    I'm using version 4.3.2 of the MOSS RadEditor.  I want to tell the RADEditor to point to the root of the site collection in the ImageManager, so I'm adding this to the ListConfigFile.xml (as I see in the online documention):
      <property name="ImagesPaths"> 
        <item> ~/</item>
      </property>
    This throws a Server Error.  Other specific paths work fine.  What's the trick to point it to the root?

    Thanks,
    M.

    Hello Marc,

    Please, review the following help article which provides guidance how to set the ImagesPaths property of RadEditor for MOSS: Setting Properties Via Config File.

    To enable the upload in the Image Manager you should set also the UploadImagesPaths property as it is shown below:

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


    Please, note that the current version of the MOSS RadEditor only supports accessing libraries from the current site and parent site. This means that child sites will not be available in the Image Manager.

    I'm not concerned about uploading images.  What I want to be able to do is to use the Image Manager to insert images into my rich text column from the root of the Site Collection or and of its sub-sites.

    From the documentation at http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet/editor/RadEditor~Telerik.WebControls.RadEditor~ImagesPaths.html:

    Use "~/" (tilde) as a substitution of the web-application's root directory.

    Thanks,
    M.

    Hello Marc,

    At present, the requested feature to browse parent / top sites in the Image Library is not supported out-of-the box by the editor. We will do our best to provide this feature in the next update of RadEditor for MOSS, due in January' 2008.

    The help article that you read applies to the classic RadEditor which works with virtual folder, but the Image Manager of the MOSS editor works with a database.

    I'd like to support the calls for this feature - it really is fundamental to the way we're supposed to be working with images in MOSS, and it's supported by the Microsoft editor which RadEditor for MOSS is supposed to replace.

    Have a look at this thread. Use the MOSS image manager instead.
