    Hi,
    i am using radEditor Lite and have the problem that the imagemanger can only show images in the current website :-(

    I know that i can change the config.xml but isn't it posible to browse the directories from the root or show the site collection images?

    Thank you for your support
    greetings from germany

    Hi,

    Try adding the following in your editor configuration file:

      <property name="ImagesPaths">
        <item>SiteCollectionImages</item>
      </property>

    This will tell the image manager dialog to use the Site Collection Images list from the root site in all sub-webs.

    We have the opposite problem.  We have the property in place as you have described below so that content managers of our subwebs can access a shared image library in the root site of the SiteCollection; however, with this property in place it appears that they can no longer navigate image libraries within the current site...they can only use the library referenced in the ImagesPaths property.

    Is there any way to allow them to access both (i.e. image libraries within the current site AND the shared library in the root)?

    Hello Christopher,

    You can add more than one item in the ImagesPaths list. This means that you can add a library from the current site as well. However, I am not sure that this will solve your problem.

    The next editor release for MOSS will have an updated file browser content provider so you will be able to properly use libraries from all sites.

    In the mean time, you can switch to the original MOSS image asset picker by changing the editor's tools file - change the tool "ImageManager" to "MOSSImageManager". However, you should note that the original MOSS image asset picker has known problems with the Firefox browser. Microsoft addressed these in the MOSS 2007 SP1 release, so if you have the service pack you should be OK.

    Best wishes,

    We've just upgraded to the 4.5 version of the editor and I'm running into the same issue Christopher (above) is having. I've added a single item to the ImagesPaths list and I would like for users to see this library as well as any libraries they have created in their own sites.

    Do you know if this configuration is possible with the new version? If so, are there additional steps besides adding the ImagesPaths item?

    Thanks,

    Derek

    Hello Derek,

    I am afraid this is not possible. By design RadEditor will show the default folders if the paths are not set in the configuration file. If you set these paths however, you will override RadEditor's default settings and the manager will show only the pre-set folders.





    Kind regards,

    Hi,

    I added the property of site collections images to my editor configuration files, but I couldn't see the folders from my root site?

    cheers

    Hello Lauri ,

    I assume that you have the current editor for MOSS release - 4.53. If this is the case, then you need to have the following property in the configuration files in order to access the root site collection images library:

      <property name="ImagesPaths">
          <item>/SiteCollectionImages</item>
      </property>
