Copy from URL - Browser Issues

Hi
Just wondered if anyone has tried using the "Copy from URL" feature with any success?

I have tried it in several browsers and found it seems to have different issues in different browsers.

Main concern is it does not work in IE8 and pretty sure it does not work in IE7. Tried it in Chrome, Firefox, Opera all had differernt issues.

I have taken a quick look on the KFM site as its there plugin and no luck a couple of people with the same issue but no workng solution.

I havent got time to be concerned about it just wondered if anyone had the issue and rectified it. As if you offer it in the Admin of your site to upload images etc would be nice to either have it work or be able to disable it.


Thanks

Mike

I think I must be missing something, I dont see any feature in the HTML Editor or PowerStore called Copy from URL. Can you send a screen shot so I can get an idea of where to look.

Hi Jason
Attached an image and here are the steps:

1. Open a page with HTML Editor on it
2. Select the IMAGE icon
3. First box it opens is IMAGE PROPERTIES
4. First TAB open is IMAGE INFO
5. Select URL ----> BROWSE SERVER
6. FILE MANAGER opens
7. Left hand side FILE UPLOAD select the drop down box and instead of FILE UPLOAD Select COPY from URL.

From there you will get errors that will stop it working in IE8 and also 7 I think.

In the other browsers ie FF/Opera/Chrome other problems occur.

Hope this helps below is SS.

OK, thanks for the direction, I hadn't ever noticed that option in the KFM.

In the /HTMLEditor/editor/plugins/kfm/j/file.js file find the following line:

if(filename.toString()!==filename)filename='';


and change it to:
if(filename!==filename)filename='';

Hi Jason
Tried that still doesnt work in IE and the latest Opera Browser forget it no chance. Not even the upload works on that one.

To be honest that plugin seems seriously flawed for modern browsers. It appears to have issues in ALL the latest ones.

Any other suggestions apart from disabling the advanced file manager completely?

Possibly disable the Copy from URL?

BTW it almost works in the latest firefox but then it asks you how you want to save it but gives you no option except for a [onevent] and then its a corrupt download :)

Thanks

changes to javascript are often not picked up right away unless you clear the browsers cache, Or do a hard refresh.

with the KFM File manager window open, try using ctrl+f5 to do a hard refresh, if that doesn't work, clear the browsers cache, then restart the browser and try again.

Opera is notorious for problems with javascript.


what is the URL your entering to copy from?

Hi
That was quick Jason.

OK tried CTRL+F5 about 100 times no luck so did it the delete temp files etc from IE options and you are correct it worked.

Thanks Jason.
