Upload / File Management - Locations are wrong!

Upload / File Management - Locations are wrong!

I am having a couple of issues with the file upload and management on HTML edit during some tests.

Site Structure:

The site is in a subfolder of root - called none other than "test". All site files and folders are uploaded here, and I am leaving the root folder alone since a current site lives there. I then created a folder called "uploads" (test/uploads) and gave it 777 permissions.

HTML Edit Config

HTMLEdit is set to allow file uploads, and the directory is set to "uploads".

When advanced editing is turned off - this works fine. All images are going to "uploads" and all files are going to "uploads/files". GREAT!

When advanced editing it is turned on - it doesn't work right. The file browser now shows no images - but the files still work right. When I upload an image, it says it is successful, but no image appears in the file browser. HOWEVER - the image does appear in the HTMLEditor image dialog, and will insert appropriately. It appears, the image is being uploaded to a new directory in ROOT called "uploads". Why would images go to Root > uploads and files go where they are suppose to "root > test/uploads"?

Am I missing something. Will HTMLEditor not work properly when the site is actually in a subfolder?

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

I just ran a quick test using the same steps you provided, and the Advanced Images Upload worked correctly. The images are always being stored in the upload folder inside the 'test' folder.

The only thing that could be different here is where you have your DW set up. Do you have your site set up in the root or is your site set up in the root of the sub folder.
