Maybe I didn't explain it clear enough..:)

In I'm trying to list out those 3 article's with the first image.

Image - Article 1
Image - Article 2
Image - Article 3
..and so on..

So the code you're using is

<% control Children %>
<% control ArticleBilder.First %>
<% end_control %>
<% end_control %>

Here is all of the code for the images:


       <% if GetArticleFirstImage %>
         <% control GetArticleFirstImage %>   
            <% control Attachment.First %>
            <% end_control %>
         <% end_control %>
         <% else %>
            <a href="$Link"><img src="themes/tutorial/images/blank.jpg" /></a>
         <% end_if %>

In ArticleHolder.php

   function GetArticleFirstImage($num=1){
   $manager = DataObject::get_one("ArticlePage");
   return ($manager) ? DataObject::get("ArticleBilde", "ArticlePageID = $this->ID", "SortOrder", "", $num) : false;

In ArticlePage.php

$manager = new ImageDataObjectManager(
            'Name' => 'Bildenavn',
            'Description' => 'Beskrivelse'

And your ArticleBilde class?

Forgot that one..


In ArticleBilde.php

class ArticleBilde extends DataObject
   static $db = array (
      'Name' => 'Text',
      'Description' => 'Text',
   static $has_one = array (
      'Attachment' => 'File',
      'ArticlePage' => 'ArticlePage'
   public function getCMSFields_forPopup_articlebilder()
      return new FieldSet(
         new TextField('Name'),
         new TextareaField('Description'),
         new FileIFrameField('Attachment')

I have tried to get this to work with a fresh install of SS and just starting from scratch, but I still can't get the images to show up in the

I've done this before, the only different is that I used DataObjectManager to manage a simple list of urls, and used this function to output it to the template:

   function GetLinksInternal(){
   $LinksPage = DataObject::get_one("LinksPage");
   return ($LinksPage) ? DataObject::get("InternalLink", "LinksPageID = {$LinksPage->ID}") : false;

And this works perfectly anywhere on the website, but when I do the same when I use imagedataobjectmanager or the filedataobjectmanager it only shows the content added in the imagedataobjectmanager or the filedataobjectmanager when you are on the right page.

I think I have found out why this isn't working.
Its the Get function, this part isnt right: ArticlePageID = $this->ID. When I just have ArticlePageID, all of the ArticleBilde are showing in a list. SS doesn't know what do get and doesn't output anything..

I'm not that good at programming this kind of things, so how should I do this when I have an articleholder with serveral ArticlePages with images added to them, something like this:

Articleholder -> ArticlePage1 -> ArticleBilde1,ArticleBilde2,ArticleBilde2,
-> ArticlePage2 -> ArticleBilde1,ArticleBilde2,
-> ArticlePage3 -> ArticleBilde1,ArticleBilde2,

Heres the function:

function GetArticleFirstImage(){
$manager = DataObject::get_one("ArticlePage");
return ($manager) ? DataObject::get("ArticleBilde", "ArticlePageID = $this->ID", "SortOrder") : false;
