Ok kids, listen up. Since I'm crazy and all, I decided I can't wait till april to get this bug fixed for us Ubuntu users. I ripped out the SS file manager and replaced it with tesupload an ajax progress bar enabled file upload utility.

I still have NOT figured out the ss api function to update the Files table and the tinymce image manager!! Please someone tell me how.

edit... cms/templates/Includes/ and make it look like this
<iframe src="tesupload/html/upload-async.php" border="0" name="file_manager" id="file_manager" width="400" height="250"></iframe>

then extract the following file to your base site directory (outside of the silverstripe-2.0 dir but still in your web root. edit tesupload/html/upload-async.php and change <base href=""> to reflect your domain.

Then edit tesupload/html/receive_helper.php to change the upload/save paths.


Again any help getting the silver stripe Files table and the tinymce image manager to populate with the uploaded data would be very much appreciated!!!

P.S. You will also need Prototype to use my modification of tesupload.

Call File::sync() after the upload, and that will synchronise the File database with the assets folder.

Hey, ezgranny: first userdriven SS-customizations - awesome! :)
We actually found tesupload when refactoring the files&images sections a bit, but refrained from using it because it puts some additional requirements in silverstripe (perl).
do you know swfupload? - looks really promising.

Thanks! I plan to contribute as much as I can. That flash upload swf is awesome thanks for pointing it out to me. My goal is to live in a flash free universe someday soon but I'll definitely add this to my toolbox.

Could one of you please help me by telling me a few common reasons for the form page editor not functioning? Here is what happens when i click one of the new form field creator links.

Sam: Since I'm doing the upload through an iframe with a src outside the cms path where would be a good spot to call File::sync() without to much overhead? Also could you please tell me how to get the thumbnails to be generated in tinymce after File::sync() is called?

Thanks so much guys for your help.

Hm, thats hard to tell from the screenshot.
Please insert this line into <myproject>/_config.php:

You should get a more descriptive error-message then :)
