Permission problem when creating folder

Apr 5, 2011 at 10:10 AM

Hi, I am using CKEditor 1.12.9 on DNN 5.5.1

Here is what i do:

  1. Log in to the site as Administrator
  2. Open a HTML module for editing
  3. Press the Image icon
  4. Press the Browse Server button
  5. Browse to the folder I want to add a folder to
  6. Press the Create New Folder Image
  7. Type in a name for my folder
  8. Press Create now

I then get an error "Object reference not set to an instance of an object"

If I go in and check the permissions on the newly created folder, this is only visible for Super User.

Is there a solution / workaround on this problem?


Best regards

And which dnn Version? Are you also logged in as Admin? is this the Main Portal or a Child Portal?

DNN Version 5.6.2

Top portal like:

If I create the folder with an administrator, I cannot se the folder with another administrator. The only one able to see the folder is Host Admin.
