FCKeditor: browsing images and folders

Posted on 2005-05-06

We're using FCKeditor as html-editor on our website. I would like to be able to use the image browser. I can't figure out how to get it to work. It seems like the image browser needs an xml-file with data about files and folders. That's not the problem.

I believe the image browser takes arguments via the url. It takes the form:


Command: GetFoldersAndFiles
Type: Image
CurrentFolder: ?
ServerPath: ?

It's not clear to me what is needed for currentfolder and serverpath. Then the xml-file has a name, so shouldn't that be used somewhere? Or am I completely on the wrong track here?

    The browser is set to use a specific folder in the root of your domain, so if you  don't have it already create


    You can also create the directory


    which will hold non-image documents to link to.

    I'm sure it can be configured to use a different folder, but I haven't been able to work out how. I rewrote the browser to work with my site structure instead.

    I got it all working. We're using jsp, and the serverpath and currentfolder parameters are not implemented in the connector.

    In php I only got the serverpath parameter working. There the serverpath is used like: &ServerPath=/folder1/sub2/etc/. This will display the images from (idem for Files etc).

    The currentfolder parameter should be the folder inside the Images folder, but for some reason that's not working here.
