    When I leave the settings on automatic and "put file" it uploads in MacBinary, resulting in my pages appearing as nothing but code. Should I be using the "text" setting?

    Yes, choosing Text format for uploading HTML files should solve the problem.

    I'm surprised that Fetch would upload HTML files in MacBinary format. What version of Fetch are you running? Do the file names end in .html? What are the "Mode" and "Format" pop-up menus set to in the transfer window?

    Thanks,

    Version 4.0.2. The mode and format are both set to "automatic". I never had any problems before. I hadn't uploaded anything in afew months. Then everything I uploaded in the last few days got all messed up, even though I made only extremely minor changes to those pages. First it was uploading as just code (when I let the setting go automatic, like I'd always done before) and then when I switched to text the files are showing up as gigantic (though my design software says that they aren't).

    Okay, I remember your question in the "pages appear as code" topic. As I wrote there, it appears that the file you are uploading as your index.html page isn't an HTML file at all, but actually an application. That suggests that your disk might be corrupted. Fetch is uploading in MacBinary II format because that's what you'd want for an application file. The problem isn't that Fetch is choosing the wrong format, the problem is that the wrong file is being uploaded.
