Me too!

I strongly want this!

Best if it can be set within Joomla's admin backend!

Can some Joomla Guru give some help on this issue!

I have been looking for solution for a long time!

Thanks!

I have found this question many times about JCE but it never gets answered. After many hours of research I found the solution.

1. Go to Components > JCE Administration > Groups
2. Click Default. Towards the bottom of the pages is another "file directory path" under plugin options.
3. If it doesn't let you make changes make sure your usertype has the correct access to make the change. It's on the setup tab under Groups.

I expect to receive good karma these next few days for finding this for everyone.

Thanks denver7610 for your efforts!

I summarize this according to my understanding here:
http://kb.healthkb.org/view/JoomEXT:JCE_Editor

This should works if Joomla is installed directly under public_html
-> but what if Joomla is install under: public_html/Joomla
-> and I want to set the image file folder to: public_html/data/Joomla_Image

Thanks for any kind of help!

RESTRICTING USERS TO THEIR OWN UPLOAD FOLDERS

An important security feature that many people need is the ability to restrict users to their own
upload folder. They don't want John to be able to browse around the site and see all the documents that Jane has uploaded. They don't want one client being able to find files destined for another client. JCE can do that too.

Go to Components >> JCE Administrator >> Groups.
Again, click on the existing "Default" group as an example.
Click the "Editor Parameters" tab and scroll to the bottom where you'll see "File Directory Path".
In this field you'll be able to choose the settings for people's folders. Some instructions are available in the yellow pop-up box:

directories.png



The setting I often use is images/stories/$username This will automatically create a folder for each person based on their username and they'll only be able to upload to that folder.
Finally, this setting only works inside JCE so you 'll need to unpublish the normal Joomla image button. Go to Extensions >> Plugin Manager and disable the plugin called "Editor Button - Image".

I arrived at the necessary setting in a slightly different way than denver7610 did. I assume the difference has to do with changes in the past year - couldn't say for sure..

> Components -> JoomlaCK Editor Manager
> JCK Editor button
> Basic Options (Right Column) -> "Location of the Images" field
