image not displayed, only placeholder

image not displayed, only placeholder

I've got the html editor working for image upload, in that;
1) You can upload an image
2) The image thumbnail is then displayed in the file manager
4) the image is displayed on the 'public' page

Step 3 is the important missing thing! Having gone to insert the image, it then isn't displayed in the html editor field, only the image placeholder is displayed. I guess this is down to the path somewhere - but I don't want to ruin the rest of the setup, so would appreciate being pointed in the right direction.

You are correct. This is related to the path. the path needs to be site relative. Meaning it needs to start with / which is the root of your site and then any sub folders.

Can you tell me what path you are seeing in the HTMLEditor and also what is the url of the page that has the HTMLEditor applied to it.

Also, are you using Advanced File Management of just File Management.

Hi Dani

The two files that appear to contain the folder are config.php and configuation.php, (within different folders)

I changed them both from up/ to /up/ and found that when I uploaded an image, the path was being displayed as //up/image.jpg

So I looked at the two pages, and config.php contains the following code;

global $Config ;
$WA_EditorLocalRoot = '/';
$WA_EditorRemoteRoot = '/';
$WA_curURL = strtolower((isset($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]))?$_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]:"");
$EditorAssumedRoot = $WA_EditorRemoteRoot;
if ((strpos($WA_curURL,strtolower($WA_EditorLocalRoot)) !== false && strpos($WA_curURL,strtolower($WA_EditorLocalRoot)) == 0) && (strlen($WA_EditorLocalRoot) >= strlen($WA_EditorRemoteRoot) || strpos($WA_curURL,strtolower($WA_EditorLocalRoot)) === 0)) {
$EditorAssumedRoot = $WA_EditorLocalRoot;

// SECURITY: You must explicitly enable this "connector". (Set it to "true").
// WARNING: don't just set "$Config['Enabled'] = true ;", you must be sure that only
// authenticated users can access this file or use some kind of session checking.
$Config['Enabled'] = (WA_Auth_RulePasses("Logged in to users"));

// Path to user files relative to the document root.
$Config['UserFilesPath'] = 'up/';
$Config['UserFilesPath'] = $EditorAssumedRoot.$Config['UserFilesPath'];
I assumed that the line $WA_EditorRemoteRoot = '/'; was causing the //, so you will see from this I have removed the trailing '/' before up/

The other file, configuration.php doesn't have any reference to $WA_EditorRemoteRoot = '/'; so I have left it as /up/

Now, previously inserted images are displayed in the editor area and if I upload an image, everything is displayed properly.

However, if I go to 'browse server' and insert an image that has previously been uploaed, I get the //up path and the image is not displayed until I remove the /

Hope that's clearer than it sounds - I'm not a coder!

BTW - using advanced file management.

From what you are describing, your config.php file should have these settings:

$WA_EditorRemoteRoot = '/';


$Config['UserFilesPath'] = 'up/';

and your configuration.php should have these settings:

$WA_EditorRemoteRoot = '/test/';


$kfm_userfiles_output = 'up/';

if you are still having issues, please attach your config.php and configuration.php files to further look at the issue.
