Choose Image - Slashes are incorrect in path

Choose Image - Slashes are incorrect in path

This is happening with KFM whenever I use KFM to create sub-folders.

If I insert an image that is deeper in a path, I get both forward and reverse slashes, and the image link becomes broken until I fix them.

EG:
/resources/pages/media/head_2.jpg (< this is correct)
/resources/pages/media\test\2/head_2.jpg (< you can see what this is doing)

This happens whenever I use a folder created with KFM. If the structure is already in place on the server (/resources/pages/media) then it is fine.

Any suggestions? A setting in KFM maybe?

I saw the same thing on a windows machine. I am currently assuming when I upload to a unix host, that won't happen, but it should be consistent.

Well I figured out a few things. I was seeing a missing slash between the userfiles directory and the first sub-directory. The source file has a user files path of ../../files, and I still have a problem that the site definition for the site would not let me browse for a directory, so I entered it in the same fashion as the files listing, /assets (notice I had to insert a leading forward slash or end up with /assets/assets). The correct listing should be /assets/. That causes the slash to be included between assets and events in my example above. See Troubleshooting

The problem with the wrong slashes occurs when there is more than one sub-directory of depth below the user files. It is appending the directory path to the user files directory, adding a / and then the file name. Therefore, one sub-directory is fine (/assets/events/file.jpg), but two or more sub-directories deep is not (/assets/events\event\sponsors/file.jpg.

Editing the file /webassist/kfm/plugins/return_url/plugin.js can patch the issue. I don't think it is the best fix because KFM is still reporting the bad slashes in the file properties, so it doesn't get to the root of the issue, but it does resolve the issue for CKEditor.

Lines 3 & 4 need to add url=url.replace(/\\/g,'/'); so it reads like this:

x_kfm_getFileUrls(selectedFiles,function(urls){var caption='',url='';if(files.length==1&&File_getInstance(files[0]).width){url=urls[0].replace(/([^:]\/)\//g,'$1');url=url.replace(/^\/\//,'');url=url.replace(/\\/g,'/');caption=File_getInstance(files[0]).caption;}
else{if(files.length==1)url=urls[0].replace(/\\/g,'/');else url='"'+urls.join('","')+'"';}



That fixes the urls being fed to CKEditor. It might be necessary to add a similar replace for the last else condition, but I could not figure out what that statement is for. This works for images and links.

NEO314: I never came back to this thread because Ray had set me up with a hack that was getting the job done. BUT - your solutions is much better, and only requires the one page to be edited (the .js file mentioned).

I just tested it and it works great. Thanks for posting this.

I'm glad it helped. I would sure like to know what that last else condition is for...

Image Path Incorrect

I've add " $kfm_userfiles_output = rel2abs($kfm_userfiles_address,dirname(__FILE__)). "/"; " to line 27 in the configuration.php file to resolve a missing slash in the image path (per a solution provided by one of your tech reps).

Works fine in three of my websites, however, now in my latest web, I get: "D:/Hosting/5230337/html/FileUploads/Images/gift_giving.jpg" in the image path. If I manually remove everything to the left of "/FileUplods/..." the image displays. How do I correct so the path does not add the "D:/Hosting/5230337/html" to the path?

You need to remove document root from __FILE__. It should be something like:

rel2abs(str_replace($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'],"",$kfm_userfiles_address,dirname(__FILE__))). "/"; "

Remove Document Root...

I've modified the line to:
$kfm_userfiles_output = rel2abs(str_replace($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'],"",$kfm_userfiles_address,dirname(__FILE__))). "/";

but now the server host reports this error:

Warning: Missing argument 2 for rel2abs(), called in D:\Hosting\5230337\html\webassist\kfm\configuration.php on line 29 and defined in D:\Hosting\5230337\html\webassist\kfm\library.php on line 71

Am I missing something in the syntax? (I am not a programmer)
