    Hi,

    I logged a support call last week (#
    122933) regarding the RAD editor for MOSS control (v 4.5.0.0), I've not had any form of response inside the agreed 48 hour time frame.

    In our current MOSS instalation we store all images used throughout the site in a central library in the root website of our site collection. However we are having problems because when editing a page from a sub-site we are unable to select an image from a library in a website above the current site.

    eg - Our site structure looks like so:

    /Root Site/
    /Root Site/Sub Site 1/
    /Root Site/Sub Site 2/

    Our images are stored in a library inside "/Root Site/"
    When editing content in "/Root site/Sub Site 1/" we are unable to select these images from the Image Manager.

    Is there a solution to this problem that would enable us to use the control as we intend?

    Hi Gavin,

    I have already answered your other support ticket. For your convenience  I pasted my answer bellow:


    You can set certain properties for RadEditor by modifying the respective ConfigFile.

    Web Part and WCM scenario

    You need to modify the ConfigFile.xml which is located in the following folder:

    /Program Files/Common Files/Microsoft Shared/web server extensions/wpresources/RadEditorSharePoint/4.5.0.0__1f131a624888eeed/RadControls/Editor/

    For example you can set the ImagesPaths property here:

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

    The same approach is used when setting FlashPaths, DocumentsPaths, MediaPaths etc. properties. If these properties are not set, by default RadEditor will load all local libraries (local to the current site)


    SharePoint forms scenario (Lists, Wikis, Blogs, etc.)

    You need to modify the ListConfigFile.xml located in the same folder.

    I've configured "DocumentsPaths" to use the root SiteCollectionDocuments, but I *also* want to use the current site's document libraries - how do I do this?

    If I just do this:

     <property name="DocumentsPaths">
     <item>SiteCollectionDocuments</item>
      </property>

    I only get SiteCollectionDocuments... and something like this doesn't seem to work:

     <item>./Documents</item>

    Thanks.

    Hi Stephen,

    Currently, you cannot use both the libraries from the current and the parent site - this problem will be fixed in the next release of RadEditor for MOSS (the Futures) which is scheduled for the early next week.

    Please, excuse us for the temporary inconvenience.
