Thread: News Plugin - CKFinder 3

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    News Plugin - CKFinder 3

    I read the prior threads discussing that Flynax uses the demo version of CKFinder 3 for the News post plugin.

    Unfortunately, CKFinder 3 demo version does NOT allow us to delete images that we upload onto our server:

    - "You cannot delete files in DEMO mode."

    Most prior threads indicate we need to buy a CKFinder 3 license to get more functionality:

    - See Here: https://ckeditor.com/pricing/?

    - Easy Image: $204 / year
    Insert images that are automatically rescaled, optimized, responsive, and delivered through a blazing-fast CDN.

    - CKFinder: $156 / year:
    File upload and management with CKFinder.

    Unfortunately, I find the cost very, very high.

    Is there another solution other than buying CKFinder 3?

    Where is the file location to delete the uploaded files from the backend?

    Hello,

    There is a workaround to activate CKFinder 3:

    go to this site and generate a licence key for your domain: https://ganlvtech.github.io/ckfinder...er_keygen.html



    then go to file manager > libs > ckfinder > config.php > set your domain name and license key for $config['licenseName'] and $config['licenseKey'] respectively

    Confirm, it worked.

    I was only able to get it to work adding key located after the following text:

    - The License Key used by demo on CKFinder Home Page (Can be used by any hostname): {.........code........]

    I saw this yesterday too, i deleted the files, to go on the (ftp)server, and go to images directorie. Works also�� but license-key is always better to have.

    What specific files did you delete?

    Hi guys, is this only benefit News post plugin? Does it unlock new feature for CKeditor?

    I think it just unlocks the ability to manage all your website images.

    I noticed some files that were previously removed using the Admin Panel.

    However, the images were still on the server.

    Does that mean regular user can manage all website image too? Or just his/her image? If used in regular posting ads

    You can change the default tmp directory:

    in ckfinder > config.php > find at the bottom:

    PHP Code:
    Only registered members can view the code
    replace sys_get_temp_dir() with a path to your upload directory


    then go to ckfinder > core > connector > php > vendor > cksource > ckfinder > src > CKSource > CKFinder > Config.php

    and do the same

    As far as I know, CKFinder 3 is only used by admin on News post.

    I do not think that users use CKFinder when entering listings.

    However, I believe CKFinder 3 also manages other admin components that I do not know.
