Created about a year ago by JamesBarnsleyHow-tos3 comments – viewed 6,906 times – ( +3 ) – version 1.1
As a lead developer at Mutable Labs I was tasked to find a way to do recursive deletion in Yii. As I asked other developers and looked around the internet the usual answers all came up, use a plugin or use cascade delete at the DB level, but I did not want to do either of these.

Load the Yii-Bootstrap Extension on Specific Actions

Created about a year ago by chuntleyHow-tos5 comments – viewed 14,912 times – ( +10 ) – version 1.1
A big problem I've hit with the Yii-Bootstrap extension is that all AJAX requests are initializing Bootstrap because of preload. This is a huge waste of resources, especially when using AJAX-based file uploaders that split the file into chunks. Large file uploads using that method could be initializing bootstrap hundreds of times.

Hey guys, I'm hoping other people will find this helpful. Today I went through the process of adding CKEditor to one of my projects, and then integrating KCFinder as the image uploader. It will be used in a CActiveForm, without the use of any crazy weird widgets. All paths are relative, using Yii functions, so this will work no matter where you install. Here it is:

Syncing sessions between Yii and KCFinder

Created about a year ago by Thanasis FotisHow-tos7 comments – viewed 5,158 times – ( +1 ) – version 1.1
Info: As KCFinder's documentation mentions, if your application (Yii in our case) session handling is using the PHP environment configuration - meaning no change in session handling at all, then no change is needed also on KCFinder side to be able to use this session and thus have this simple interface between your Yii webapp and KCFinder. If that's your case then you probably need not read the rest of this article but rather just make sure that before a user attempts to upload or browse your server a session variable is already set for him (or her) with his specific configuration already waiting for KCFinder there. What can this session interface be useful for? For example, for having per-user upload directory. You could have uploadURL variable established in the session variable to contain the user's id. When an upload or browse use case will occur, the client side will trigger the KCFinder completely decoupled from the Yii application. Yet, since you've already synced your user-specific-configuration with KCFinder via the session, KCFinder will pick it up and use it.
