I can get uploadify to work perfectly in the back end, with files being added fine, but when I go to the front end, i get the following:

[User Error] Uncaught Exception: Object->__call(): the method 'fortemplate' does not exist on 'File'
GET /silverstripe/?isDev=1

FYI

page.php:

<?php
class Page extends SiteTree {
   
   public static $db = array(                  
      );

   public static $has_one = array(
                        
      'BannerImage' => 'File',
      'PagePhoto' => 'File',
   );
   
   function getCMSFields() {
      $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
         $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new FileUploadField('BannerImage','Banner Image'), 'Content');
         $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new FileUploadField('PagePhoto','Page Photo'), 'Content');
      return $fields;
   }

}
class Page_Controller extends ContentController {

   public static $allowed_actions = array (
   );
   
   public function init() {
      parent::init();

      Requirements::themedCSS('layout');
      Requirements::themedCSS('typography');
      Requirements::themedCSS('form');
      
   }
}

If you look closely, that error isn't coming from Uploadify. It's coming from your template. Looks like you're trying to render a File object as output.

Thanks for getting back to me, sorry Uncle Cheese, but im a bit of a Noob...

This makes sense as the file is uploaded and used as the header image in my page.ss template, is this not allowed? Is there a $BannerImage.SOMETHING that would render the file (image) out as an image?

Many (many) thanks for your help
+ thanks for your tutorials and video screencasts you provide for the community.

Images have a forTemplate() method, but files don't. For File objects, you have to do something like:

<a href="$File.URL">Download ($File.Size) [$File.Extension]</a>

So I shouldnt use uploadify to assign images to a variable? Apologies if this is obvious, i wanted to use uploadify as the UI is much cleaner for me/my client to use.

Sure, of course you can. Just cast those relationships as 'Image' instead of file. And instead of "FileUploadField", use "ImageUploadField"
