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 "http:mydomain.com/files/cms_files/. 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.

Where do you have the CMS files in your site? Are they at the root or are they in a sub folder? And also could you tell me what setting you have set for in your global file.

Hi Dani

The CMS files are in the root of of my sub domain, why sub domain??

I have the Contact Form Solution Pack working perfectly on my main site guyedwardes.com

I set up a sub domain as suggested by Eric Mittman for Power CMS to avoid potential conflics with WA_Globals.php in each offering. See the last entry on this question, showthread.php?t=9748 I hope I understood his response correctly.

This sub domain is diary.php

My settings in the CMS102 WA_Global.php file are as follows:


$WAGLOBAL_Site_Name = "Guy Edwardes Diary" ;

$WAGLOBAL_localRoot = "http://localhost/CMS2/"; //relative path to your PowerCMS files on your local testing server.

$WAGLOBAL_remoteRoot = "http://diary.guyedwardes.com/"; //relative path to your PowerCMS files on your remote server.

Should I have inserted HTML editor instance into this page somewhere? Several other questions have mentioned this, but I have not seen anyhing in the CMS102 help pdf's, so as yet done nothing about this.

Having Same Issue

Receive cannot Upload receive the following error:

Sorry, can't map "UserFilesPath" to a physical path. You must set the "UserFilesAbsolutePath" value in "editor/filemanager/connectors/php/config.php".

My WA_Global is as follows:

<?php
$WAGLOBAL_Root_URL = "http://74.53.103.194/~wwwspec/cms/" ; //Absolute path to your site folder.
$WAGLOBAL_Site_Name = "CMS" ;

$WAGLOBAL_localRoot = "/"; //relative path to your PowerCMS files on your local testing server.
$WAGLOBAL_remoteRoot = "/cms/"; //relative path to your PowerCMS files on your remote server.

//iRite Images upload settings
$WAGLOBAL_Images_Folder = "files/cms_files/"; //relative path to your images folder.
$WAGLOBAL_Swf_Folder = "swf/"; //relative path to your swf folder.

Also need to find out if CKEditor can be used instead of FCKEditor with PowerCMS?

Really need to get this matter resolved asap. Hard to hand off to clients when they can't even upload an image, etc.

From the WA_Globas settings, it look like you are using PowerCMS 1.0.0, we have released a dot relesae that might fixes your issue (PowerCMS 1.0.2). You won't have to update the database, you will just neeed to overwrite your files.

Dani that is what I installed CMS102.zip. Correct WA_Global file is on the server. When I attempt to browse to the server to select an image and insert an image off the server. I can't see the image in the FCKEditor?? How is the client going to know if I can't even insert the image and see it in the editor??

Support:

I still cannot get the File Upload to work and cannot see any images in the browser window within FCKeditor?


This is the error I receive when I try to Upload a file to the server within the editor:
Sorry, can't map "UserFilesPath" to a physical path. You must set the "UserFilesAbsolutePath" value in "editor/filemanager/connectors/php/config.php".

and when I attempt to browse the files on the server and select an image it does not show up in the browser window?


Please I really need to resolve this matter asap.

Best,
Renee'

I have opened a support ticket to further assist you:

It seems that the issue is in this setting:

$WAGLOBAL_remoteRoot = "http://diary.guyedwardes.com/";

instead try using:

$WAGLOBAL_remoteRoot = "/";

or

$WAGLOBAL_remoteRoot = "/<sub folder>/"; if the subdomain is pointing to a sub folder.

Let me know if this solves your issue.
