    Cannot select file "You must select a parent"

    Hello. In recent days, our live installation of DAMP has started giving the error "You must select a parent" even though you have. 

    When exploring further, I can see on our live server - but not our dev server - that the following module is broken and causing a 301 loop.

    Within /umbraco/plugins/DigibizAdvancedMediaPicker/CreateMediaItem.aspx

    This reference fails: /WebResource.axd?d=Kl9MwY1QdirXSaRg_HQ_Qqb-LFbrphPVlwcFtIdO2n45CaV1vz96RSI3BY-8HZ-KBo7BAUnjYti405aqDU3UEGmPYv4OvaJMnGx-H4PvqdRtYkvZHVR-ZpIGyDYSXkrVa2PtUz9WKFd4CVjLJ9-dlg2&t=635088721003676287

    The other WebResources appear to load fine. The failure of this resource to load has a snowball effect that causes "Uncaught TypeError: Object [object Object] has no method 'DigibizPicker' "

    I have not made changes to the live site in weeks and I don't think anyone else has been making code changes. Only the client with their usual Content management.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    UPDATE: Looking at the same working file on the development site I can see that it is the file with the code:

    //Jquery plugin for our tree picker.
    $.fn.DigibizPicker = function (ctlId, umbPath, treeType, isCreateTree, selectStartNode, selectMultipleNodes, allowedExtensions, allowedMediaTypes, noAccessId, cropPropertyAlias, cropName, searchEnabled, autoSuggestEnabled, searchMethod, startNodeId)

    Answering my own ticket here. This had absolutely nothing to do with DAMP. It turns out one of my URL Rewrites in Umbraco's UrlRewriting.config was incomplete. My redirect for old .php files did not terminate with a $ on the end, and the WebResource reference above has the string "phP" in it.

    Hopefully this information may help somebody in the future.

    Hi all, I was just trying to use the picker (2.0) for Umbraco 6.0.5. I received the error above. I was using Google Chrome, but once I used Firebox, it worked.

    DAMP 2.0 has issues with Umbraco v6. It's recommended to upgrade to DAMP 2.7 which fixed many issues.
