Well time for me to move on to the next part of SS learning curve (love it by the way, excellent CMS), before when i have wanted to show images on a page i have added an upload field for each image into the CMS and called them into the template in such a way as:


and so on, each call already wrapped in its own div, but now im wanting to go further im finding that this isnt giving me a lot of flexibility.

Is there a way that i can have one image upload field (not wanting to clutter up CMS) and just one call, IE: $Allimages, where the div is not already coded into the page but actualy gets attached to each image when called at the frontend.

Check out DataObjectManager or ComplexTableField. You can attach dataobjects through has_many in the model and then add 1 or many images to a particular page.

Yea ive done it with dataobject manager as well. See the tutorials for dataobject manager. The resource example is a great starting point to create an easy repeater for images.

I included an example i made not too long ago wich is a basic image repeater with title and description. Very basic. Maybe it will help you create what you want.

Thanks to both of you for your input, i had a feeling that Data Object Manager was going to be the way forward as it seems to be the logical next step.

@ Dusky,

always helps to have a working code example for a reference, thanks

just to clarify uploadify is a stand alone module for this, dataobjectmanager uses that i think - both excellent, but when only one is required I'd use one
