I'm trying to develop a tutorial from that uses Dataobject as pages. Here's the link to it:

Now in the tutorial (which I've used already in my projects) there's only one image per staff member, I want to associate 2 images per staff member (I've used products instead of staff members), I guess I need to use $has_many relation but when I try it doesn't work properly, it uploads the images but it doesn't associate them with the staff member (product in my case). Here's how I did it:

static $has_one = array (
   'ProductPage' => 'ProductPage'

static $has_many = array (
  'Photo1' => 'Image',
  'Photo2' => 'Image'

Anyone know how to do this?

Hi there!!

It´s remain me something I have used with my dataObject to upload multiple files.

Create a extra class:

class ProductImages extends File
static $has_one = array (

'yourDataObject' => 'yourDataObject'


Then your relations in yourDataObject should be like:

static $has_one = array (
'ProductPage' => 'ProductPage'

static $has_many = array (
'ProductImages ' => 'ProductImages'

In templates:

<% if ProductImages%>


<% control ProductImages%>

<a href="$Filename">$Title</a>

<% end_control %>

<% end_if %>

Then to make it better, in the getCMSFields you can limit the number of uploads per object
