SilverStripe module: Def_MailTools So, yesterday I was telling you about my adventures in Git. I linked to the first project I put onto GitHub. Today, I’m giving you some extra info on using it. It’s...
Over the last couple of months we have been working on quite a lot of websites. Also we could wrap up some codes as new SilverStripe modules, also could share the source codes on github. With the move we made to github last month it has been quite easy to share codes, and maintain them. We hope you would follow us there at github. https://github.com/SilverStripers/
SilverStripe's File, Folder and Image objects have a default sort of 'Name', 'Sort' and 'Name' respectively, but if you are also using Uncle Cheese's DataObjectManager the sort order will change to the 'SortOrder' field. Unless you've been sorting these yourself they're going to appear in the ImageField control in a more or less random order, which isn't idea. This post shows the solution.
And this is why we use Magento and Silverstripe. Because they are very user-friendly, simple and yet powerful platforms. From a development company perspective, we could add that they have very active communities and they bring new modules frequently. Obviously they are not perfect but they achieve what is essential: they are tools clients can actually use.
