IMCE File Browser

Application: 
OSU Drupal 6

 

The IMCE file browser was originally developed to work specifically with the TinyMCE text editor.  The IMCE acronym stands for Images for Moxie Code Editor.

The original purpose of the IMCE file browser was to provide a tool that helped a user more easily embed images.  Over time, this module has grown into a full-featured, user-friendly file browser with the capability of performing some simple image operations such as resizing and thumbnail creation.

Administrators can also now create and delete directories from within the file browser itself.

Accessing the IMCE File Browser

Application: 
OSU Drupal 6

 

Accessing the IMCE file browser is, unfortunately, not a completely straightforward process.

To get to the IMCE file browser, do the following:

In your browser's address bar, type the word "profile" after your site's root.  Typically the site root in a URL is very similar to the site name.  For example, here on CWS Training, the word profile would come after the word "training": ex: http://oregonstate.edu/cws/training/profile.

Entering this URL into your address bar will take you to a list of all users on the site.  Locate your username and click on it.

You will be taken to your user profile page.  Click on the File Browser tab.
