I'm also unable to confirm. I've tried with Safari on 10.5, and Firefox on XP. This is with a 2.3.1 install. Unfortunately I can't say which SVN snapshot of DOM I have right now. It is at least a week old, if not a bit older.

@martimiz - I like that idea, but I'm not sure why a single file needs a whole popup. Why not just clean up the look of the ImageField and have it implement SWFUpload? As it is, a file input generates a popup window on its own (an OS dialog box, that is). So it seems unnecessary to have another one. I would definitely like to do more with the SWFUploadField, though. I love the idea of being able to filter MIME types for clients.

Always looking for new stuff to add on, so thanks for the input!

Thanks for the help guys! Upon further inspection it seems that was a fluke. I re-removed the dm folder and the issue did not go away this time. Weird!

Thanks guys. UncleCheese for president! lol

NINJA EDIT:// It seems the files and images section is having the same issue. I must be missing some files or something.

Just that I thought - if you have the popup, why not use it. It would make the page's forms a whole lot cleaner. Normally you'd have title, alt, description etc for every image, that would clutter up the page with large fieldgroups. Why only use popups for collections? Why would that be too much overhead?

rereading I think maybe I didn't make myself clear after all? So I'd just want to keep the same popup, but link it to another tab-field that is simply a one image editor. I don't want a new popup :-)

Does anyone know why this isn't working?

sprintf(_t('DataObjectManager.ADD', 'Add %s'),$this->PluralTitle())

Just returns "Add"

(I'm new to i18n stuff)

That is actually something that the community could really do with, we should think about having awards like 'member of the month' and 'Silverstripe Website of the month'. I think that would really encourage more participation.

That's a great idea and something that I have been thinking about to get it started? ....i'll get in touch with SS and see if they are keen.

I recently implemented a new DataObjectManager function into my site, and when I click the "Add" button, I get a blank lightbox popup. I posted about this here. Any ideas?

Is your error reporting turned up? Sounds like a PHP error to me.
