Still working out the kinks for a couple of sites here and wanted to express some thoughts -

Allow us to simply right click on a page in the documents pane, and publish ONLY that page, and the accompanying assets (pictures) locally.

Another idea - instead of having a single option for where to place the rc_images for an entire project, also make that granular, so that each page could have a different sub folder. I'm sure photography websites would prefer to be able to keep portfolios separated both in local/ftp folders, as well as on different pages in the project, rather than dumping hundreds of pictures all into a single rc_images folder?

Thanks for coming to my TED talk!

Happy to join your TED talk

I fully support your "publish ONLY" proposal.

As for individual rc_images folders, I'm not so sure. I guess this would add a lot of complexity to the software, and the risk of bugs or failures might be bigger than the oppurtunities the feature would offer. I maintain a website on photography, and my rc_images folder currently hosts 556 items (images, thumbs, Java scripts). If I imagine I wanted to delete or replace a gallery I know I had a hard time to find and delete those images and thumbs which would no longer be needed in the rc_images folder. RocketCake won't do this for me.
On the other hand: so what? If the obsolete images and thumbs started worrying me I would simply delete the existing rc_images folder and let RocketCake create a new one. (Of course, I had to do this on the server as well and had to live with the lengthy upload.)

Good idea! Added to the TODO list.

Just saying, my blog is at 3000 images now, and takes four hours to upload if I were to wipe everything and go at it again with my current internet speeds. Sadly, I am in the wilds of northern Ontario and so options are limited. I am trying a new syncronisation programme that seems promising and should reduce my unneeded uploads though - it might also solve some of this issue. It would be nice if I could have yearly folders, and then if a year went sideways, I could just publish only THAT year and folder, and then wipe and upload, rather than having to do the current 13-14 years worth.

Cheers!

Wait! I had two ideas! Which was the good one?

I meant the "publish only" option, but will also think about the other. I also thought about only rewriting changed files, so you could sort the written files in explorer by date changed, which would probably also be useful.
