[Pro] MCImage Manager in Web Yep

Greetings.

I purchased the Image Manager for use with TinyMCE for webyep rich text elements. I want to enable the end user to be able to upload copy with pictures for a “newspaper” type site.

I am stuck on the install. I put the folder where the instructions say to put it, but from there the instructions talk about adding it to the options. I cannot locate the script that they say to add it into.

If you can offer some ‘how-to’ I’d would be grateful.

Hi Rich,

can’t tell you the “how to do with MCImage” cause I use TinyBrowser instead, but the key in TinyMCE is the so called tinymce_init.php. It’s the “steering” of TinyMCE and has to be put in the opt folder.

The best way to get the basics of the tinymce_init.php if you call the extended example on the TinyMCE The Most Advanced WYSIWYG HTML Editor | Trusted Rich Text Editor | TinyMCE
and grab this code (view source).

Add step by step the necessary code snippets to it. I built it as I remember with BBEdit, but I’m sure there other possibilities to build a .php plain file.

In there I bet, you have to put some lines of code like:

as path to your extension.

In addition you have to bring in the

plugins : “safari,spellchecker,pagebreak…”, the extension MCimage-manager whatever name it is.

That’s the way I integrated TinyBrowser in TinyMCE and MCImage should work nearly the same.

Now - it’s just a shot in the dark, but I’m sure not far away of the final result.

Thomas,

Are you saying that I need to write a new script and put it in the file with the others?

I thought that the list of init plugins options was existing somewhere in one of the existing scripts and that I had to add “imagemanger” to that list. That is the name of the folder that is I had to add to the plugins directory. That part was simple enough. Here is the list of instructions:

Installing it as a TinyMCE plugin

  1. Unpack the imagemanager and copy it to the tinymce plugins directory (tiny_mce/plugins/imagemanager).
  2. Add imagemanager to the TinyMCE init plugins option.
  3. Add insertimage to the list of buttons in the TinyMCE init options.
  4. Reload the page and verify that the imagemanager is working by checking for browse buttons inside the link and image dialogs.
  5. Configure the filesystem.rootpath config option by editing the config.php file (tiny_mce/plugins/imagemanager/config.php)
  6. Make sure that the configured rootpath has write access.
  7. Enable and integrate your CMS with the SessionAuthenticator or any other Authenticator implementation to make it secure. You can either use your own authentication script or set a username and password in the login_session_auth.php file. If you don’t add username and password settings for ImageManager, any visitor to your website may be able to upload or delete any image they like.

Most of this is greek to me.

If you have any further thoughts on how to, I’d appreciate any assistance.

Thanks,

Rich

Hi Rich,

what I meant is you need first a tinyMCE init.

I packed one together (and some instructions quick and dirty) to download it from here:

http://www.kimmich-dm.de/blogging/disqus-follow.php?DOC_INST=15

Download the file, unzip and edit path (first line).

Upload and you should be done steps 1-4.

5 is a file looking similar to the init one and has to be edited as well, guess path as well. But I do not know them cause I have no copy of this imagemanager :slight_smile:

6 depends on your webhost and if you have the permission to set any access ( in my case its all permissions by default).

7 not sure myself.

Hope it helps to make greek an understandable language.

Thomas,

How thoughtful of you. I am not in front of my computer right now, but as soon as I am I will attempt to get this working with your instructions.

Thanks again…I may need more help too !

Thomas,

Thanks for the inquiry and your assistance. I still couldn’t get it working.

I email Max Fancourt (web yep Max) and he sent me back a complete package that had everything going. It functions pretty good now, although Max said there is another option for images that he is working on now, and that he will present that soon.

Thanks again for the help.
