    problems getting started with the dataobjectmanager Link to this post

    hi!
    I'm new to SS.. so far I really like it! installation and first steps went all fine, but now I'm having trouble:

    I just installed the dataobjectmanager module and tried to follow the tutorial...
    created the Testimonial.php and TestimonialPage.php, but after running dev/build and flush I still cannot see any changes to the cms...
    except one: when clicking on files & images I get an error, because I didn't manage to install the SWFupload so far...

    I also checked the file permissions, but that didn't help..

    thank you very much for your help!

    Hi

    Hmm. Actually, you should now be able to create a Testimonial Page.. does it show in the Page dropdown when you click on "Create"? If not, maybe a /admin/flush=1 will help.

    Hi and thanks for your reply!

    I tried admin/?flush=1, but nothing changed. I can only select Page, Error Page, Virtual Page and Redirector Page.

    I'm wondering: when I run /dev/build there's a list of database tables displayed - shouldn't this TestimonialPage be listed there as well? I can find Page, ErrorPage and so on, but no Testimonial..

    Any other ideas?

    And can anyone also help with the swfupload, please? I downloaded version 2.2.0.1, placed it in my silverstripe root folder and ran dev/build, but I still get the complaints, that swfupload is required..

    tia!

    Hm that's strange. Where did you put the Testimonial.php and TestimonialPage.php files? Could you post the contents of the TestimonialsPage.php?

    I put the files in /mysite/code within silverstripe root directory.

    In the meantime I tried a lot of things that were suggested elsewhere in this forum... I learned that the dataobject_manager and swfupload folder really need to be spelled exactly like this and I also downloaded an swf version that was suggested for download in one of the threads.

    This solved all my issues.

    Thank you very much for offering your help banal! I really appreciate that.

    Who is responsible for updating the tutorials? I'd argue that pointing out that the exact spelling of folder names is important, would hellp people save a lot of time. I was neither the first nor the last to have this kind of problem, I guess
