Hi all,
I've just installed SilverStripe. I'm going through the tutorials and I'm stuck at the image upload in the "extending basic site tutorial".

After I enabled the image tab in the CMS by changing the StaffPage class as per tutorial when I try to upload an image it just doesn't show up nether in the CMS nor in the front-end. Of course I flushed the cache and rebuilt but no results. I'm using OS X, PHP 5.3.4 and Apache as webserver.

Any idea? Thanks in advance.

Hi Mauro74,

Welcome to the SSForum!

Is it possible to post the relevant code please, it's a bit hard to workout what might be the problem without that... there is also a lot of help with debugging in this thread...

Hi Swaiba I just found out why it wasn't working, it was because I had no writing permission on the upload folder and because I wasn't running the website in dev mode I couldn't see what the error was!
