Images....IMCE, and .. stuff.

    Modified by on Friday, June 29, 2007 - 08:58

     I have been trying to reconcile the usability issues between IMCE (the image embedder/browser in the editor) and community-developed content.

     

    The main problem was that if someone made a wiki page, they should use IMCE, as it makes insertion easier. If someone came along and edited the page and somehow "lost" the image inlines, they'd be screwed -- IMCE does not permit browsing private file directories.

     

    I've decided to remove the private file directories and have everyone work with a public pool. Ownership for auditing is established by the user's UID prefixed to the filename, as well as a log entry. Destructive permissions (delete,resize) are reserved for wiki editors and admins only.

     

    Edit:  Please ignore my horrible example of the website launcher troubleshooting page.  Using the gallery for wiki images should be avoided.
