    Tip: Use SiteConfig to enable DOM in Assets Link to this post


    with DOM enabled users can not drag and drop files to other folders in "Files & Images".
    There is a setting to disable DOM for the assets folder: DataObjectManager::allow_assets_override

    Since one of our customers wants dom enabled most the time, but sometimes needs to move files we added a config option for him:
    Create a file named "CustomAssetAdmin.php":

    class CustomAssetAdmin extends DataObjectDecorator {
    function init() {
          $config = SiteConfig::current_site_config();

    Add the option to your siteconfig: "CustomSiteConfig.php":

    class CustomSiteConfig extends DataObjectDecorator {

    function extraStatics() {
    return array(
    'db' => array(
                'DomAllowAssetsOverride' => 'boolean'

    public function updateCMSFields(FieldSet &$fields) {
    $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Settings', new CheckBoxField('DomAllowAssetsOverride','DOM in "Dateien und Bilder" verwenden?'));    }

    Add these to your _config.php

    DataObject::add_extension('SiteConfig', 'CustomSiteConfig');
    Object::add_extension('AssetAdmin', 'CustomAssetAdmin');

    That gives your users the option to enable/disable DOM for the assets folder on demand.
