    Social Media datatype isn't using images from legacy media picker

    Hey, I have a site that was upgraded from an Umbraco 7.4 to the latest 7.14 and in the process I upgraded to the latest SEOChecker. On one type of page the main image is based on the legacy Media Picker, and even though the Social Media datatype is associated with it, it's not picking up the image, instead forcing the user to set it again in the datatype.

    Migrating to the new Media Picker isn't an option at this point in time with over 800 posts which reference the media items by int instead of udi.

    Is this a known issue at the moment?

    Edit: This is also happening for a legacy image picker that provides for multiple images - is SEO Checker Social datatype able to pick up the first image from a list?

    Hi Robert,

    I haven't tested with Legacy pickers indeed but think it's not hard to extend. If you can provider the aliasses of the picker(s) I will add that to a hotfix next week.

    Best,

    Richard

    Hey Richard,

    The two Property Editors have aliases of:

    • Umbraco.MediaPicker
    • Umbraco.MultipleMediaPicker

    Ta, Rob

    Hi Rob,

    I cant add those pickers in the latest versions of Umbraco, but source code says the following pickers are supported "Umbraco.MultipleMediaPicker","Umbraco.MediaPicker2","Umbraco.MediaPicker","Umbraco.MultipleMediaPicker2" Weird that it doesn't show on your default values picker.

    Work around for you might be to render all metadata individually and use the media item from your picker when the value from SEOChecker is null.

    Best,

    Richard
