images not showing in PowerCMS edit mode

i have installed PowerCMS from Design Extender. Installed succesfully. When i tried to edit pages, in edit mode images not displayed. What do i need to check to show images on edit mode.

When i open page site shows all images fine.

You probably just need to update your images to use site root relative paths.

Since the edit mode is shown on a page in the admin_cms folder, it won't find images that use a relative path...

for instance if you have content on your home page with <img src="images/test.jpg">

in the admin folder it wouldn't find the image, because that would map to: admin_cms/images/test.jpg

However if your original image used: <img src="/images/test.jpg"> then it could display from both locations.

if i change path in edit mode to /aw/images/test.jpg
it shows image on edit mode. when i reload content now it is showing image with /aw/ but not showing others originally listed as /images/test.jpg.

all images needs to include the full path in front of the image name:
/aw/images/

This is the site relative path to the images folder that will show the images correctly on any page in your site.
