Hey guys, I've got a site that is about to go live and handed to the client, but for some reason I keep having this one problem.

I can not create a new folder either through the Files & Images tab, or through the Insert an Image tool...

The asset folder is currently set to 777 and everything, i can upload files, it can resample them, everything except create a folder...

any help would be much appreciated!

can you create the directory via FTP and have it appear in the CMS?. As long as assets is chmod 777 you shouldnt have any issues.. Do you get any error messages from SilverStripe when you are creating the folder?

Yeah, it seems like the same problem as Fuzz10, I can add directories just fine (i have to create the _resampled folder) and they show up in the cms.

Ill give that patch a try tomorrow while I'm at work and let you know how it works.
