I've narrowed my problem down to not getting a ParentIDName when using the ImageDataObjectManager and it's causing my upload to fail (actually, the files are uploaded and save in the Files table, they're just not associated with the page). Here's my debug info:

and my code...

class PortfolioItem extends Page {
static $has_many = array(
'PortfolioImages' => 'PortfolioImage',

public function getCMSFields() {
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Images', new ImageDataObjectManager(

return $fields;

class PortfolioImage extends DataObject {

static $has_one = array(
'Image' => 'Image',

public function getCMSFields_forPopup() {
return new FieldSet(
new ImageField('Image')


Here's what I'm getting when echoing out a few things in FileDataObjectManager's UploadForm method:

echo $this->getParentClass();
echo $this->sourceClass();
echo $this->getParentIdName( $this->getParentClass(), $this->sourceClass() );

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

You set up your model wrong.

static $has_one = array(
'PortfolioItem' => 'PortfolioItem',
'Image' => 'Image',

Don't forget to reciprocate your has_many with a has_one. It's the has_one that counts.

Ahh, thanks :) That was killing me.
