file manager

I recently deleted all my extensions and just installed the main new extensions Design Extender, Databridge and ecart. I have a site built with dataassist and my insert and update pages have the file manager on them. I have a resolved ticket in the support history where the icons were not visible, and another where the file manager would not browse. The browse issue was resolved by making sure file management was enabled AND replacing the browse js file. I have another ticket where the folders were not visible at all and that was resolved with a div tag issue. Now I am on a very similar page on another site, (almost identical page) I am again having issues with the file manager folders not appearing.
1) Before I reinstalled the extensions the file manager was under webassist > forms along with the html editor. Now what I am suppose to use to upload a single file? and how do I ensure it follows the protocal of adding the image to userfiles/226 where 226 is the member id. For my forms that quit working do I replace the existing file folder with file manipulation or ??. The process was very simple and straight forward and now I have searched the forms and spent 4 hours trying to figure this out and found a post where another user had issues with an update form, however the resolution seemed much more complicated. Please advise of the proper procedure to add the ability to upload an image to an existing dataassist insert and update page and clarify if the file browse is replacing the file manager or if both are still used... As you can see I am confused. Thanks,

the file manager is still available. It is under the insert toolbar.

Go to Window -> Insert to open the insert toolbar. In the insert toolbar, select WebAssist then the File manager icon.


you can use either the file manager or file manipulation - file upload for what you are asking about.

The File manager offers a way of browsing files that are already on the server for selection or for uploading.

the file upload behavior only allows for uploading.

which to use really depends on the feature set you wish to offer the website user.

The file manager is not visible for me

The file manager is not visible for me under insert. I have design extender, ecart and Databridge installed and available in my extensions. (screen shot of that as well). I created a screen shot and saved it as a PDF, however the forum does not allow my pdf - too large. I have had this issue many times. Do you think you could allow a little larger attachments so we could send PDF's with screen shots? My live site is disfunctional because the feature is not visible. I can see it in dreamweaver and have tried many things with no luck.

you can compress the pdf to a zip file to attach it.


See the attached screen shot for locating the file manager under the Insert Panel

that is the insert menu, not the insert panel I was directing you to.

go to Window -> Insert to open the insert panel.

in the insert panel, select WebAssist form the selector to find the File Manager insert button.

refer to the screen shot from my previous post.
