    We are having problem with the Image/Link Manager.

    If we use the sharepoint image manager, it only works with IE. On Firefox, the popup window is not communicating with its parent window

    If we use the RadEditor image manger, it can only access the libraries within the current site and I am not able to navigate the site tree to go to the parent site.

    Any fix on this problem. Thanks.

    Hello Sean,

    If we use the sharepoint image manager, it only works with IE. - The default asset picker of MOSS is not cross browser. It works only in IE. This is a known issue.

    If we use the RadEditor image manger, it can only access the libraries within the current site and I am not able to navigate the site tree to go to the parent site. - Unfortunately the ImageManager provided by Telerik does not have the described functionality. You can control which libraries to be loaded by the ImagesPaths property http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/image_manager.html.

    Here is some additional 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:
    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 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.

    Thanks for the reply.  It partially solves the problem.  But It still can't navigate the whole site tree.  I need to put each subsite I want to access in the configure file.

    Hello Sean,

    But It still can't navigate the whole site tree. - The Telerik's content provided is designed so it can navigate in all the sites in a single site collection.

    I need to put each subsite I want to access in the configure file. - You can add libraries from different subsites, which are in the current site collection. Once you set the ImagesPaths property you need to list all the libraries which you want to navigate to.

    If the provided by Telerik navigation does not suite your case you can use the default asset picker provided by the OOB moss editor. In order to do this in the respective ToolsFile.xml or ListToolsFile.xml change <tool name="ImageManager" shortcut="CTRL+G" /> to <tool name="MOSSImageManager" shortcut="CTRL+G" />
