    Folder actions?
    Does anyone know what folder actions are? I've looked in the help viewer, but couldn't find anything. Thanks.

    I have not heard of folder actions. Maybe there is another name for it.

    Nope it's called folder actions, you can basically set an actionscript to run whenever you do something with said folder. Say for example you created an ftp script that uploads to your server, so you add that folder action to the folder and whenever you throw a file into that folder it automatically uploads it to your server. There are many things you can do with folder actions, just do a search on google and you'll probably find lots of scripts people have written the last couple of years.
