Setting the default image folder PowerCMS

When viewing the content placed in the page in the history of poswer CMS I don't see the images I have placed on the site in preview although they do show up in the site itself.

Fo I need to set a default image folder for site images as opposed to CMS images?

Thanks

Can you please explain a little bit more about the issue you are having. If you can send me some screen shots that would be helpful.

The images should show in the history page if they are showing up correctly in the front end pages, and you should be able to use any folder you specify in the globals file.

Thanks.

Dani,

here is what I mean. I cannot see the image I'm putting into the content via the CMS but is viewable in the site. A screen shot is attached of the CMS history where the image does not show up.

The issue is related to how the path is created. If you click the source button on the HTMLEditor after clicking the revert button, please copy and past the source of the image. I think looking at the source of the image will help us find the issue.

Also, are you seeing the image in the editor when you insert a new content or is it just in the history page?

I think I know what you mean:

Here is the code as I have it in the page before CMS,

<p><img src="images/AlWatts_blog.jpg" width="150" height="75" alt="Al Watts" style="border:1px solid #000;" /><br /><br />
<strong>Al Watts: Achieving goals</strong> Eight years ago, right before I became a father, I made a list of goals. we need more information for this spot.</p>

the CMS changes things drastically, see below:

<p><img style="border-bottom: #000 1px solid; border-left: #000 1px solid; border-top: #000 1px solid; border-right: #000 1px solid" alt="Al Watts" width="150" height="75" src="images/AlWatts_blog.jpg" /><br /><br /><strong>Al Watts: Achieving goals</strong> Eight years ago, right before I became a father, I made a list of goals. we need more information for this spot.</p>

It looks like the CMS is not formatting properly. It is breaking the inline style out into its variables and in doing so is moving the SRC statement.

Not sure if this is the problem but it should do this.

That is just how the HTMLEditor renders the css styles in the editor, but i think the issue is in the path that is in the CMS. The path should be a site relative:

/CMS/files/cms_files/VS.jpg or something like that.

Can you please tell me what you have in your globals file for the local or remote setting?

Also, do you get the same issue if you uploaded a new image in the HTMLEditor?

The local and remote settings are below:

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

//iRite Images upload settings
$WAGLOBAL_Images_Folder = "/MySiteDir/images/"; //relative path to your images folder.

The site structure locally is:

Site root directory
CMS (folder)
images (folder)
Site files

When I chose to upload a file, yes I get the same issue, I think you may be correct in that it is the path. When I open the file manager the view window does not populate with the site images from the images folder. I have tried various paths but haven't seemed to have gotten it right.
