Advanced file features are available when the Advanced File Manager has been enabled in the Global File Upload Settings option by adding a database connection. Enable File Management must also be enabled within the Global File Upload Settings, and your editor preset must have file upload and advanced image editing enabled.

Once the above settings are configured, the advanced editor can be accessed through an HTML Editor you have inserted on a page by clicking the Insert/Edit Link, Insert/ Edit Image, or Insert Edit Flash buttons, then clicking "Browse Server" on the resulting window.

OK, I got an Database selected now. What does it do with the database? does it create tables?

When I change thinks in the editor, do I always need to upload ALL THE FILES? that takes extremly long :-(((

Yes, the advanced options require a database to keep track of all sorts of things such as image data, tags, and directories.

It will create all the tables it needs with the prefix "kfm_".

As for uploading the files every time, you can work directory with the files on your server in Dreamweaver by changing from local view to remote view or testing server in the file window, but that isn't necessarily recommended. If something was to happen, it's always good to have a backup.

Did you ever get this working?

I would like this to work for me in PowerCMS (1.0.2) but with database set up, all advanced features checked, etc. still no advanced file management/image editing.

Mathew, did you managed to get this to work?

You would have to A) set up a database in your server settings and B) make sure to enable Advanced file editing in the preset.

Then just right-click on the image to crop, rotate, etc.

Thanks Ray, but yes, I have done that.

I have uploaded the PowerCMS files to two different sites (having edited the connections file and the WA_Globals.php). Dani mentioned that I didn't need to 'set' anything, PCMSv1.0.2 was already configured.

Both CMS work fine, but I don't get the Advanced File Manager or Image Editing.

Uploading the same configuration, folders, files - without 'setting' anything (apart from the localhost.php & WA_Globals.php) to a third site (different server) I get the Advanced Editor and File Management.

The third site was a test, - but I really need it to work on the first two.

The File manager URL in the 'Working' implementation points to:
index.php

And the 'Not Working' one points to:
browser.php

My 'Download' page gives my latest version of of PowerCMS as version 1.0.1, but the downloaded folder is called CMS102.

I would welcome any suggestions you may have.

Here is the phpinfo for Not working site 1, Not working site 2, and Working site.

Incidentally, the 'setting your globals' support file is somewhat error laden!

Create a page on one of those sites with an HTML editor instance. I will try to debug what isn't working.

Thanks Ray.

I have sent you an email with the CMS login details, so that you may look at the actual (no advanced features) instance of HTML Editor within the CMS environment. I have applied it to a basic template, as have wiped out the site for a clean install.

Will also create instance of just HTML Editor using that extension shortly.
