Hi Ejub Kucuk,
The option for creating thumbnails (AllowThumbGeneration
) has been removed from RadEditor Prometheus' Image Manager
tool. Our RadEditor team are planning to provide a new Image Editor
dialog, which will offer the thumbnail generation mechanism. This is going to be released in the official build of RadControls in April.
However, what you now see in Generic Content is not the original RadEditor Image Manager
tool, as we have disabled it in Sitefinity and replaced it with our custom Insert an Image
If you like, you can always switch back to the original Image Manager
tool through the ~/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/EditorToolsFile.xml
file, just insert the highlighted line to enable it:
<!--tool name="LibraryImageManager" text="Insert an image"/-->
<tool name="ImageManager" shortcut="CTRL+G"/>
(Note that the icons for the two tools are the same, so it will be difficult for end users to dicsern between the two dialogs if you leave them both enabled in the EditorToolsFile.xml
What you can do about your journalists:) is make them set the width and height for the uploaded images through the Images & Documents module > Edit images screen. To get a clearer idea how the Images & Documents module works, please refer them to the Sitefinity User Manual, too:)
Note that the uploaded images are stored in the project database.
You can also easily extend Sitefinity to achieve the desired behavior and make their lives easier.
These are the steps you need to follow in order to accomplish this:
1. Unzip the attached file in your website directory.
2. Add this line to the <toolboxControls> section of your application web.config:
|<add name="MyGallery" section="Custom Controls" type="MyGallery, App_Code" />
3. Go to edit your page and drag and drop MyGallery
control from the toolbox section "Custom Controls".
4. When you edit it, you will see that you can add Height and Width to your thumbnails.
Of course, we'll take your remark into consideration and we'll definitely think of some way to provide similar functionality.
Thanks for your feedback and involvement.
