Problem with links and images

Hi again,

I'm having another problem with PowerCMS 2.

For reference, I think my problems stem from the fact that I installed PowerCMS into a folder within the root folder, rather than in the root itself, e.g. /cms/ instead of just /

I say this due to a lot of prior experience with over 20 other Webassist products that I own that have given me grief when I tried to put the support files anywhere other than the root.

I also say this because the problem I'm encountering is with browsing for images or browsing for files. In both instances, PowerCMS is only looking within the /cms/ folder and won't let me browse above that folder.

I've searched the forum and have found similar problems from other users, but unfortunately, they typically end with a suggestion to continue the issue in a support ticket rather than in the forum. Or they reference changes to the WA_Globals.php file for the previous version of PowerCMS (I'm using version 2, not 1).

As a result, there are no solutions publicly available for me.

Anyway, my problem is:

In the editing interface, if I click the "browse server" button in either the "image" or "link" tools, I am faced with a file navigator window that only shows me files within the /cms/ folder.

Also, if I try changing the path to the "image upload folder" on the settings tab, PowerCMS corrupts my change by prepending what it imagines the path should be, so for example:

If I try to change "/home/wedgem5/public_html/cms/" to "/home/wedgem5/public_html/images/" and then click save, PowerCMS overwrites my change and makes it "/home/wedgem5/public_html/cms//home/wedgem5/public_html/images/"

So, anyone have any ideas how to solve this problem?

Please keep in mind that I'm using PowerCMS 2, not 1, which means my WA_Globals.php file doesn't have the same configurability that the previous version did.

Looking forward to some help with this.
