I need users to be able to place images using the editor.  I of course do not want them going into and seeing files on the server, but I would like them simply to be able to upload am image and then place it wherever they want in the document they are creating.  Vbulletin editor has a way to do this, I need this functionality on my DNN site for both the forums and articles.  Is there a way to do this with r.a.d.

Any help is greatly appreciated, Thanks.

Hi David,

You can use the Image manager of RadEditor to upload and inserts image files in the content.

RadHtmlEditorProvider does not have a separate property to specify where content could be uploaded. It uses the DotNetNuke core functions to verify whether a user has write permissions to a specific folder. So in effect you only need to include an "ImagesPaths" property. The provider will decide to which paths from the list the user can upload.
The other difference from a normal editor is the "*PortalRoot*" path. It specifies the root folder of the portal, from which the editor is opened.

DotNetNuke keeps the folder and file structure of a portal in its database. When you manually copy content to your portal folder, the database and the folder get out of sync. Normally after you change the folder structure of your portal, you should go to Admin>File Manager and click the Synchronize Database And File System link. This will insert information about the new folders in the database and ensure that RadEditor will be working correctly. An exception "Directory already exists." will be thrown if you try to use the editor when the database and file system are not synchronized.

Example:

If you set ImagesPaths="images, *PortalRoot*", the user will be able to select images from "DotNetNuke/Portals/0/" and "DotNetNuke/Portals/0/images/", where "DotNetNuke" is the root folder of your DotNetNuke project.

Here is an example configuration of RadEditor in the web.config file of the DotNetNuke project:
...
< htmlEditor defaultProvider ="RadHtmlEditorProvider">
  < providers >
   <
clear />
<
add name ="RadHtmlEditorProvider"
type ="Telerik.DNN.Providers.RadHtmlEditorProvider, Telerik.DNN.Providers.RadHtmlEditorProvider"
providerPath ="~\Providers\HtmlEditorProviders\RadHtmlEditorProvider\"
AutoCreatePaths ="true"
ImagesPaths ="*PortalRoot*" />

Thanks for the INfo

In the end looks like I accomplished what I needed by setting
AutoCreatePaths and EnableUploadUserFolders in the WebConfig.

Then I figured it would be more manageable if I used the Config.XML file.

Any docs on what settings are available from where which work in web.Config and which in Config.xml they only thing I could find to date is 
http://dnn.telerik.com/Support/radEditorHtmlproviderOverview/tabid/50/Default.aspx
And though this lists many valid settings it seems that there are may be invalid as well that no longer work in the flash version since this is for the old version. Obviously reading through the Code is one option.

So far The List I have is as follows (for anyone else that stumbles on this thread).

Hello David,

Thank you for the provided information! The documentation you are referring to is for the old RadEditor provider for DNN (using the classic ASP.NET version of the editor). The documentation for the new provider (based on the ASP.NET AJAX RadEditor) is available online at http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/dnn-radeditor-provider.html. We will update it soon with an article about what properties are available from the ConfigFile.xml and the provider definition in the Web.config file.

Regards,
