custom upload directories
I can't seem to get custom upload directories working on version 2.62. I never had this issue with previous versions, so maybe something has changed that I've missed.
My Website Root Directory is "/home/studioz/public_html" and I'm trying to upload images to the /images/ directory in the root folder.
My custom upload folder setting in the section editor is set like this:
directory path: /home/studioz/public_html/images/
folder url: /images/
I'm getting two kinds of errors. One tells me to turn off flash uploader, the other is that nothing actually uploads and the image preview is an empty image box.
Am I making a common mistake here? These settings worked on previous versions (unless I'm on crazy pills here). Somebody please set me straight.
Well, after leaving the problem and coming back to it, I was surprised to find it working. I'm not sure what happened, but it's uploading properly now. These are the upload directories that worked:
Craig, I've had the same flash uploader problems you've experienced. That is, I cannot use the flash uploader when on Firefox (I get a message asking me to disable it).
I think that I found the origin.
There seems to be a problem with Check Referer (Security Settings).
If I desactivate (unchecked checkbox), the files are again uploaded.
Apparently, uploadify does not like much the function Check Referer.
The latest firefox doesn't work with even older versions of the flash uploader. We're working on a fix.
If you're getting this issue, try disabling this setting as Djulia suggests:
Check Referer [ ] Warn on external referers/links and require internal referer to submit data to CMS.
And if it still doesn't work, post back and let me know what error you're still getting.
