U4-8671 - Media Types Missing in 7.4

Created by hrdfsique 29 Jun 2016, 15:59:05 Updated by Morten Christensen 11 Aug 2016, 09:04:02

Upgraded version 7.2.8 to 7.4.

All content is rendering fine.

All Media Types that were nested for type inheritance '''are now missing from the UI'''. They still exist in the database with all the correct relationships but cannot be modified in the back-office UI. This complete stops any further development (or changes).

I expected to see the same nesting as was kept with the Document types or at the very least, visible in the UI with the correct compositions. Preferrable to the nesting. Also, adding a folder to the media types library is new but there is no way to MOVE any existing media types to newly created folder.

It would be great if the Umbraco guys could address this issue... is this by design or is it a bug? I'm hoping bug, because the other option does not make sense. lol

@miked: It was actually by design that we initially decided to disable creating children for both document and media types. This was to encourage developers to use the composition features instead since it is the "better" way to make composited document types instead of relying on inheritance.

However due to a lot of people in the community not liking this change, we decided to go back to allowing inheritance and just being able to disable it through a configuration setting. It seems however that this change was not applied to media types as it was on document types.

I've just fixed it up and the change should make it out in v. 7.5.
