I need to have a default view that is used for all images when added to a content area, is this possible to have? I know that I can add a view to the DisplayTemplates folder and reference it in the UIhint, but I don't want to restrict the content area to images only, and I would like to have a default behavior for all images. Is this possible?
Just add a view named as your image media type to your ~/Views/Shared folder. If your media type is named ImageMedia the view should be called ImageMedia.cshtml and look something like this:
@if (Model != null)
<img src="@Url.ContentUrl(Model.ContentLink)" alt="">
