Hi Silverstripers,

Somehow I can't find a way to get thisone working;

I extended Page with a has_many relation to multiple Files and overwritten getCMSFields to show an uploadfield in the CMS.
I use Silverstripe 3.02.

Everything looks fine in the CMS; users can upload one or more files on this page and the upload field automaticaly expands to handle more files to upload. All files have an edit- and an delete-button next to it. But somehow these buttons magicaly dissapear when the user saves & publishes the page. And they never come back.... :(

I looked everywhere on Google, but can't find anybody having the same problem.

A solution or workaround to this problem is highly appreciated!!

This is my code:

class pageWithDocs extends Page {
	static $has_many = array(
		'AttachedDocuments' => 'File'
	public function getCMSFields() {
		$fields = parent::getCMSFields();

		$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Main', new UploadField('AttachedDocuments', 'Documenten', $this->AttachedDocuments()));
		return $fields;

Try changing your relationship from a $has_many to a $many_many. I know it doesn't really make sense but it seemed to help me when i was having issues with UploadField. don't forget to /dev/build!
