Media Files linked to a page are not available to a block on the same page???

Vote:
 

I found a strange issue with media files in Episerver 9 (9.0.2). We have a lot of pages (several thousands, from a migration) with one or more media files linked to the pages (previously pagefiles).

Now we want to reuse these files in blocks on these pages, however, when i want to drag the media-files to a block, the files are not accessible, since they are directly linked to the page and not to the block??? How can i access those files?

Thanks in advance,

Ron

Hello Ron

Since the media files are attached to the page you need to move then out of the "For this page" folder into a folder under the "For this site" node. This will mean that the media files are then sharable so can be used on the block.
