When I try to add a FileUploadField to my backend. But it seems to has some problems. I tried it in FF8.0 and Chrome

class Home extends Page {
	static $icon = "themes/luckychocolate/images/treeicons/home";
   	static $db = array();
   	static $has_one = array(
   		'TestFile' => 'File'
   	function getCMSFields(){
   		$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
		$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.File', new FileUploadField('TestFile', 'Upload a file'));   		
		return $fields;

That's how the field looks like:


If I click on the tabs, nothing seems to happen. After choosing a file, the filename will be displayed next to the Browse-button and nothing happends. In the "File & Images" section the form looks the same.

Looks like you have a Javascript error somewhere. Check the console.

Hi Xazen,

Did you figure this out? We are having a similar problem. We installed DataObjectManager and Uploadify and ever since then, when we try to upload files (even from the standard Files & Images tab in the admin mode, we can select a file exactly like you but then nothing happens and no files get uploaded.

I'm having this same problem with the Files & Images tab. I've checked the console, but I'm not seeing any errors. Does anybody have suggestions on where else to check?

Hallo guys,

I found the same issue. The solution was very easy. Change the folder's name from Uploadify to uploadify.
