When I create a template entry for an image with source location like

/sitecore/media library/Icons/Bezahlarten

enter image description here

I've added some images to this folder, but when I whant to select an image for this I see only this:

enter image description here

and I thought I would directly see all images inside this folder.

Only when I enable the treeview on the right and manually open the "Bezahlarten" folder I can select an image.

What can I do that I see the images directly when opening the media selection dialog?

simple search I can fin the picture enter image description here

  • Can you find those items in Content Editor with a simple search? Also, just guessing here, but do those media items have versions in en language? Feb 24, 2019 at 11:23
  • @SteveMcGill I've added a simple search result above and I can find the image. My default language is German, they have no version in EN currently Feb 24, 2019 at 12:12
  • So you shouldn't have to, but just suspecting a potential bug, can you see if the problem is "solved" if you add a EN version? Feb 24, 2019 at 12:13
  • It will came up if you add the EN version as the timestamp of the Updated field will change. I think you'll need to contact sitecore support about this. I did a test on a local instance and i have an image in the EN version but it does not display on the media dialog. Once i added or update a field on the media item, it appears on the dialog.

  • after adding the EN Version it shows up now seems to be a bug and not a problem with the source path I am using. Feb 24, 2019 at 12:40

I had the same problem after upgrading to Sitecore 8.2 update 7.

Sitecore has registered this as a bug with reference number #95466

They provided me with a patch, the patch has the following description:

This patch ignores the language parameter during the search on Select Media Dialog.

If you ask Sitecore Support they will send you a link to the patch.
