Hi Uncle Cheese

I appear to have found a strange bug whereby if you use an image DOM and a normal DOM on the same page, the drag and drop reordering on the normal DOM does not work. As soon as I change the ImageDOM to a FileDOM it then the normal DOMs re-ordering starts working.

When I say it doesnt work, you can check the box and as you hover over the items you get the multi directional arrow, but when you try to drag them it does nothing. I assume it must be a JS conflict of some sort?

What is strange is that I am also running the image gallery which has a normal DOM for albums and a ImageDOM for images yes seems to work fine....

Many thanks

I also ran into this problem again today. Situation:

Page.php with ImageDOM
HomePage.php extends Page.php and adds DOM

SortableDataObject::add_sortable_class('Photo'); in _config.php
SortableDataObject::add_sortable_class('HomePageLink'); in _config.php

Now with this setup I was not able to reorder the DOM on the HomePage page type.

Solution (work-around):

I removed the ImageDOM in Homepage.php:


Now I was able to reorder the DOM on the HomePage page type.

Found solution. Drag-and-drop ONLY seems to break if ImageDOM tab is added before DOM tab. If ImageDOM is added after normal DOM everything seems to work fine:

public function getCMSFields() {
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();

// Add DOM tab

// Add ImageDOM tab

return $fields;

This was fixed a few revs ago. See "OMG New Stuff" thread.
