Dynamic content and propertyimageurl

When I add a Dynamic Content control to an instance of a page that isn't saved yet and the Dynamic Content controls contains a "PropertyImageUrl" I get the following error:


Note When an instance of the page exists it works fine. This only started appearing after upgrading the site from 5.2 to 6.0.

I have the same error. I'm guessing there's a bug in CMS/Editor/Dialogs/DynamicContent.aspx regarding the PageReference parameters.

The problem I think is that the dynamic content edit page don't have any reference to which page you are on. Therefor the error

I think this fix it

Thanks Anders!

I needed to change the this.Page.Request["id"] == null condition to string.IsNullOrEmpty(this.Page.Request["id"]) to make it work in my case though.
