Symlinks not working on SFTP connection

I added a SFTP connection to my server.  I was going through my directory structure, but the Textastic interface would not follow symlinks on my server.  It read them as files and tried to download them.  Since all of my web files are in a symlinked directory, this issue makes Textastic unusable for me.  I'd love it if this could be fixed soon!



It should work, but it depends a bit on how the server sends file listings.

Can you please enable the "Debug Log" setting in the connection's settings? You can edit those settings by tapping on the blue arrow on the right side of the connection. After that, please browse to the directory containing the symlinks and send me the resulting log file to support@textasticapp.com.
