File Manager instance in HTML Editor

File Manager instance in HTML Editor

I can't figure out how to put a File Manager instance in HTML Editor 3. I have a few instances of HTML Editor text boxes in my Insert & Update forms where images are to be uploaded. The Getting Started tut & video only cover how to put a standalone File manager in a form.
I've setup the Site Settings, and chosen the File Upload components in the Editor. Please help.
Thanks
Dave

Did you add the add image option to the html editor menu? That is basically the access point.

As long as you enable file upload and add the image field option to the menu it should all just work. Maybe if you attach a copy of the page you are having difficulty with I can spot the issue.

Thanks Ray - now I see the <Browse Server> button next to URL in the Image Properties after selecting the Image icon in the editor.
I was looking for a file upload field in the toolbar. Now to fine-tune it!

One other problem is that in the Image Properties URL there is no separating forward slash between the directory set in Site Settings & the subdir set in the Editor instance. I have to insert the "/" manually. Is there a fix for this?
I'm using Data Bridge 1.1.4

You may have to manually add the slash in the /webassist/kfm/configuration.php file...

just add : ."/"

to the end of the line that begins with:
$kfm_userfiles_output =

Perfect! I've now got it working dynamically so images are uploaded to a folder (name) based on a unique record accession number.

I placed this code between the recordsets and the WA Update Record SB:

<?php // setup dynamic folder for images in HTML Editor
$original = array(' ', '&', ',', '/');
$replace = array('', 'and', '', '');
?>
<?php $testpath=str_replace($original, $replace, strtolower($row_rsCaseDetail['accession_no'])); ?>
.
.
Then in the HTML Editor instance:

$CKEditor_config["uiColor"]):"%23eee")."&theme=webassist_v2&startup_folder=case_images/".$testpath;

It creates the folder if it does not exist.

I could have used a regex for stripping any unwanted characters, but this code works.

On a roll!

Just wondering if one can set a default folder in KFM to upload from?
The users will be uploading the files from this intermediate default folder to the working directory: /case_images/".$testpath
I need to control what they upload.

Another thing in KFM that I've just noticed is the working directory loses its path if 'viewing files as' is changed to 'list' from 'icons'
Then it stays on the base folder in 'Site Settings' if changed back to 'icons'.

Cheers

No, the folder that the user uploads from is one that is one their system. PHP cannot view the client system, that would be a security hazard.

Of course. I'm still testing on a development server, so forgot about that.
I just edited last post with another question.
Thanks

you will need to set the upload folder in the /webassist/kfm/configuration.php file in the:
$kfm_userfiles_address

setting.

The configuration.php file has this code so /images is the base folder:

$kfm_userfiles_address = '../../images';

The HTML Editor code for the working directory is:

$CKEditor_config["uiColor"]):"%23eee")."&theme=webassist_v2&startup_folder=case_images/".$testpath;

(Refer to post #5 above for explanation of the dynamic folder name: $testpath )

All is fine until I change to 'list' from 'icons' then working directory is lost.
