linking to a file will not work correctly

When I use the HTML Editor. I will go to insert a link. Click the browse server feature. When I upload or choose a file it returns the wrong link path. It is inserting a extra step in the file path. I cannot figure out where exactly it is coming from. Here is the page with the file path after I select the file.

The link should just be: /elements/uploadFiles/newsletters/Final Oahe Fall 2010.pdf

But is showing up as: /masc/elements/uploadFiles/newsletters/Final Oahe Fall 2010.pdf

On my testing server which is on my local PC it shows up like this: /Oahe FCU/elements/uploadFiles/applicaions/online Application.pdf

Any insight on this would be most helpful. Thanks.

this depends on how you have your site setup. Is the root of your site at the masc or the elements folder. It seems that you would want your site to be set up at the root of the elements folder. If you want to change the link manually, you can browse to the htmleditor/editor/filemanager/connectors/php/config.php and change line 26 and 27 to not have the masc folder.

The root of the folder is "oahe"

I did check that. That is why I am so confused. I will look in the file you mentioned and change the masc part.

if the elements folder is at root of your site, then i would expect the path start with /elements.

Still is not working

I have made the change to the editor. It is doing this in every site I create and use this now. I have changed the file to elements and have even tried to remove it. I am not sure why this is happening. Please help.

What do you have as your $kfm_userfiles_address in your HTMLEditor/editor/plugins/kfm/configuration.php file (around line 51)?
