    DW CS3 dependencies when putting

      In Preferences I have both items under "Dependent Files" unchecked, yet DW CS3 always checks the file dependencies when I put files, and this is a VERY SERIOUS annoyance and waste of time. Isn't there a way to use PUT without incurring the programs unwanted attempt to check dependencies?

      For one thing, even though all the files are managed through DW, DW is often wrong about which version of the file is most current. Secondly, since I'm working with PHP and databases, I frequently PUT the same file to the webserver dozens of times in a day. Even though I have a test server on my local system, there are differences between the two webservers that make going back and forth a lot necessary.

      Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

          Check the Prompt before Put Preference. Put a file. When you get the
          Prompt, check the "do not ask again" box, and then click on NO. You will
          not be Prompted again, until you once again change the Preference.

            One quick question:

            Is this a normal ftp site with a Local site folder, or is it a RDS site
            working "live" on the remote server?

            In the Files Panel, is the icon next to the site folder a network icon [two
            computers] or a folder icon?

              Murray, thanks. I followed your instructions and hopefully that will be the end of it.

              Alan, yes, it is a normal ftp site (hosted at networksolutions).

                There are times when it's very convenient to have DW upload the dependent
                files....
