Changing the default upload file directory for the HTML Editor


There are times when you would like to change the default upload file directory to make sure that users upload to a specific directory while using the HTML Editor upload feature. This article goes into the process of changing the default directory.





To change the default file upload directory location:

  1. Go to Settings > Site Settings > Site Behavior > More
  2. Click "Open HTML Editor Manager"
  3. Click "File Browser Settings" Tab
  4. Click the Browser Root Folder dropdown
  5. Change the setting to any folder in the Portal Folder.




  • Changing the Browser Root Folder and leaving Send it to Server as Standard will change both where Browse Server and Send it to Server point.
  • Changing the Send it to Server and leaving the Browser Root Folder as Standard will only change where Send it to Server points.
  • The only instance in which you would set them both would be if you wanted different destinations for both.



You can test that the folder upload directory has changed by:

  1. Access a Content Editor account or higher
  2. Go to Edit mode and edit and HTML Pro module
  3. Click Advanced Editor
  4. Click Image > Browse Server 

You should see that the upload opens in the folder that you've selected.
