In the MODx WYSIWYG whenever I click the Image icon to insert an image, followed by browse image it generates the wrong path: /data/12/1/111/99/1111262/user/1169144/htdocs/images/image.jpg instead of assets/images/image.jpg

I have checked my Resource URL and Resource Path and they both look correct. Has anyone ever experienced MODx rewriting your paths to the server vs what it should be?

Many people look to Tools > Configuration > Interface & Features for the Resource Path and Resource URL, however, it is also directly related to the Web User logged in as.

If you go to Security > Manage Users Select your username and go to User You will notice there are the same Resource Path and Resource URL These need to be correct as well.
