How to Upload Files and Images to Website Tonight
If you have files that you want people to be able to download (ex. Word documents, PDF’s, music, etc) then first you will need to upload the file(s) to Website Tonight. Website Tonight includes an easy-to-use file upload feature so that you do not need to FTP. The next step is to create a link to the file from one of your pages.

How to FTP a Website Template to Website Tonight
If you have full web pages that were designed outside of Website Tonight then you cannot FTP them and use Website Tonight to manage and edit the files. That means you cannot hire a web designer to build you a custom website, or purchase a web template somewhere online, and use Website Tonight to work on that website. The only exceptions are the templates for sale here on ProSiteTonight.com. All of the custom templates Pro Site Tonight sells are built exclusively for Website Tonight.

Web Designers – How to FTP a Custom Web Design
Website Tonight is not a standard website builder like FrontPage or Dreamweaver which allow you to modify any HTML file. Website Tonight is a template based CMS (content management system). The user starts by selecting a pre-designed template from within Website Tonight then additional HTML is dynamically generated as the user adds and edits content on the template they selected. The user modifies the site using a built-in point-and-click WYSIWYG (“What You See Is What You Get”, pronounced “Whiz-E-Wig”), but the WYSIWYG only supports Website Tonight templates.
Ultimately this means FTP access to Website Tonight is blocked, and your client cannot use Website Tonight to manage the web design you built for them. They will need to cancel Website Tonight, get a refund, and purchase standard hosting instead.
