I have SS 2.3.1 installed (which has swfupload installed). I have then added Data object Manager 1.4.8 and then Image Gallery1.4.1

It all seemed to install fine but I get the message DataObjectManager requires the SWFUpload module when I try to create a gallery page. Do I need to upgrade the version of swfupload that comes with SS2.3.1 to Or is there something else I need to do

Hmm.. All it should be checking for is whether the class SWFUploadField exists. Did you do a flush=1 after you put the swfupload folder in your Silverstripe root?

In your _config.php, try adding SWFUploadConfig::debug(); and see if it throws a class not found error.

hello, i had the same problem.
yes, there is an "swfupload" folder in "jsparty" folder, but the swfupload module does not come with ss2.3.1, right?

hum.. i searched in forums, i searched in modules area.. i realy did not found your postet swfupload module.. so i downloaded all files from your trunk:

If someone else need this module, just download here and place it into SS ROOT Folder.

and now my gallerie works fine! :D

(unclecheese, if you want me to delete this file from my server, just tell me!)

hmm.. in this RAR file, the files does end with ".js.txt"

after or before uploading you have to make the ".js.txt" to ".js"

Did that fix it? Removing the .txt? I have no idea why it would have a .txt extension in the first place. I'll look at it.

hm.. i did not found YOUR uploaded swfupload module, so i saved all files from your TRUNK.
i think when i save files from the trunk they are TXT files.

Hi Uncle Cheese and SalvaStripe

Thank you both for your help. I was of the misunderstanding that the swfload folder that came with 2.3.1 was enough. The new file provided everything is working as it should.

I had the same issue - the stuff that is linked from the documentation is not a working version of swfupload. Maybe the documentation can be updated or the correct version of swfupload an be added to the official downloads via the modules page?
