    Hi

    Hopefully you guys can help me on this one, I basically followed the steps as outlined to add an extra field to a Image Library:

    http://www.sitefinity.com/support/forums/support-forum-thread/b1043S-bcbmbk.aspx

    All the admin side works, but what I was hoping to do was to be able to then use these extra Meta Fields on the public side, I have tried altering the various templates with no joy.  Is this at all possible, if so how?

    Another thought I had was, that I would like to be able to add these fields for only one library, which you can do in terms of saving, but I wanted to know if you could have a separate ControlPanelEdit.ascx for a specific library that way the extra fields don't confuse users?

    If you need any more info please just ask.

    Thanks
    Sean

    Hi Sean Molam,

    The problem that you are experiencing happens because we omitted this feature in our previous release but this has been fixed for SP1 (which is coming out shortly). If you cannot wait for it, I can suggest a work-around - in the forum thread you provided I gave a solution how to extend the Image Gallery control, posted on 2/27/2008 4:13:39 AM. Combining the work-around suggested in the post that you followed and the one that I wrote, should fix your problem.

    As to your second question - this is behavior that cannot be achieved with Sitefinity for the time being. We will think whether this will be an interesting and usable feature to our clients and it may get into our future release plans.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks Tihomir,

    Do you happen to know when the SP1 will be out, I don't need an exact date, but just need to know whether or not to implement this work around or not.  I have a project that needs this functionality by Friday, so if it is going to be long after that then I will do the work around?

    Thanks
