FAQ's

I can't connect, what gives?

  1. Make sure you are using the most current version of Gusto. The latest version adds support for many more servers than the latter.
  2. Make sure you've selected the proper protocol, FTP is not the same as SFTP, and SFTP is not the same as FTPS!
  3. Try clearing out the "path" field in the project settings. If you're able to connect with this setting, it's likely that your previous path didn't exist or you don't have permission to access it.
  4. Verify your authentication credentials in the project settings.
  5. Still nothing? Contact us and we'll get back ASAP.

Does Gusto support SFTP?

Yes!

As of version 1.1, Gusto does support the SFTP protocol.


How do I import my public keys?

In order to use public-key authentication with SFTP, you will need to import your public key into Gusto. Gusto will then prompt you to select the action you would like to take with your imported document. Select "Import as Public Key". Your public key is now imported. Gusto will automatically use this imported key when you connect to your server. Your public key must be in id_rsa or id_dsa format.

Does Gusto support Dropbox?

Yes!

As of version 1.3, Gusto does support Dropbox integration.

In order to link your Dropbox account, you will need to:

  1. Ensure you have a working Dropbox app with an active account installed on your iPad
  2. Create a new project with an FTP account or edit an existing project. (Currently, you cannot create a Dropbox account without first creating an FTP account, even if you are just going to delete it right away. This will be fixed in a future update.)
  3. Delete the existing FTP account by selecting the red minus symbol next to it and then selecting the delete button that appears.
  4. Add a new connection account by selecting the green plus symbol that now appears next to the Connection field.
  5. Select 'Dropbox' from the list of options that appears.
  6. Once you have done this you can choose which linked Dropbox account you want to use with your project.

Can I import files and folders into Gusto? What about photos from my device?

In order to import:

  1. From your project list, press the plus("+") icon to display the project tools menu.
  2. Choose your source: iTunes or Photo Library
  3. Follow the directions given to finish importing into your project.

Because iOS does not have a concept of a file system, folders are exempt from importing but can be created within Gusto.


How do I select files?

Gusto is capable of selecting multiple files for the best workflow possible on the iPad. Selecting the small grey circle to the left of any folder or file will select it.

The selection context button(gear button at the bottom of the file browser) allows you to manipulate your selection.

Also in the Transfers Client, you can select multiple items and then use the upload/download buttons at the bottom of the screen.


Can I edit my website with visually instead of with code?

No.

Gusto is NOT a WYSIWYG editor. It is NOT a rich text style editor. It IS a code editor.

You will need to know the language you intend to use, HTML, Javascript, PHP, ASP, Coldfusion, etc.


Does Gusto work over 3G?

Definitely.


Can I create files from scratch?

Absolutely!

Unlike other iPad-based editors, Gusto can create files and folders, in other words... an entire site from scratch.


Where is the save button!?

Simply put, there isn't one.

Staying true to the iPad credo relies on Gusto maintaining a persistent project state; which means that at any given time, you can leave your project and when you return, it'll be as if you never left.


How does publishing work?

Gusto has a easy to use publishing feature that can be accessed from the "Transfers" icon within the project view.

The publish feature places the current document on the project server, relative to the initial path specified in your project settings.

Example:
Server: horseandtherook.com
Path: /public_html
Current document: /gusto/faq.php
Resulting path: ftp://horseandtherook.com/public_html/gusto/faq.php


How do I edit my Quick Keys?

You can edit the quick keys by opening the settings(gear icon), scrolling to the "Quick Keys" section, then adding or removing the desired keys.

The next time you are editing a document, the changes to your Quick Keys will be available. Please note that if you may have to scroll to see all of the Quick Keys.
