Thanks. I've contacted Silverstripe about the problem. Seems like something broke on their end.

<br >wasn't sure where I should post this error and I didn't really want to make a new thread, since I can figured you must have your hands full with all the current threads due to the new release. I really have no idea how to create this problem, as for as I'm concerned this is an error that occurred after I updated to the latest SilverStripe release. I even tried wiping out the database and rebuilding it. I also get a strange warning when attaching an image as the cover image of an album. Not sure if other people are having the same problem, as I searched the forum and couldn't find anything. I would give the link to the website, but unfortunately it's still on my local machine and I don't have a server to put it on yet :(

Interesting. I've updated the function that was using the pass by reference. I don't have a dev box to test on right now. Can you run an svn update and see if that fixes the bug?

Well the warning was fixed to fix it all you have to do is go in php.ini and find "allow_call_time_pass_reference" and change the value to On. The warnings disappeared after that, but I still have the error crashing my website. I do have the latest version of all the modules.

Yeah the update fixed the warnings.

One of my friends helped me debug the error, and we came up with a solution, not sure if it's the best one though.

$files = DataObject::get(
   singleton(str_replace("_Controller","",$this->class))->itemClass, //This line is the problem itemClass is a protected value
   "AlbumID = {$current_album->ID} AND ImageGalleryPageID = {$this->ID}",

we replaced this line with

and we also created a method in the ImageGalleryPage

public function getItemClass()
   return $this->itemClass;

And everything works now, as far as I can see.

Hey guys,

Apologies if this has been covered earlier, I went back a fair way but didnt see anything like what I'm asking.

Is there a way to get the last 5 uploaded images from all albums, and display square cropped images? This would be from both the albums page, and also a homepage pagetype.

Cheers in advance
