Hi everyone,

I've got a problem with importing images from the existing folders and wonder if someone can help me on this. Here are the steps, 1) I click on File & Images, then select a folder for example called Uploads, 2) I choose 'Add files to Uploads' button, it will ask me to upload from my computer or import from an existing folder. 3) When I try to import an image from an existing folder, the message - "SecurityID doesn't match, possible CSRF attack." comes up, and I can't go any further.

I've never experienced this before, and wonder if someone can point me to the right direction to solve the problem. I can copy some code here if you let me know which part, and I'm using SilverStripe 2.4.1

Thank you very much for your help.

I've received this when purchasing something before using the ecommerce module... it seems to relate to losing the session. Try logging back in and trying again.

Hi Idolyz,

Thanks for your reply, I logged the back in again but still no luck. What do you mean by losing the session? Any other suggestions?

Thanks heaps.

You lose the session from being inactive for a certain period of time or there are other ways too, but I don't think this is your reason...

Sorry I can't help out much more.
