I'm looking to set up a couple of simple custom commands to allow users to easily upload images to a folder on a FTP server. Just for testing, I've tried implementing a simple remote command like "cd /this/directory", but the command appears as a greyed-out button after I add it.

<invalid hyperlink removed by admin>

<invalid hyperlink removed by admin>

What could be getting in the way of allowing this command to execute? I noticed a similar post (<invalid hyperlink removed by admin>) where the user mentioned that he had to use SFTP instead of FTP. Is this a cause?

Thank you in advance for any assistance!

Custom commands are supported with SCP (and indirectly with SFTP) only.
Anyway, you cannot implement custom command for upload.
