I installed IMCE and Filefield_sources modules to browse the files on the server. my website is on the localhost yet. the directory path of User-1 which is assigned to the administrator is set to <root>/temp_files but when I click on the browse file link in the add new content page it only displays files the are uploaded via IMCE file browser not the files I uploaded in the Directory path. why ?


my OS is Windows so I guest it is not permission related.

found it!

Instead of using Filefield_source module I should use the IMCE for FileField module, that's all. Details from project page:

IMCE for FileField allows users to select files from IMCE File Browser. It supports FTP uploaded files by automatically registering them as IMCE files thus making them usable in a FileField.

How to use

  • Go to your FileField settings page.
  • Check the box saying Allow users to select files from IMCE File Browser for this field
