Forms - Insert File Manager destination directory question

Trying to add a file upload feature for product images to our site in the easiest way. So I used the WA Form>Insert File Manager and created the file attached. It seems to work and does upload a test file(question-head.jpg) from a location I choose. My question is how do I control the TO<destination> location? I see the file in the upload panel(attached) as well as 2 others already there but I can't locate the file or identify/control its location.
I see other WA alternatives/tools to install an uploader but this seemed the simplest.

Go to WebAssist->HTML Editor->Site Settings

You can set the default upload folder from that interface.

Tried that and get the attached message, "These settings are managed thru your website admin area. Please log into your website admin to make changes." What would you suggest?

Are you using PowerCMS or Powerstore? If so, then that folder is managed through the admin. The error you are seeing implies that the folder path is set in the database through one of those tools.

Using PowerCMS. Thanks - I did not make that association. Changed settings there and it works fine.

Been using the PowerCMS uploader just fine, but have a weird behavior. As in thread above, I changed the Upload directory to /images from the default PCMS directory of /files. However, without my changing any Settings, after a period of time, PCMS resets the upload directory to /files and then I have to go back and change it again as all my code references /images. My work around would be to change all my code and the Settings back to /files but maybe you have a better way to make the Settings to /images stick? Your help much appreciated.

The key is to figure out how and when it is changing the directory... then we can prevent it from happening again. I'm sure you could make it stick by hard coding it in the configuration file itself and not using the configurable settings.

Think I'd like to hard code it. Looks like that might be the js/listfolder.js or js/settings.js - not sure. Could use your help on what file and where to hard code it. Thank you

should be in the file:

webassist/kfm/configuration.php

If you send me a copy of that file I can reference line numbers.
