Stand-alone file manager questions

A couple questions using the stand-alone file manager:

After creating the Insert page using DataAssist, I changed the text field named "filename" to a file field, then selected it and inserted the File Manager. First question: it lists the field name as "file1" - should I keep that or change to mine, filename? If I keep it, I realize I'll need to change the Insert SB.

Seems to insert okay, but when I try to preview, there is no folder icon showing. When I look at the code, I see a style set to visibility:hidden. Is this correct?

Here's the inserted HTML:

<input type="text" value="" id="file1" name="file1" readonly style="float:left;"/>
<div style="float:left;"><img src="../webassist/kfm/themes/webassist_v2/spacer.gif" id="htmleditor_image_1" align="top" /></div>
<img src="../webassist/kfm/themes/webassist_v2/icon_folder.png" width="20" height="18" id="htmleditor_browse_1" name="{dds:'../', startup_folder:'slideShow_front', show_sidebar:false, width:600, height:400}" style="vertical-align:bottom; padding-bottom:2px; visibility: hidden;" /> </div>



Does this look right?

Thanks - Joe

You should rename your file field to match what you are using in the InsertSB, or update the InsertSB...

The browse is hidden at first because it is dynamically positioned based on the size of the image added (if any). It should be hidden at first, but javascript should run to position it and then display it. It is hidden at first so that you don't see it jump as the page loads and the script runs. If it doesn't show, then the javascript isn't running properly.

If you can put up a sample page where I can look at it I can debug and let you know why it isn't showing.

Thanks Ray.

Here's the URL: banners_Insert.php
I temporarily disabled the SecurityAssist code.

I've attached a zip of the page as well.

I'm thinking it must be a conflict with another script you have on the page.

The file upload code (located at: ../webassist/kfm/filebrowse.js)

Uses a function called "init()"

one possibility is that there is another function on your page that uses that same name and it is getting overwritten.

You might try a find/replace in that .js file to replace "init(" with "fm_init" to ensure it is unique.

Another likely cause (actually probably more likely) is that the onload event is getting overwritten by other functionality on your page.

The file upload .js file uses this to call the init function onload of the page:
window.onload = init;

It looks like you may have a few other scripts running onload that may overwrite that onload event.

You could try adding the init call to the bottom of your page instead of the onload event, probably right above the </body> tag like:

<script>
init();
</script>
</body>

You may want to try this first and if that doesn't work try renaming the function. One or the other (or both) I imagine will fix it.

You were right. The code was from a legacy page I inherited and I missed that onLoad event during my scrubbing. When I removed it, I got the folder image. Now, I'm getting the pop-up window but with a 404. I admit I'm a little confused about the file manager settings. Does the upload directory specified in the File Manager tab have to be in the same folder as the current page or a subfolder within that folder? In other words, here's my directory structure:
/
/admin
/admin/testPhotos

So, what should I put in the Upload Directory field under the File Manager tab? "admin", "/admin" or should it just be blank?

That setting isn't your problem.

Make sure to upload the "webassist/kfm" folder. The error implies it hasn't been uploaded.
