    I am able to add metafields to the "Images Library," but cannot access them via the UI for adding content to them.  I  have read through this portion of the user manual: Extending Images and Documents Module.  This section mentions adding these new fields to this user control:
    <sfGCn:ContentMetaFields ID="editMetaFields" runat="server"

    It states that you can find this control using the following path:
    ~/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/Libraries/ControlPanelEdit_Image.ascx

    When I follow the recommended path I find no such control.  I have looked through most of the directories and cannot find this control.  I am using sitefinity V3.7, is the documentation I have referenced incorrect for the version I am running?  Basically does anyone know how to change the UI controls to add metadata in V3.7?  Thanks in advance for any help on this...

    Hi Ryan,

    Please take a look at this KB article How to map an external template for a view.

    Hi Ivan,

    I have a similar issue to Ryan's--rather than start a new forum post, I thought I would add on to this one.  I've downloaded the Sitefinity_3_7_2096_standard_ExternalTemplates file from the downloads section; however, it does not contain the ~/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/Libraries/ControlPanelEdit_Image.ascx file so I'm still stuck.  Where do I get this file so I can edit it?

    Hi plaidpony,

    The file relates to Sitefinity versions prior to Sitefinity 3.6. The file you have to edit in the latest versions is called: ~/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/Libraries/LibraryItemEdit.ascx
