Hey Guys

I'm using the FileDataObjectManager and have (I guess) 1 simple Problem.

I created a FileDataObject Called "Downloads" where I can add some Files to download.
When I creat another Page with the Download section included and add there different Files the output looks like:


added blabla.pdf
output -> blabla.pdf

Testsite 2
added blua.pdf
output -> blabla.pdf



class Download extends DataObject {

static $db = array (
'Name' => 'Text',

static $has_one = array (
'Attachment' => 'File',
'ImageGalleryPage' => 'ImageGalleryPage'

public function getCMSFields_forPopup()
return new FieldSet(
new TextField('Name'),
new FileIFrameField('Attachment')



$manager = new FileDataObjectManager(
array (
'Name' => 'Name'

function Download() {
$DownloadData = DataObject::get("Download","ID = ".$this->ID); //I Also tried "Download","ParentID = ".$this->ID
return $DownloadData;

Is there a solution for this? I only want to Publish the Files from the Current Sites.

Sorry for my bad english

Best regards aTTi

...Solved my Problem.

For others:

The Problem was, there are 3 "ID's" in the Database


So i just had to rewrite the function Download like:

function Download() {
$DownloadData = DataObject::get("Download","ImageGalleryPageID = ".$this->ID);
return $DownloadData;

Best regards,

Your function isn't necessary, because you already have a relation defined as "Downloads"..

$this->Downloads() will give you what you need.
