upload images from file manager via custom file field

Post by Sendlingur »

Hi

In my news module I created a custom file field called 'images' to upload images.

when I choose to upload image via that custom field I am only able to search for images on my local Drive.

What if I want to upload an image that are in the file manager? How am I supposed to do that via the custom field? Is that possible?

Use the 'Linked File' field type.

Currently it doesn't let you choose a file picker profile, but a complete rewrite of News is in the works which I imagine will include that.
