After updating to Assets 2.0.4 on EE 2.5.1, I noticed that that when I view a custom Assets field, the previously defined upload directories are no longer checked.

After some digging around the assets database tables, I noticed some odd inconsistencies: http://jon.ee/image/2l0B2w2v3A3Y (Screenshot)

All of my images display properly on the front-end.

  • What could be causing the upload paths to be unchecked on custom Assets filled
  • Should the full_path column be filled in, and is this causing the issue?
  • From what version did you upgrade from, Jon? Also, full_path column should be empty for top level folders (parent_id set to NULL). Commented Feb 1, 2013 at 7:57
  • I upgraded from 1.2.2. Looks like database is correct then. I didn't fully understand the changes Assets 2 made, so it made me nervous that the column was empty.

  • That said, My Upload directories aren't checked when viewing a custom Assets field. Any ideas on this one?

  • So updating from 1 to 2 lost your Assets field settings? (Namely - allowed upload folders) Commented Feb 3, 2013 at 15:30

    It seems that all of the settings are still there, the boxes just aren't checked.
