Entering details for pages in different directories

Hi There

I know it's probably something simple but I have a number of different sub directories containing pages that I need to add CMS to.

How do I make the correct pathway known to PowerCMS.

Without sounding too dumb (to late) could you please give an example with the answer.

PowerCMS cannot automatically generate the correct path for you in this case, you will need to adjust the path accordingly.

For example, if you powerCMS is Located at:

and you have a page at:

you will need to manually adjust the paths to move down two directories to the root, then find the CMS folder:
<?php include "../../CMS/Connections/localhost.php"; ?>
<?php include "../../CMS/WA_CMS/WA_CMS.php"; ?>

If you have another page at:

the paths will need to be adjusted to move down 4 directories to the root, then find the CMS folder:
<?php include "../../../../CMS/Connections/localhost.php"; ?>
<?php include "../../../../CMS/WA_CMS/WA_CMS.php"; ?>
