Media Files linked to a page are not available to a block on the same page???


I found a strange issue with media files in Episerver 9 (9.0.2). We have a lot of pages (several thousands, from a migration) with one or more media files linked to the pages (previously pagefiles).

Now we want to reuse these files in blocks on these pages, however, when i want to drag the media-files to a block, the files are not accessible, since they are directly linked to the page and not to the block??? How can i access those files?

Thanks in advance,

Hello Ron

Since the media files are attached to the page you need to move then out of the "For this page" folder into a folder under the "For this site" node. This will mean that the media files are then sharable so can be used on the block.
