I'm trying to set up the site to upload files (FCKEditor/IMCE) and store the files in a private folder structure (via Site Config >> File System >> Private), the private folder for example could be "private_files". I'd like to create a folder for each user to keep the files separate (e.g., "private_files/1"). I edit the FCKEditor Global Profile: Location of files uploaded with FCKeditor in the private folder: %u. The %u is supposed to be a wildcard, but instead it's creating a folder called "%u", (e.g., "private_files/%u"). Is this my error, or a glitch in the code? (The editor and Drupal integration is awesome by the way!)

Thanks for all your hard work on this project.

Hi there, same issue with version 5.x-2.2. The suggested wildcard %u creates a folder named %u.
This seems to be a bug to me, because it worked fine in previous versions.

Speaking about version 2.1, why do private folders matter in 2.2 when it comes to file management with fckeditor and drupals private file system?

Setting path to uploaded files has been disabled because private downloads are enabled and this path is calculated automatically.To change the location of uploaded files in the private file system, edit the FCKeditor Global Profile.

I'm trying to accomplish my previous configuration with a private file system:

- shared fck upload folders for users in the same role

Any suggestions?

This is a bug, it has to be investigated if it exists as well in newer releases.
