Linking from text editor

Linking from text editor

Hi,

I am having trouble linking a file within the text editor. If I create a link using the insert link button, upload a file via the upload tab then send it to the server, the link ends up pointing to the document root folder while the file is uploaded to the folder containing my cms.

I have tried the solution suggested in the post below but to no avail:
showthread.php?t=3689&highlight=link

Could you please point me in the right direction.

Many thanks
Marcel

Sounds like the $WAGLOBAL_Root_URL variable in the WA_Globals.php file is not set properly.


If the CMS files are not at the root of your site, the $WAGLOBAL_Root_URL setting must include any sub directories.

for example, if the CMS files are uploaded to:
cms

the $WAGLOBAL_Root_URL should be set as :
$WAGLOBAL_Root_URL = "http://www.mydomain.com/cms/";
