Multiple Link Collection Properties



I have a problem with the new Link Collection property in R2. I need to use two such properties in one page type and the problem is that links are only added to the one which is rendered last. So if I try to add a link to the first LinkCollection property, the link is actually added to the second LinkCollection property.

My question is: Is this by design (and, in this case, is there a way to get around the problem) or am I doing something wrong?

I reported it as a bug(#15041). I guess you could try to patch it in UI/edit/PropertyLinkCollectionEditControl.ascx yourself. The problem seems to be a global javascript that references non-global control IDs...

Have you found a possible solution to this? Would be appreciated.

This is a pretty serious issue. When could we expect a fix, or atleast a workaround? I was looking forward to using an "official" property for this instead of custom ones.

We have the same problem, so I hope this is a priortized issue which will be fixed quickly.

Its already fixed and pending approval by the test team, but there is no easy workaround right now..

When can we expect a fix being released?

When can we expect a fix being released? Is i going to be soon or do I have to use another multiple link implementation?

I'm pretty sure that we sent a hotfix for this to the support team about two weeks ago but it might be that this has not been published to the public yet. Please contact the support team to get hold of this hotfix.

has this fix been issued? We have found the same problem.

Looks like it's time for older/trusted the multi page property again..
