I suppose I should be submitting bugzilla reports. But just incase anyone is confused by this, then the Web Management ---> backup utility:

This:

Backup Destination: remove FTP Server (Passive mode transfer)

Should be:

Backup Destination: REMOTE FTP Server (Passive mode transfer)

How about computer programmers using any of the bizillion spell-checkers that seem to be built into everything these days?

I guess this is like the cobbler's children who wore no shoes.

I would rather have the typo in a display label, than the code.......

A spellchecker wouldn't catch that as a spelling error.

You can't spellcheck code. :)

Yes, and granted the recent typo I pointed out was not really a misspelling, but rather just a misplaced word (that made the backup utility sound like it was doing the exact opposite of what was intended.)

Still however, anyone coding a commercial product interface should maintain a certain level of quality control by checking over the released version of the product for visible text errors. cPanel techs (or management) should CERTAINLY have caught errors like this before the "x" version of their product is released years later!

Sorry but this sticks in my craw. Here we are doing our damndest to run a tight, high quality professional ship, yet we hand over a control panel to our customers that is full of really silly typos!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Minor or not in the minds of the cPanel coders who are otherwise doing an excellent job, it's a bad reflection on our business that could easily be resolved with just a few minutes of proofreading. Sheesh! There's really no excuse.
