#873 confirmed New Feature

show config errors in filemanager

I've noticed that an ongoing issue for many is that setting up file and image upload is difficult. Part of the reason is there is no documentation about how paths to the File etc folders are created, and also there is no feedback if you get it wrong - nothing to help with fixing it.

In using the plugin ImageManager from Zhuo, I noticed that it was much easier to fix config problems with upload directories because the code reports, when it can't access the directory, giving the url that it is trying to use. With just that little bit of feedback, you can usually fix the problem quickly.

If FileManager had some inscreen display, similar to this, I suspect that a lot of those "help me with file upload" problems would go away - or at least some good suggestions could be made for peeple who get the error.

I suggest this as a high priority, since I see many people spending a long time fixing this (and a number giving up after hours or days and not being able to fix it) - and my own experience of 2 days worth of frustrating debugging, trying different upload plugins and code hacking, before I could figure out enough to fix the problems I was having.

The waves of relief and gratitude from implementing this feature would be massive :-)

Have since been pointed to the test.html file that is found in FCKeditor\editor\filemanager\browser\default\connectors\ which provides some infomation on troubleshooting connection problems (although it would be good to have more information on this).
