Upload and Linking to files PowerCMS 2.1.1

I am having a problem linking to files using the ckeditor. I am hosting the website using a sub-directory in my primary hosting account. The sub-directory is "/_domains/kathleensmiithphotography".

Uploads seem to be working fine, but the when I select a file using "Browse Server" it always adds "/_domains/kathleensmithphotography" to the beginning of my path. This path goes back to the root of my main hosting account and the path that is created ("/_domains/kathleensmithphotography/pageAdmin/files/1.jpg") does not work. If I edit the path to its relative form, "/pageAdmin/files/1.jpg" the image will display properly.

How do I prevent the editor from always adding this path prefix?

Another question about uploads:
How do I control the file types that are allowed for an upload?

here is an updated cop of the webassist/framework/library.php page that should correct the problem.




to control the allowed file types for uplaod, edit the webassist/kfm/initialize.php file.

the following line can be used to add banned extensions:
$kfm->defaultSetting('banned_upload_extensions',array());


for example, ban png and PDF files:
$kfm->defaultSetting('banned_upload_extensions',array('png','pdf'));

The 'banned_upload_extensions' array was exactly what I was looking for and worked great, thank you.

The link address when I select an item using "Browse Server", however, is still the same. I have attached a screen capture with the extra path highlighted. The upload folder relative to the website root is "pageAdmin/files". "pageAdmin" is the powerCMS folder. When I truncate the path in the ckeditor to "/pageAdmin/files/1.jpg" it works fine.

Path issue PowerCMS

Was there a fix for this problem. I'm having the same issue. File uploads are trying to point to the root of the server instead of the root of my site.

I have 2 sites that I'm working on that have this issue. Different hosting providers, but both shared accounts.
