Image location with CMS 102?

Image location with CMS 102?

Hi folks

I have sucessfully uploaded CMS102 and been able to log in create, edit and or delete elements of my new page. I am extremley please with the ease of use and help instructions for the end user.

I have yet to adjust the elements of the HTML editor in order to reduce icons presented to client, but that for another day.

It must be a case of "Not being able to see the wood from trees" as far as image upload location, setting image variables in the Golbals file etc.

I am convinced that all the settings in the various files have been set correctly, else I would not have online access to CMS 102 on the web.

Having checked this forum, I have seen reference to setting an image file location, but I assume this is for CMS 100 or CMS 101 as CMS 10-2 makes no reference to it.

This is most likely where I cant see the wood......however for additional information I have include the following checks already carried out:

I have checked permissions on the /files/cms_files/ folder and have sucessfully uploaded images to it via my FTP application.

However when I click the "Insert/Edit Image" icon I am taken to the image properties window and I can click on the "Upload" tab and having browsed the picture files on my PC, chose and image and upload,. All appears to work and when I then click on the "Image Info" tab, browse to the /files/cms_files/ folder and select that image.

This is where the fun starts
1: the URL is then populated with a location minus the cms_files element and shows as " The preveiw pane does not show an image, just a square box with red cross.
2:If I manually adjust the URL and include missing parameters it still shows box with red cross.
3:When I check the server, the image just uploaded to /files/cms_files/ it is not there or any other location on the server!
4:If I choose an image that I have manually uploaded via my FTP program, it displays correctly in the preveiw pane and gets saved and correctly shows to my page on the web.

Here is a link to the online page for ref: diary.php

Any thoughts welcomed to how to resolve the mystery image upoad location.
