Hi. I am trying to get some images into the description of a category and though I certainly know how to upload images through the cPanel File Manager and then include the image by pasting the URL in the Image tool in the CKeditor, --- my clients will have absolutely no idea what to do. This is way too hard. Same goes for any description editing for Edit Product and Update Content. I see a Files Upload page, but no way to actually upload a file.

I have a CMS I wrote that also uses the CKeditor, and what I did is create a pop-up window that allows my users to upload images to the site (single folder) and then simply drag an image from the pop-up into the CKedit window. Piece of cake once you get the hang of it.

Is there any way of adding that kind of functionality?

Short of that, are there plans to upgrade the Image tool in your install of CKeditor to include image file uploads?

Thanks.

If I were able to do it, I would simply add a new management page under Design called Page Images or something like that. Allow for image file uploads, including resizing to the site's current standard sizes. Once they're up there, I can teach my clients how to use the URL field in the Image tool of CKedit.

That should be a quick addition, and I'd be willing to fund it. Even more so if the images were accessible directly when editing a product, category or content page.
