Drop files into a folder with using an ftp client?
I seem to recall a URL syntax that would allow one to log in to a folder on one's website (using a browser) and drag files into it via ftp. Is this still possible, and if so what is the proper syntax? It is or was SOMETHING like (or maybe not...):

It depends on the browser. As far as I know, most browsers (IE and FF at least) don't support FTP uploading out-of-the-box, although they do support browsing and downloading from FTP servers. Windows Explorer does support uploads, and the syntax is as you described it, although I'm not sure about the ;type= part. There are extensions for Firefox that will add FTP uploading as well, I don't think there are any for IE.

With IE8, if you navigate to the FTP server, click on Page at the far right and select "Open FTP Site in Windows Explorer"... with IE6, I believe, it automatically opens as Windows Explorer.
