Sub-Directory and Settings Problems

Sub-Directory and Settings Problems

There are two minor errors that I keep encountering when using the File Manager option for stand alone uploads.

The first one deals with the sub-directory. I would think that after typing a name in, that if the folder did not exist, that it would be automatically created. But I notice that the feature only works if I had previously created the folder and uploaded the folder.

My next issue comes with persistence of the settings for the directory. For some reason, the settings won't maintain what I originally set.

So, if I am in my CMS level folder - let's just call the folder "cms" arbitrarily, and then I insert an instance of file manager. When I do, I may choose a folder that is on root called userfiles. When I do this, it will first correctly put in the settings path "/userfiles".

But then if I need to edit the instance, I notice that the settings will change to just "userfiles" without the preceding slash. And now when I go to upload, it uploads to "/cms/userfiles" within the current root I am in. In other words, every time I edit an instance or add a new one, I have to explicitly change the settings to "/userfiles". My guess is that after setting it once, it was probably intended to hold that persistence until set again, correct?

Best regards,

Brian

Did you ever get this figured out? I'm have a very similar or same issue.

In site settings if I set the upload directory it's ignored and then even changes to something weird that I never entered in the first place.
For example if I navigate to the "files" directory I created in my "CMS" directory, I get this to start with. /CMS/files . I save and then upload the configuration.php file in the kfm directory.

Then I open the HTML editor settings for the form and I enter /editorimages under General>File-Upload>Sub-Directory . Save and upload page.

But when I use the form and upload an image it ignores my site settings and creates a directory at root /editorimages and the image is placed there.

Ok back to the "weird" changes that it makes in site settings. If I open sites settings back up, I see webassist/kfm/CMS/files sometimes. Once I had webassist/kfm/CMS/files/webassist/kfm/CMS/files/webassist/kfm/CMS/files or something like that. Didn't right it down but it was repeating the same thing.

I haven't messed with HTML editor's file manager for a long time and might be missing something.

The help and getting started guides don't have any examples of directories typed into their screenshots but I am pretty sure I have it right.

Thanks,
TroyD

I thought we had resolved this in the most recent build that should be available in your download center. If you already have that build there may be another issue you are running into.

I'll open a support incident so that we can look into this problem with you directly.

Sorry Ray, I should have mentioned those details. Yes, I have HTML Editor 3.0.1 installed. I first installed CSS Form Builder (beta for HTML Editor 3 compatibility), then editor 3.0.1.

I'll look for the support ticket.

Thanks,
