admin site all screw up

admin site all screw up

On the admin site - content management - for my client, it is all screw up. First, none of the images are there. When you move mouse on any of the menu choices, the url path is not correct.

For example, "http://www.airbornavionics.com/airborneavionics3/admin/activity.php" is a path that keeps showing. It doesn't work because the "airborneavionics3" should not be there. And I don't know how to fix it. With the main site, I went into CSSMenuwriter folder for content/home menu.php and took out that "airborneavionics3" and left it at( $WA_localRoot = "/" and $WA_remoteRoot = "/" ) and the site works fine. But the menu.php for the admin pages doesn't have that.

It has the following:
$WA_localRoot = "" . $WAGLOBAL_pcms_remote_root . "";
$WA_remoteRoot = "" . $WAGLOBAL_pcms_remote_root . "";

No matter what I do (adding "/" between the ""'s), it will not work. Any suggestions?

I attached the file in question.

You are probably getting this value from the database when SiteSculptor generated all of the pages. You should take a look at your db and look at the wa_settings table where you can adjust these URLs, the setting is PCMS Remote Root. This should get the menu working for you.

Yep...that worked

Thanks, Eric...that did the trick. I can access all the pages on content management site. Now if the pictures will download, I will be happy. The pictures I am talking about are the buttons, etc. Not too critical, I guess. Any ideas? IF not, that is okay...Thanks for your solution.

On the admin pages you can highlight an area where the image should be and view the source. This should let you see what the source of the image is set to. The images paths should start with ../ in the admin area. The images are located in the images directory in the root of the site. If you have any further trouble with this post back with the values that are being used for the current images so we can find out what is wrong.
