    Hi we're using the radeditor voor MOSS version 5.3.2.

    And we have 2 problems with the managers.

    1. We want to use libraries on the top site collection for getting images. Using the information on this site i put  ~/PublishingImages in the configfile.xml. The library name is correct but still when i open the image manager, He can't find that path.

    2. In the flashfilter when I use <item>*.sw*</item> my .swf file isn't shown when I open the flashmanager, but when i use the filter <item>*.swf</item> it is shown.

    <configuration> 
      <property name="EditModes">Design,Preview</property> 
      <property name="ToolbarMode">Default</property> 
      <property name="Skin">Telerik</property> 
      <property name="Width">740px</property> 
      <property name="CssFiles"
                <item>\wpresources\RadEditorSharePoint\5.3.2.0__1f131a624888eeed\Resources\CssEditor.css</item> 
      </property> 
      <property name="ImagesPaths"
             <item>PublishingImages</item> 
            <item>~/SiteCollectionImages</item> 
      </property> 
      <property name="DocumentsPaths"
       <item>Documents</item> 
      </property> 
      <property name="DocumentsFilters"
       <item>*.*</item> 
      </property> 
      <property name="FlashPaths"
       <item>/Flash Library</item> 
    </property> 
    <property name="FlashFilters"
       <item>*.sw*</item> 
    </property> 
    <property name="MaxDocumentSize">100000</property> 
      
    </configuration>

    Hi Jeroen,

    Here is 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:
    SiteCollection/ImagesLibrary
    SiteCollection/SubSite1/ImagesLibrary

    Lets  open the SubSite1 ConfigFile.xml and set the following images path:
    <property name="ImagesPaths"
      <item>ImagesLibrary</item> 
    </property> 

    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"
      <item>/ImagesLibrary</item> 
    </property> 


    Also you should know that if you set a 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.

    I already know that, and that works fine, but let me explain my problem.

    We have a web application for example as http://intranet.dev.com
    Which contains a library named Site Collection Images

    I have a site collection http://intranet.dev.com/sitecollection
    Which contains a library named Site Collection Images



    And a site http://intranet.dev.com/sitecollection/subsite1.
    Which contains a library named Images

    When i use my configfile, the last 2 (the libraries from the subsite and site collection) are added to the image manager, but I also want to add the library on the highest level. Therefore i used the ~/SiteCollectionImages.

    Hello Jeroen,

    There is no need to use "~" in the path to SiteCollectionImages of the highest level. All you need to do is remove the "~" symbol and leave the setting to /SiteCollectionImages.

    Hi Jeroen,

    This should point to the SiteCollectionImages which is in the root of the web application.
    <property name="ImagesPaths">  
     <item>/SiteCollectionImages</item>  
    </property>

    Let me explain myself.

    We have 1 web application which contains several site collections, each site collection contains several sites.
    Every site collection has it's own images library.

    http://intranet.dev.com/                               (this is a root webapplication)
    http://intranet.dev.com/sites/telerik             (under the managed path sites I created a site collection named telerik)
    http://intranet.dev.com/sites/telerik2           (under the managed path sites I created a site collection named telerik2)
    http://intranet.dev.com/sites/telerik/jeroen      (under the telerik site collection I created a site named jeroen

    A web application can contain multiple site collections, under a managed path.
    Every site colection can contain multiple sites.

    When I open the image manager in http://intranet.dev.com/sites/telerik/jeroen  i want to be able to access 3 image libraries:
    • The image library from the site itself (http://intranet.dev.com/sites/telerik/jeroen), I can do this with:<item>PublishingImages</item>
    • The image library from the site collection the site is in (http://intranet.dev.com/sites/telerik), I can do this with: <item>/SiteCollectionImages</item> 
    • The image library from the root of web application (http://intranet.dev.com). I don't know how I can do this.
    I hope this helps you better to understand my problem.

    Hi Jeroen,

    Unfortunately in RadEditor for MOSS you can access files only from the current site collection (this is how the content provider works). I apologize for the inconvenience but the desired functionality can not be achieved.
