File manager plugin
The standard resource browser does not provide a delete-function for uploaded images, so you need a plugin. I've looked at kfm (kfm.verens.com) and phpletter (phpletter.com) and I'm not that impressed by either of them. Are there other file-manager-plugins?

pah! shocked and appalled, I am! ;-)

anyway - there's a list (not exhaustive) of other file managers here: http://kfm.verens.com/comparisons

I'm not sure if they all work as plugins for FCKeditor.

if you have the time, I'd like to know what it is about KFM which you don't like (kae@verens.com). thanks.

RE: File manager plugin
It's not immediately clear to me what it does and how it works; might have something to do with the design. To me the part on the right with the thumbnails is too small, it might help if you enlargen the file-manager-window to a 'horizontal' rectangle (hope that's clear), so the directory structure is in a relative small column on the left. Can I change the size of the file-manager-window myself?
Can I choose if the search, file details and directory properties are displayed in the file manager?

Regards,

Hans

RE: File manager plugin
yes -the window size is up to you. it can be as large or small as you want.

the panels on the left are mostly optional. you can choose which to have displayed (see the $kfm_hidden_panels option in the configuration).

the left column's width is fixed at the moment, but I'm working on some code which will allow you to change its size by dragging it.

there is a bug tracker for it, if there is something that you think is essential that is missing: http://mantis.verens.com/

I'm no designer, so the "design" of the file manager is basically a case of trial and error.

The forum for KFM is here: http://kfm.verens.com/phpBB3/

RE: File manager plugin
It works in FCKeditor but can you use it externally to enter the image file location directly into a text field (to be inserted into a database). Ie can it do that same as the pick.js thing for FCK's file browser (https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.p ... tid=543655)?

RE: File manager plugin
Duh, sorry just found the stuff on the webpage. Will have a look. The problem i am having with the FCK editors one is that 1: it has no thumbnails, 2: when i use it standalone (out of the editor), when it passes the filename it encodes the url (ie %20, etc) which then doesnt work with my thumbnail generator. Hopefully KFM will not do this (it didnt in the demo).

I found this excelent fix to add a delete funciton to the resourcebrowser, 4 easy steps to implement:

http://www.bram.us/2006/10/18/my-tinymc ... te-option/

I just skipped the "prerequisites" and went directly to the "main action".

all the "...where you'll find this:" are not exactly correct but it aint hard to figure where to add his code.

I'm using fckeditor v. 2.4.2

Thanks to Bramus

Hello!
I tried that code but I get the error:

DFi: Invalid XML response from connector..

when deleting a uploaded file.
I can't find out what the problem is.
Did you have the same problem or any idea how to solve?
Thank you

Re: File manager plugin
You have to open config.php and locate line:
$Config['ConfigAllowedCommands'] = array('QuickUpload', 'FileUpload', 'GetFolders', 'GetFoldersAndFiles', 'CreateFolder') ;
just add function 'DeleteFile'
Like this:
$Config['ConfigAllowedCommands'] = array('QuickUpload', 'FileUpload', 'GetFolders', 'GetFoldersAndFiles', 'CreateFolder', 'DeleteFile') ;

Do you mean this can be implemented directly into FCKeditor (as well as to the TinyFCK package) ?

Hi,
I test it for FCKeditor 2.6.3
Works this for me with a little modify.
So, thanks.
But, would i know why don't add this option to original FCKeditor ?

Tnx
