Can't select an image using ImageField




13 December 2012 at 12:34am Community Member, 10 Posts

Hi all,

I've added an image to the Page class, but in the admin I can't select an image.
The dropdown combo in the admin won't expand, and I can't see any javascript errors. It's not styled properly either btw, see attached image.
The image is uploaded and it exists in the Files table. I've used a fresh, downloaded 3.0.3 install.
Here's the Page class:

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

   public static $has_one = array(
    'BackgroundImg' => 'Image',
function getCMSFields() {
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Main", new ImageField('BackgroundImg'));
return $fields;

Am I doing something wrong?

Best regards,
Ronald van Raaphorst
