I'm having a problem with the Image DOM, It appears to have issues accessing Directory with a dash (-) in the name. The files in that dir are accessible from the rest of the CMS, and if I move them to directory without a dash in the name they're accessible from the DOM.

Firebug reports a 500 error when I try to access those directories. Its not a critical bug (I can just change the naming structure), but I thought you should know. I'm running on MAMP right now, I haven't rolled the site out to my full testing server yet.

What do you mean by "accessible from DOM?"

I'm setting Internal Server Errors when trying to access certain folders through the "Import from an existing folder" dropdown in a nested ImageDataObjectManager. However if I try to add images from those folders through the standard HTMLEditor field, I have no problems

We think we've found a bug in SWFUpload/FileDataObjectManager. It's caused when a user without full admin rights tries to upload a file in "Files & Images" through an SWFUploadField.

SS 2.4.0 / 2.4.1
Latest DOM and SWFUpload modules
User with access to CMSMain, AssetAdmin, Reports and Comments. No full admin rights.

When selecting a file in the SWFUpload field and pressing "Upload", the request freezes on processing. With the use of the SWFUpload debug mode and some var_dump()'ing we've located that the permission check in FileDataObjectManager.php line 587 checks for the wrong permission. The checked for permission is


when it should be

We've tried and tested this and it works normally now without errors.

Users with full admin rights automatically pass the Permission::check() function because they've got access to all parts of the CMS and the function automatically adds the "ADMIN" role to check for.

Hi .

Found a bug in sorting order of dataobject displayed in the CMS - DOM view. (List View)

Set up:

  • Any DataObjectManager with minimal configuration (one text field).
  • At least 2 dataobjects items added.
  • Enabled - SortableDataObject::add_sortable_class('YourSortedClass'); in _config.php.
  • Default ordering configuration is -- Ascending


  • Click any of the items in the list, so popup window will appear.
  • Close it right after. (no save needed)
  • After refresh the items are in reverse order -- Descending

The order will be ok again after reloading the page in cms, but after opening the popup again, will change as before.

Revisions // Where to fix.
This bug was introduced in r419 - in DataObjectManager.php..
In the current revision r432 is on line '246' - in DataObjectManager.php

To fix it - REMOVE

on line 246.

another notes
- When trying to define the Sorting order in _config.php with SortableDataObject::set_sort_dir("ASC");
or DESC .. it wont change anything
- Not sure if the removed part is important in other parts of the code..

UncleCheese can you review the code, thanks also for the great work.

-- to see more cleary changes of the order add SortOrder values from the db to the view

public function getCMSFields()
		$f = parent::getCMSFields();
		$manager = new DataObjectManager(
			$this, // Controller
			'GalleryImages', // Source name
			'GalleryImage', // Source class
				'SortOrder' => 'Order',
				'Title' => 'Názov'

        $f->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', $manager);
		return $f;

Thanks, nakashu,

I actually added that in a few revs ago because it fixed this problem on several sites. I'll do some more digging and get back to you.

I "think" there might be an issue with SilverStripe 2.4.1 and the SWFUpload module. I can upload without a hitch using 2.4.0, but in 2.4.1 on numerous sites it just sits at "Uploading...". I tried some of the other recommended fixes where people have previously had this issue but none of them seem to resolve it.

Here's the SWFUpload debug:
