    files panel toolbar

    enoether
      I would like to use Dreamweavers's ftp capability to send my files to a
      remote server. I've read the instructions in "Dreamweaver MX 2004 - The
      Missing Manual" by David McFarland. However, the screenshots of the Files
      Panel don't look like Files Panel in my session: I don't have a row of
      buttons of File Transfer Tools. In other words, there is no toolbar for the files
      panel -- unless I click on the option Expand Files Panel which gives me this
      Files Panel in its own separate window.

      Also, when I expand, I don't see how to get the views of the local and remote sites side-by-side.

      Thanks for any help.

              The following from Dreamweaver tech support:
              ****
              About your issue, this is usually caused by wrong a type of site definition. There are two types of site definitions when your create a new one; the first one is "Site" which is the one that enables the Files Panel Tool bar to be viewed, and the other one is the "FTP/RDS Server" which disables the toolbar.

              I would recommend that you create a new site definition with "Site" as the type. Please follow the link below for the walkthrough & additional information about site definitions.
