Modify Open Source PHP File Manager


The htmlArea 2 & 3 editors have been discontinued.

We've made these forums available as a read-only reference and knowledge-base for people using or developing editors based on htmlArea 2 or 3.

Anyone who is interested in taking over version 2 or 3 is free to do so. All we ask is that you choose a new name that doesn't have "htmlarea" in it to avoid confusion with this site. We'll even give you a link in the directory to make it easier for people to find you. If you are developing or hosting an htmlArea based-editor under a new name, please submit it to our directory.

Modify Open Source PHP File Manager Can't Post

[novacaine] showed me a really cool file manager for use stand alone and with htmlarea 2 and 3 (See stand alone file manager demo ). It works great, but I would sure like to be able to plug the manager into a form and pass back just a value or two instead of making an array of results.

This file manager looks like it was based off an equally cool image manager (see stand alone image manager demo ). I've tried all saturday to get the stand alone file manager to work like the stand alone image manager but alas I am no php or javascript programmer.

Would anyone like to attempt to modify the stand alone file manager for the open source community? Or possibly post/share the code to mod the existing stand alone file manager? Thanks.

Could you be a little more specific? What exactly is it you want to do?

cheers,

here is what the standalone file manager does as best I can tell:

1. Click button on page "start.php" launches file manager.
2. Upload/choose file, click ok.
3. Send url, name, and comment to "array.php"
4. "start.php" reloads include file "array.php" so that the results appear in the "start.php" page.

Note: "start.php" and "array.php" are not the actual page names. just simplified page names for this explanation.

Here is what i would like the standalone file manager to do (which is what the standalone image manager does):

1. Click button on page "start.php" launches file manager.
2. Upload/choose file, click ok.
3. url value is passed back to one text field in the start.php page.

If you want to see how each one works, check out these links:

- standalone file manager demo
- standalone image manager demo

Don't get me wrong the file manager works great! awesome! like a dream! so does the image manager. I just need the file manager standalone to be a little simpler to incorporate into other forms. What do you think? Let me know if this is clear enough.

You want to be able to upload a file and have that file immediately selected for input into htmlarea. Do I understand you correctly?

Harold,

Here's what I want the standalone file manager to do:

1. Click button on page that launches file manager in a new window. (Both image and file managers do this already)

2. Proceed with the management/ upload/ editting/ deleting of files and images. (Both image and file managers do this already)

3. Choose file and click "ok". (Both do this already)

4. Editor Window closes. (Both do this already)

3. url value of file is passed back to one text field of your choosing in the original page. (Image manager does this, but the stand alone file manager sends multiple values back to a separate outside php page that reloads in your original page.)

Any ideas?
