Hello community.

I have been looking for a solution to enable sorting on multiple images uploaded via UploadField.
Sadly this didn't seem to exist (or I'm just too stupid to search properly?).

I wrote a small extension to the UploadField that adds sorting functionality to has_many relations. Download and instructions can be found here:

The implementation is still very basic. There's not much error-checking going on.. so if you encounter issues, please post them on github.
Hopefully this turns out to be useful for somebody... enjoy.

great, thanks a lot for releasing this!

Although this works like a charm,
i'd really love to see the possibility to sort items as a core feature in UploadField and GridField.
As it's one of the most common requirements when having for example multiple images, isn't it?
