    ImageDataObjectManager doesn't add images first time Link to this post

    I'm experiencing an error with ImageDataObjectManager that I can't work out. I'm using the same code on my development server (Windows) and live server (*nix). Code works on dev server, but not on live server.

    Using an ImageDataObjectManager to add photographs to a page. After choosing existing image(s) I click continue. In the Editing file 1 of 2 page the image isn't show. The image not present icon is shown in editor.

    I expected it to be an issue with rights in the assets folder, but if I click on one of the images that failed to add, I can then select the image successfully using the Image selector in the popup and a thumbnail appears (on resizing the thumbnails, they are correctly re-generated).

    For what it's worth uploading a file through ImageDataObjectManager doesn't work either. However, uploading through Files & Images with DOM does work on both dev and live without issues.

    Any clue to what the solution could be is appreciated!

       static $has_many = array(
             // snip
          'Images' => 'ImageResource'

       function getCMSFields() {
          $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
             // snip
    $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Photos", new ImageDataObjectManager(
             $this, // Controller
             'Images', // Source name
             'ImageResource', // Source class
             'Image', // File name on DataObject
                'Name' => 'Name',
                'Description' => 'Description',
                'Maker' => 'Maker',
                'Email' => 'Contact email (auto anti-spam)',
                'Rights' => 'Free to publish?'
             ), // Headings
             // snip
          return $fields;

    class ImageResource extends DataObject {
       static $db = array (
          'Name' => 'Text',
          'Description' => 'Text',
          'Maker' => 'Text',
          'Email' => 'Text',
          'Rights' => 'Boolean'

       static $has_one = array (
          'Image' => 'Image',
          'Species' => 'Species'

       public function getCMSFields_forPopup()
          return new FieldSet(
             new TextField('Name'),
             new TextareaField('Description'),
             new TextField('Maker'),
             new TextField('Email', 'Contact email (auto anti-spam)'),
             new CheckboxField('Rights','Free to publish?'),
             new FileUploadField('Image')

       function onBeforeWrite() {
          $this->Email = str_replace(array("@", "."), array("(at)", "(dot)"), $this->Email);


    Using latest versions of both DOM (commit: dc7bb4...) and uploadify (commit: 1254c6...)
