Pathing Issues

OK so i have everything setup and it all looks and works as intended BUT:

In WA_Globals.php

$WAGLOBAL_Root_URL = "" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Site_Name = "My Site Name" ;

$WAGLOBAL_localRoot = "/Mycms/"; //This is where I have uloaded the PowerCMS too
$WAGLOBAL_remoteRoot = "/Mycms/"; //This is where I have uloaded the PowerCMS too

//iRite Images upload settings
$WAGLOBAL_Images_Folder = "../images/"; //relative path to your images folder.
$WAGLOBAL_Swf_Folder = "../swf/"; //relative path to your swf folder.

So when I upload images to the server via the CMS they get uploaded to the /Mycms/ Directory rather than the images directory in the root path as i would have expected. Can you please let me know what the path should be .

The URL for the image shows the Absolute path and not even the /Mycms/ path where the image ends up. Altering the $WAGlobal_Images_Folder to absolute or any other makes no difference for what i can see.

Also when I hit the Insert button i get the error as attached

Lots of people are having success with powerCMS. I've worked with many that are using it live already.

There must be a configuration settings issue, but I don't quite understand the problem as you describe it. Do you have a sample URL I can look at?

The error on insert implies that you didn't fill out the form before pressing it.

Did this help? Tips are appreciated...


Hi Ray.

Tech support had looked into it for me. Seems if you go into Form Validator in DW while the page is open it reverts the validation trigers to form0 or the first form in the page. So reverting back to the original file as suggested by Tech support did the trick.

It didn't cross my mind that something so simple amy have broken the triggers,
