I have a Slideshow, which has many Images. (Particularly, Slideshow has_many SlideshowImage, and SlideshowImage has_one Image). The ImageField does not work with has_many relationship. What is the best way to have some has_many image chooser for CMS?

Thanks very much

Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but why do you need has_many images? Wouldn't you make a lot of SlideshowImage objects and give each one a single image?

The Slideshow would then have a relationship to each SlideshowImage, but not directly to any actual images..

The SlideshowImage has 'Sort' field, holding an information about the order of images in the slideshow. So, the link from Slideshow to Image is indirect through SlideshowImage.

I got it working, if I fill values in MySQL manually :-) My main problem is to make some nice multiple image chooser in the CMS.

Currently no such form control exists, unfortunately. You'd need to create a class similar to ImageField yourself. If you manage to get this sort us, let us know how you get on.
