Enter custom command

Is there a way to execute custom command on smart FTP ?

Like on filezilla (Server > Enter custom command)


menu: View->Toolsbars->Command Line

Ok, but..

This option only appear when my smartftp language is set to "english".
When smartftp is set to my default windows language (french), this option does not appear in the menu.

And even if i checked it when smartftp is in english, if i restart it in french, the command line bar disappear.

Post the system information from the menu: Help->About System Information dialog.

I'm unable to reproduce the problem. This is what I did:
1. Installed French addon
2. Started SmartFTP
3. Enabled the command line in the View menu

Try to reset the registry keys:

Then start SmartFTP, select French, restart. And then enable the command line.

I reset registry keys but now, Command line disappears from both french and english
I tried to update smartftp to the latest version. But the problem still be...


Are you using the FTP/FTPS protocol? The command line is only available for these protocols.

Yes it's FTP protocol.

Today, Command line option is back in english and french.
Very strange...

I think i found what happen.

Maybe the focused window was my local folder on the right.
When the focus is on the local folder windows, the option doesn't appear.

(On the picture in the title bar, we can see 'Favorites' witch is my local window focused in smartftp)


Today, I needed to enter a custom command on my FTP in order to "unlock" a website blocked by my host :


When I enter it with smartFTP :
[16:37:04] SITE CHMOD 705 /
[16:37:04] 200 Permissions changed on /
But my website still blocked

When I enter it with Filezilla :
Command: SITE CHMOD 705 /
Response: 200 Permissions changed on /
website is now available

Why ?

I will ask my crystal ball and get back to you.

I juste discover the solution.

A space is needed after the /
