Image paths break when drag-n-dropped in WYSIWYG editor

Image paths break when drag-n-dropped in WYSIWYG editor

I'm using PowerCMS 2.0 and am experiencing a particular "bug" when manipulating images with the WYSIWYG editor.

For example, I can upload an image and insert it into the page. The image looks great and displays perfectly in the editor and on the website. At this point, the image path is appropriately set to ("/powercms/files/......."). No problems here.

However, whenever I use the editor to drag-n-drop the image to a different position on the page, it changes the image path to "../../files/............". While this image path still displays the images in the editor, it causes them to break on the website itself.

As a developer, I can deal with this (it's annoying, but I understand how to deal with it), but it's my end-user customers that I'm worried about. Can this be fixed??

I was able to reproduce the issue you are having. And it seems that is something that the HTMLEditor is doing where it is changing site relatives urls to document relatives.

I have logged a bug in our bug base and if it is something we can fix, we will include the fix in our next dot release or create a known issue for it.
