    Customising Related Links with Media

    We are using the Related Links with Media data type installed through uComponents. We have a problem in that content editors occasionally select the media folder rather than the media file itself.

    Is there any way the form/control can be customised to prevent this? Is the UI available somewhere where we could maybe add a bit of Javascript?

    Thanks in advance for any advice!

    Hi Graeme,

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the "Related Links with Media" data-type got archived off a few years ago.

    Not sure which versions of Umbraco & uComponents you are working with?

    The source-code for that data-type is still available here: https://github.com/uComponents/uComponents/tree/develop/src/uComponents.Legacy/DataTypes/RelatedLinksWithMedia

    Feel free to do whatever with the source-code, (it's MIT licensed), but unfortunately I wont be able to give you much support with it.

    Cheers,
    - Lee

    Hi Lee

    Thanks for your response. We are using Umbraco version 6.16. No plans to upgrade in the near future.

    Out of interest if/when we do upgrade to Umbraco version 7 would the related links with media data type still work or would we need to find something else to replace it?

    thanks

    Graeme

    Hi Graeme,

    re: upgrading to v7 - my honest answer is that I'd expect it not to work at all.

    I'm not overly familiar with the data-format for that data-type (I didn't develop it myself, it was someone else on the uComponents team, who I don't recall at the moment, sorry).

    As for a replacement, you'd probably be looking at something like Archetype or Nested Content.

    Cheers,
    - Lee
