Hello,

We are having difficulties to make Image Manager Extended search files inside subfolders starting from the current directory.
It seems that the search input is searching only the files located in the current folder.
Example: https://drive.google.com/file/d/14Dxz4djhfqkoDcwPF7FxMw8NVAW6HWaH/view

Does JCE Image Manager offers this feature, or we need to do something extra to have this feature(install an extension, turn on some feature, etc)?!

Meanwhile, we need to have a searching feature like this:

Thank you!

Please try JCE Pro 2.8.0 RC4 - https://www.joomlacontenteditor.net/downloads/editor/pro/development

This replaces the Search Filter with a recursive file search up to 3 folders deep (this value will be configurable in the stable release)

You can also search by extension, eg: .jpg or using a wildcard ie: mount*lion to match variations of the name mountain lion, eg: mountain-lion, mountain-large-lion, mountain_lion etc.

Just because you're not paranoid doesn't mean everybody isn't out to get you.

The Search option in the File Browser is currently limited to filtering the items current directory, it does not recursively search the directory.

This is something I am looking to improve in a future version.

For what I have seen these years JCE has a ton of features, it's unbelievable to hear that this extension does not offer this feature.

On the other hand, I am dealing with a lot of editors with WP background that are expressing their annoyment with Joomla overall and the editor...

Does the team of JCE has an ETA to code this feature?!

Thank you for your response

At this point, I am thinking to build something simple to do the job.
With JS an extra input will be added to the interface of Image Manager Extended and using a custom web service I am going to put the results on files list.

For the moment I am having difficulties calling an extra JS file when Image Manager Extended is being shown.
I can alter the JS files that are being loaded, but I don't want my code overwritten after a JCE update.

Could you help me with this issue?

Thank you!
