Talking AutoStore Welcome Message & Retry Resume download Feature IDEAS

It would be a very cool feature, if you could set an Auto Welcome Message Store Folder and checkbox for on/off , so that FlashFXP would automatically Safes the Welcome Message of a connecting remote Site. Often there are news when you connect to a site and the ppl not always really read the welcome message, with that feature they could , backwards read necessary infos like , coming changes to some ftps when they suddenly couldn´t connect anymore.

The Name convention shouldbe like that

or almost better creating subfolders in
Storage | SiteName | Month or. Week | File(logical naming)

C:\FFXP\WelcomeStorage\SiteName\Month\SiteName_Mon th_Time

because there will be alot of TXT files after a while.

Another Feature:

Sometimes it happens that when u dl from a very slow Site , that the connection got broken, the files are set then on NotDownloaded in the Queue(red Cross) but that necessarily doesn´t means it wasn´t really to download, so if u reactivate them and restart download again they will resume, if u made the right 'If File Exists' rule.

So add new :

Retry Transfers Amout (0 .... 100 )
0 means never retry
else ,
reset broken transfers in queue after finsihed download, and retry to download them the selected times
( auto reset back to download again after each try)

FlashFXP already saves welcome message in status log file. you can always read it from there.

restore broken transfers already exist in flashfxp. options, "transfer" tab.

You could extend this idea, by adding option to compare last cached welcome with the current welcome message (or last N lines of cached message against last N lines of current message, to allow dynamic contents.. usually the most important information is at the end of message)

Default Status Log wasn´t that

Well thanks for that advise, but status laog wan´t that what i talked about.
the status log is filled up with ****loads of information u don´t need in that case.
See the welcome message saver as an addition , extension to the status logging.

But i will try the restore broken transfer feature.


download, feature, message, retry, site
