    I have a problem using RADEditor/ImageManager on WSS 3.0.

    I have recently created a new web application and for that a site-collection. Then I activated the Rad Editor and created a Announcement list called MyNews. When using ImageManager to select an Image I have an empty ImageManager dialog - no directory to browse in. It is not possible to create a directory -  I get "Could not create". I have tried with various path settings before hitting Create. I am an administrator of this site. Since I have no directory so select and it is not possible to create a directory it's not possible to upload images.

    On my other site collections I have no problem to create directory and to add/select images.

    Any suggestions on what I can do?

    Hi Micael,

    The libraries shown in the ImageMnager dialog are controlled by the ImagesPaths collection.

    Here is some information on how the ImagesPaths collection works.

    By default, all the libraries from the current site are included in the ImagePaths collection.

    When you set path starting without slash (e.g. "ImagesLibrary"), you will refer a local library - library from the current Web. If you set path staring with slash (e.g. /ImagesLibrary), you will refer a library from the SiteCollection (root).

    For example:

    Lets  open the SubSite1 ConfigFile.xml and set the following images path:
    <property name="ImagesPaths">
    The ImageManager will load the SiteCollection/SubSite1/ImagesLibrary. 

    If you set the path with slash the ImageManager will open the SiteCollection/ImagesLibrary e.g. 
    <property name="ImagesPaths">

    Also you should know that if you set e library such as SiteCollection/SubSite1/ImagesLibrary, the currently logged user should have at least reading rights for all site collections of the path. Otherwise the ImagesLibrary will not appear in the ImageMangager dialogue.

    I hope this helps.
