Yes, I could even have been trying to change the code accordingly myself, in the end php is my first programming language even though in the meantime I wrote more Java...
But the next few days or maybe even weeks I'll not come to look at it again - but subscribed to the announcements, so I'll not forget to check one of the next versions :)

Cooll you fixed the issue so fast - seems Silverstripe support is better and faster than I thought :)

No worries - we were all on holiday 1-4 January, and thanks for explaining your issue on the forum so that we could resolve it :)

hey guys,
I finally came to check the 2.3.0 rc4 release, and it works fine now!
I'll see if I canm use it for a friend's artist website - drupal sucked here, because it's hard to get a wysiwyg editor for pages that does proper referencing of pages and images - so, I need a images and pages choser that then creates proper links, and they should keep on working even though the site installation path changes.

The next thing I wonder is, if we can get a custom database table name prefix.
So I can host multiple sites in a single database and tell them apart by the first part of their name.

But yeah, these are two things for a new thread, I guess ;)
