

Someone's up early...

I concur - I think Corey was on the right track here - anyone mind if I remove the points from Cd& and myself?

Actually Sean moved it.  I just made the suggestion.  Points to Corey works for me.  My cave has too many points cluttering it up already. ;^)

yes, COBOLdinosaur(which btw, is an oxymoron) helped me get it into the right thread, and sean emailed somone to come take a look.  I was misinformed and underinformed so I think it would have been hard to troubleshoot for anyone.  Take the #$%! points, will ya?
