How to navigate to files in ckeditor?

When I try to edit a link in the html editor of PowerCMS by clicking the "Search Server" button I'm directed to the files-folder in the file manager - the folder where by default the new uploaded pictures are.

Thats good if I want change or add pictures but if I want to edit a link I can't figure out how this works. How can I navigate in the Directories to the file I want the link to show to?

Thanks for any help on this!

The File manager will not go to files or folders bellow the upload folder you set.

if you want to be able to browse to files in your entire site, you will need to set the upload folder to the site root.

In the HTML Editor instance, you can edit the preset, and on the General Tab, in the file upload section select the Show Directories in file manager option, this will allow you to browse to other directories, when you wish to upload a file or image, you can browse to the desired target directory before uploading.

Thank you, Jason!

I don't know where to look for the "HTML Editor instance" and the "General Tab, in the file upload section".

Could you give me a hint please?

Thanks again!

the HTML Editor instance is the place holder on your page.

select that in design view, then click the edit button in the property inspector.

once editing the HTML Editor instance, edit the Preset to get to the general tab.

Which edit button I have to click, "Edit in PowerCMS" or "Edit in Dreamweaver"?

Thanks!

open the page with HTML Editor on it.

Select the HTML Editor place holder in design view.

in the Dreamweaver property inspector, click the edit button.
