So where are the image files going?

So where are the image files going?

Ok - I downloaded and configured version 1.0.2 for file management. The first time I tried to upload a file, two directories were created under the cms folder (where my cms is located) - one is named "files" and under that one is cms_files. When I upload an image file, the "upload successful" message is displayed - but the directories remain empty - I verified this by going to the server and looking around............so where are they going?

Hello shadow329043,

in my case on the remote-server there is a folder (within the CMS folder) called 'files' There i can find all my uploads. Hope it helps.

That is my problem - there are NO files in the cms/files folder on the remote server. And I configured that directory (files) when I set up file management - the uploads are just not appearing - could it be a path problem when I set up file management? I used both cms\files and files and niether seem to work.

When You click the Insert/Edit Image and click the Browse Button and Upload an Image, Does the image show up (before you insert it to the HTMLEditor)?

No it doesn't - and the path shown for the uploaded file is \cms\files\filename. The upload path I set in the editor was \cms\files\ and I noticed that the folder "files" is not world writeable and I am denied the ability to change the permissions (don't now if that mean anything - just thought I would mention it). I used the content_insert page to edit the instance of the HTMLeditor.

One thing that I did notice is that the HTMLeditor put a folder of the same name under my website root and not the \cms\ folder where the cms is located so basically there are two HTMLeditor folders - one under the root and one under the \cms\ folder, which is the one that came with the solution. It would be nice to specify where these files should go. I used the edit button under properties to edit the instance of HTML editor

**************additional info*****************
Been working on this for awhile - I deleted BOTH folders locally and remotely - and copied the HTMLeditor folder from my cms backup to the local cms directory - when I tried to edit the HTMLeditor instance, the new HTMLeditor folder was re-created in the root......this is in addition to the one in the cms directory. Then the create content page went blank - When I click on the insert content tab, all I got was a blank page - so I copied the contents_insert page from backup and did not edit the editor instance and just uploaded it to the remote site and that restored my insert new content function. So now I am wondering if I should delete the HTMLeditor folder from the cms directory and/or move the one in the web root to the cms folder?
