Power CMS Frustraction

Hi, I am having multiple issues with PowerCMS and would appreciate any help that I can get. I designed a website the way that I normally would for a client after decided to use the powerCMS for my client to be able to edit their website with. I have my own files, image folder and css file created.

1. Set Up Problems
a)My SQL Database: I don't have a connections folder which means I also don't have the localhost.php file. So my database isn't able to communicate

b)I can't figure out how to find my images

c)How do I use my own css file

2. Design: I am very confused, I thought I could just copy and paste my pages into the powerCMS program and have them work. After reading the startup guide I see that it says I have to make my own pages, put them into the cms, then get code and put that on the pages that I made in DW?

I'm sorry, I know this is a lot of questions but I haven't been able to find one thing to work properly (besides the installation)

Thank you very much for all of the help, I need it!

Ok, I have been able to figure out mostly everything. My last big question is how do I properly link to my image folder so that they show up in the WYSIWYG editor.

same issue, plus some

The HTML editor doesn't seem to be connected to any image folder. It will allow me to upload an image but won't show it in the browse server window and when I try to upload the same image again it says the file already exists.

Also, every time I click on the source button in the HTML editor or click update to update a page in Power CMS it adds a paragraph tag <p>&nbsp;</p> before and after an unordered list at the top of my editable area making the CMS useless. Weird.

Also, I can't edit the Power CMS editable area in Dreamweaver. I get an error that PCMS_Edit_ContentID_<![CDATA[1]]>_Temp.php was not found. It's pointing to my site root and that file is definitely not there.

Also, Power CMS was quick to replace my logo it with it's own. Why does it have to fill my root image folder with it's images. Can't it save them all into it's own folder?


Thanks in advance for your help.
