HI is there a way to put files on a website directory but delay the upload (stop them showing until a pre-set time)? I am using fileZilla but can change if needed :mrgreen:

What operating system are you using ?

The easy thing to do would probably be scripting the command-line FTP application likely already present on your system to upload anything it finds in a local directory, then delete/move the local copies.

Then setup an automated-task or cron-job to run that script at certain times.

Unless they're large files and this start time needs to be very accurate.

Im using windows vista.
Not sure how to make my own scripts though, as for size and time they are flash files (.swf) and the time does't need to be that accurate just around 12:00am but no one will mind im sure if its a little off!
