Having an issue with one of my site in that the files folder doesn't show the full list of images/files, it show's the first page but when i click to the next page it goes blank, it's the same when using the image upload box. There's no error showing on the files page in the cms but the upload box shows

Uncaught exception Error {stack: (...), message: "cannot call methods on selectable prior to initialization; attempted to call method 'destroy'"} in onunmatch on
<tbody class=​"ss-gridfield-items">​…​</tbody>​


Stack Trace:
Error: cannot call methods on selectable prior to initialization; attempted to call method 'destroy'

Has anyone else experienced this? I'm a bit of a beginner with most coding languages at present so laymen's terms would be appreciated ;-)

Thanks for anyone that can help.

Strange error. But if there is a problem with uploading files, check the permission of the upload folder and subfolders where the images are stored. Permission of all folder should be 777.

Permissions are all set to 777 and there's no problem uploading the files it just won't go past page 2/3 in the list of files, i've attached screen shots of what is happening, I don't get any other errors in dev mode either.

What you could try is to upgrade Silverstripe to the latest version.
Just make a backup of your files before upgrading.
If the upgrade break your system, you can easily set it back.

I actually tried that thanks

It turned out my client had uploaded a couple of files that were too big but it didn't show the usual error at first until they uploaded a third large file, once I deleted the files it all started working again.

Thanks for the repsonses
