I'm using a regular DOM and I wanna change the upload folder, how would I do it?
I've seen that for FDOM it's easy... if $manager is FDOM manager then you just say $manafer->setUploadFolder("something"); but that method doesn't work for DOM, so what does?

Thank you!

I'm confused. DOM doesn't have an uploader, so why would you want to set the upload folder?

I have a DataObject that has 4 file upload fields/whatever. I am using DOM to handle the object, and it works (you said in another subject that using FDOM with multiple single file uploads is tricky or whatever, that I should use regular DOM). Now it all works, except that it chose /assets/uploads as default folder to upload files to, and I want it to be /assets/challenges.
Can you tell me how or can't it be done?
