For clarification: We're running SilverStripe 2.4.0 for a client with DataObjectManager (version from around the end of May, 2010).
In the back-end, the client would like to have the uploaded files lists to be sorted by the upload date, descending - i.e. the most recently uploaded image to be located at the top of the list. The default setting is the reverse order.
I've been searching through the boards and trying to hunt down the template / class responsible for displaying the right-hand side of the "Files & Images" part of SilverStripe ("admin/assets/") but haven't had any luck.
Could anyone point me in the right direction? I assume that the solution would be something along the lines of editing the initialization of a DataObjectManager object in the right class.
