    Media Items (custom) with multiple Uploads


    Great product by the way (especially uSync!), just wanted to feedback a issue which has affected me with uSync.ContentEdition.

    We specifically have a custom Media Item called Art Work, which have more than one file upload attached to it. We have additional ones for thumbnails that can be cropped differently (which is why we have to have them as seperate files as we cant just resize the main one down).

    Here is an example of how the .media file looks:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

    <ArtWork guid="911bd841-6020-4598-9aa5-3fc704e52441" id="1064" nodeName="Little blue (40cm x 40cm)" isDoc="" updated="2015-03-13T11:38:51.297Z" parentGUID="e86b4a26-628c-43c5-9590-75bc6530b771" mediaTypeAlias="ArtWork" path="-1,1061,1064">





      <price><![CDATA[$1,600 NZD]]></price>





    Anyway so what I have noticed is that the extra uploads files don't get picked up and placed in the uSync/Files folder, in the above case no "/media/1007/little_blue_40x40cms_-1600_thumb.jpg" got placed in the Files to transfer across.

    If you need anymore information let me know, or if this is open source and you'd like me to contribute and try to resolve this then let me know as well :) would be happy to contribute to the project.

    Thanks, Carl

    at the moment content edition only looks for the umbracoFile property and assumes any media item files are going into that,

    the FileHelper.ImportMediaFile function does all the work [ ] - but it would need some logic rebuilding i think to be able to extract and then remember what files went where before putting them back in - all doable i think, just not something i have time to fix just now...

    I've add it to the issue list - so its there for me to get around to
