JCE Pro 2.7.12 released

This update fixes a number of issues with Editor Profile parameters, in particular those related to the File Directory Path, and empty values in the Resize and Thumbnail options.

An issue with the Visual Blocks display has also been addressed, and the labels now look better on higher resolution screens.

File Directory Path - Allow Root Access

A significant change has been made to the Allow Root Access option, available when the Joomla (Default) Filesystem option is selected, that may affect some users.

Allow root access

In previous versions, setting this option to Yes would allow access to all the folders in the Joomla root directory, if the File Directory Path was left blank. If the File Directory Path contained a path value, this could not originate in any of the folders listed in the Restricted Directories field, or a default list of Joomla system folders.

So, for example, you could not have a File Directory Path value of media/images or libraries/files, as media and libraries are Joomla system folders.

In this release, the Allow Root Access option will give access to the Joomla root folder, as you would expect, regardless of the value set in the File Directory Path, ie: the value File Directory Path value will be ignored.

The Restricted Directories list will now be used as a filter, and the selected folders will not be displayed to the user, and will not allow access in any way (folder creation, file upload etc.) This list is now an editable list, and values can be addedd or removed as you do with Joomla Tags.

Allow Root Access - Restricted Directories

In addition to these changes, a number of other bugs have also been fixed.
