I've got something strange here that I am not figuring out. I installed an instance of HTMLEditor with Advanced File Management. But it is confused about my Security Assist rules selected in the Global settings interface.

Here's the details. The is an insert page within a CMS created a long time ago using DA and SA. It's been secured using an Admin login rule and the page itself will deny access if you are not logged in. However, if I am logged in and try to upload a file using HTMLEditor and the fckeditor "Upload File" tab, it denies me and a error drops down saying that it is disabled in the config.php.

If I have it set to "Everyone" it works. And if I have it set to my "Administrator" rule it fails. But here's the weird part. If I have it set to "Administrator" only, but then I log out, and then click upload, it works. I did this by opening a new window and then logging out and then returning to the instance of the tabbed "Browse Server" window that was still open).

The HTMLEditor folder is in my root directory. In my case (/public_html/HTMLEditor/) and my insert page is in (/public_html/CMS/admin/insert.php)

The upload knows where the correct path is. So I am assuming it is something I am overlooking with my SA rules. Keep in mind, the rule I am using is the exact same rule that denies access to the page the editor is on, if not logged in.

By the way, this rule is a session that checks the global.php page where the admin username and password is located. So the HTMLEditor code might not know where to compare the username and password. Is that a possibility? Should I add the

<?php require_once( "../Globals/globals.php" ); ?>

to some page within the HTMLEditor folder?

I noticed that within the tables created by HTMLEditor, there is a parameters table with username "" and password "". Should I edit this?

Any thought?
