How do you avoid timeouts with a big site?

My FP 2002 web site is pretty big, and I have had chronic problems with
timeouts when trying to publish. I no longer can perform live updates
either. Extensions on host are okay.

There must be some tricks to avoiding timeouts, but for the life of me I
can't figure out what they are. FP is set to publish only changed
pages, I deleted a lot of images or have images marked as "don't
publish," and I've converted some pages/topics to sub webs.

I am aware of the 1 MB issue. I don't understand how people with large
sites can actually publish.

Anybody have any trips, tricks, techniques regarding this issue?

Hi Barb,

I also have a problem with timeouts, as I travel and am often in areas with
poor connections. I ftp with Cute FTP. It can work through the timeouts, but
you won't have the advantages of publishing with FP. I don't use any
special FP features anyway, so it's no problem for me.

But there are some places where nothing will work.

If your host supports subwebs, divide the web into subwebs, each
subweb containing all the files for one distinct topic. When editing
or publishing only the files in the subweb are involved.

in the left window you can select smaller batches of files to transfer. For
example, load the themes folder, when it's done load the html pages, when
that's done upload the images etc.
Use the little blue arrows instead of the "publish" button

Avoid using the Select Publishing feature as the it doesn't update the hidden FP index files nor
does it update reference to images and other external item to a page.

Tom, Katwoman, and others; finally success! Published a 1 kb test page
by right clicking on the page/file name and using the "Publish Selected
Files" command.

Thanks to everyone or I would be still sitting here trying to publish!

Thanks all!

Keep in mind that only the actual page/file is uploaded, not any images and any changes to themes,
shared borders, Includes page or the navigation structure will not reflect any changes when you use
Selective Publishing.
