FTP Link???
« on: November 18, 2010, 05:33:07 PM »
In the comment section there is a button for "Insert FTP Link".  What is a FTP and what kind of stuff would I be putting in there?

FTP

Short for File Transfer Protocol, the protocol for exchanging files over the Internet. FTP works in the same way as HTTP for transferring Web pages from a server to a user's browser and SMTP for transferring electronic mail across the Internet in that, like these technologies, FTP uses the Internet's TCP/IP protocols to enable data transfer.

FTP is most commonly used to download a file from a server using the Internet or to upload a file to a server (e.g., uploading a Web page file to a server).
