Hi everyone, I'm having some troubles uploading a simple image on a simple page.php... I did everything I need to do, and I'm 100% sure my code is correct, but I'm still having a weird error, I enclosed a .JPG on which you can see the error, it's a JQuery error, but I can't find out why I'm getting it :/

It looks like this is a Json error, but seriously, why? O_O

EDIT : I'm doing this on a fresh install of the latest update of SS..

Btw, here's the code I used to create the image, just to make sure :)

private static $has_one = array(
'Photo' => 'Image'

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

$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Main", new UploadField('Photo'));

return $fields;

Thank you :-)

Wow this is weird, when I change the "new UploadField('Photo')" to "new UploadField('whatever'), I don't get the error anymore (but of course, I can't upload a picture hum..).

It doesn't make sense at all ^^'

And I don't get the error anymore if I empty my "silverstripe-cache" folder, but I still can't get the upload to work..
