Hi, I'm new to SilverStripe and I want to upload Files such as doc, docx, pdf, txt as well as jpg, png...
what is a good way to do this?

I currently have this,

class ResourcesPage extends Page {
   static $db = array(
   static $has_one = array(
      'UploadedFile' => 'File',
      'UploadedImage' => 'Image'
   public function populateDefaults(){
   public function getCMSFields() {
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
      $fileUpload = new UploadField( 'UploadedFile', 'Select PDF file' );
      $imageUpload = new UploadField( 'UploadedImage', 'Select image' );
      $fields->addFieldToTab( 'Root.Files', $fileUpload );
      $fields->addFieldToTab( 'Root.Files', $imageUpload );

return $fields;
class ResourcesPage_Controller extends Page_Controller {

Is it possible to have one UploadField that can upload a File/Image?

in my template

      <a href="$UploadedFile.Link" >Download Link</a>
      <a href="$UploadedImage.Link" >Download Link</a>

In the front end, a link will be provided so the user can download the File/Image

not sure about the

   static $has_one = array(
      'UploadedFile' => 'File',
      'UploadedImage' => 'Image'

any suggesstions? :)

The new UploadField does support multiple files.

You currently have it setup using a $has_one relationship which will only allow it one file. Change it to a $many_many and you will be able to upload as many files as you want, both images and files. No need to setup 2 different relationships for image and file. Then just loop through your template to access the files.
