SOLVED: File Manager User Files Problem

The user directory needs to be specified as /upload not upload. When I first implemented it, the browse button would not return a value (I select a directory, but the interface still showed no directory in the box), so I typed upload in. When I changed it to /upload everything is fine.

I don't know if the browse button failing is a common issue, but FYI I am using CS3.

  I upgraded to HTMLEditor 3 today and I am doing some testing.

The problem I am having is that if I enable folders, I am getting a view of all the web site folders starting at the document root.

My user file is set to "upload"

In kfm/configuration.php, I find that userfiles are set as follows:

$kfm_userfiles_address = '../..';
but when I change it to:

$kfm_userfiles_address = '../../upload';
I get a subfolder created when kfm starts up so it comes out as /upload/upload. The top directory is upload and displayed just as /, but I can create a subdirectory there, so the user could create new directories in the document root is I use an upload folder of /upload.
