    Ambiguous call error when fetching an image url in the server

    Hi, This small piece of code works fine on my own machine in debug mode but crashes on the server:

    var defaultIconId = CurrentPage.GetPropertyValue("defaultIcon"); var defaultIconObject = Umbraco.Media(defaultIconId);

    The second line gives the following error:

    The call is ambiguous between the following methods or properties: 'Umbraco.Web.UmbracoHelper.Media(System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable

    Any clues? I may try setting the fetched "defaultIconId" to string but would like to know what is the approved way.

    Changing the top line to

    var defaultIconId = CurrentPage.GetPropertyValue

    did not help either. Still works fine on the local machine

    var defaultIconId = CurrentPage.GetPropertyValue<string>("defaultIcon");

    Sorry, I did try that. It didn't work. Then I tried ToString(). I think that did work but I have another issue with the database not refreshing and being unable to access the back office, so there was a null value.

    So I think I'll close the thread for now.
