File upload field in page creation problem.

edited October 2015 in Bug Reports
I have created a layout to use to create pages through the cms admin. In the layout I have a couple of fields for images to be uploaded. However, if I go to edit the content of the page, the fields are blank and if I save the page without reuploading the images to those fields, it saves them as blanks. How do i get the cms to not overwrite saved image data unless a new image is uploaded? or at least pre populate the field with what is currently saved.

    What is the layout fields code you have and is the assets/images folder writable by PHP?

    Yes the assets folder is writable. The image will upload and save just fine, it just isn't pre populated when you try to edit it at a later time and saving any other edits overwrites the saved image with a blank.

    This is my layout code example:
    $config['layout_fields']['landing_page'] = array(
    'logo' => array('type' => 'file', 'description' => 'Logo')

    There is a display_input parameter you can use:
