HTMl Editor and Advanced file manager security

Hi,

I have to add the editor to a page that already exists and is secured behind a login system.

If I already have security in place, is there anyway for me to use the advanced file manager tool without having to rebuild my login and security using SecurityAssist?

As for the uploads folder... is this places behind my admin area? or where it can be accessed by all users?

Thanks in advance.

If you have directory level security enabled for your site then you should be ok to use the everyone setting for the security of the advanced file manager. To ensure that your files are secure though you should make sure they are all within the secure directory.

You should put the upload folder in a place where it will be accessible to anyone that is using the advanced file management features. If only authenticated users can upload it should be ok to have this folder in the root of your site.

the upload folder

Thank you Eric... one more question... if the upload folder is in a secure area... can the images stored there still show up on the public non secured pages?

This would probably depend on how you have security setup for this directory, from my thinking you should not be able to see images from the secured directory on the non secured pages. You should be able to do a quick test of this though by uploading an image to the secure directory then create an <img tag on a non secured page and reference the image. Whatever result you see on this test page should match what you see on with the HTML editor pages if you have the images in the secure part of the site.
