Viewing/Editing Images

Viewing/Editing Images

Just installed this product (and it was a breeze!, great job WA!) — all is working well with one exception: Page images are not viewable or directly editable in the CMS back end.

The powercms folder and the site images folder, are in the root directory. When you view the source code in the CMS, the original image paths are there ( "../images/myimage.jpg" ), but when you flip to WYSIWYG mode and try to edit the image, the following error message appears:

error: "../../../..//var/www/html/images//" could not be created

Where does the file exist where I can place the correct path? Thanks in advance!

Found this. Am I getting close?

In HTMLEditor > editor > filemanager > connectors > php > config.php (lines 143-148):

$Config['AllowedExtensions']['Image'] = array('bmp','gif','jpeg','jpg','png', 'pdf', 'doc', 'docx') ;
$Config['DeniedExtensions']['Image'] = array() ;
$Config['FileTypesPath']['Image'] = $Config['UserFilesPath'] . '' ;
$Config['FileTypesAbsolutePath']['Image']= ($Config['UserFilesAbsolutePath'] == '') ? '' : $Config['UserFilesAbsolutePath'] ;
$Config['QuickUploadPath']['Image'] = $Config['UserFilesPath'] ;
$Config['QuickUploadAbsolutePath']['Image']= $Config['UserFilesAbsolutePath'] ;

Not sure how to edit...

TIA again!
