    In DNN 9.8.0 the file manager (telerik) is replaced with the new resourcemanager.

    Looks great but how can you:

    • Change folder permissions?
    • Make folder/files secure?

      Looks great but how can you:

      • [...]
      • Make folder/files secure?

      I don't think that this was ever possible, except when you create it.

      The only way that comes in my mind is to create a secure folder and move the files from the unsecure folder to the secure folder. Then delete the unsecure folder and rename the secure folder to the previous name of the unsecure folder.

      But this will propably break all links to the files in this folder, as the files in a secure folder always haf this "filename.ext.resource" schema, and will only be available using the LinkClick.aspx filehandler. I don't know if this is worth it, but when the files are really secret, it could be.

          Speaking of the new Resource Manager is there any way to change the layout instead of the obscenely large icon view, such as a standard list view?

            I don't think it can be changed at this time. But ... expect the Resource Manager to get a LOT of attention between now and the time that it becomes standard in DNN 10.

            The DNN team is quite aware of it's limitations. But getting in into DNN 9.8.0 is QUITE A FEAT, so let's enjoy it and wait for the frosting and candles to be added.)

              Joe,

              i agree, but I wonder why someone always tries to re-invent the wheel. For decades, a tree and a list have been the best solution to visualize a folder structure and containing files, and a practical solution to copy and move files inside that structure. So what's wrong with it now?

              This new layout is only practical for a handful of folders and files, but it is beta and hopefully this will change before the release, otherwise it will not be useable for most of my customer's sites, and we have to stay on that Telerik sh...

                Michael,

                My understanding is that the new Resources Manager was "gifted" to the project. Most of the work to get it into DNN was the work involved in replacing the Telerik components and that took precedence over other things.

                You'll also note that the new Resources Manager is not installed by default. I take that as a clear indicator that it's there for tire kicking and experimentation. But, it it suits your needs you can replace the existing Assets pages with the Resources Manager. Doing so removes the remaining Telerik vulnerabilities in the platform. Other modules may include Telerik features, so are not immune.
