After upgrading. Somehow value converters - even when set to false - added udi to obsolete datatypes (multinode treepicker, media picker etc.) that enter into nvchar(500) column of cmsPropertyData and vice versa. Not an intended situation.
IGNORE the above.
This seems to be a bug on my end with the value converters doing weird stuff, even though it's set to false. (7.6.3). Happened on 3 occasions from upgrading
Please don't switch to UDI pickers. If you want to use the new UDI pickers, create a new property and use them like they were always intended: as new properties.
There's absolutely no reason to switch to new pickers for upgraded sites, you're going to have to re-save each picked item individually and you'll need to update all your existing queries. For upgrades, keep using the legacy pickers, they work fine.
@sebastiaan Hi Seb, thanks for responding. Yea you're exactly right, there is no need to change Umbraco 7 - 7.5 properties, if you're using the converters. I think what happened is on the 7.6.2 upgrade attempt I had the bug causing the value converters to do the opposite of intended.
In the end I did create new properties on 7.6.3. I upgraded from 6.2.4 with lots of datatypes using old types such as uComponents. I made a couple of conversion scripts - converting ~1800 nodes during the upgrade process.
Difficulty: Very Easy
Backwards Compatible: True
