The missing feature: Link to containing parent for media and blocks when not used
Ever searched in media or block tab, and found an asset, but since it is not used, it is impossible to find where it is? and ultimatly not possible to "Move to trash"

On a hack day recently i wanted to address this.
The problem was that i couldn’t find a plugin area for the “header” area on IContents in UI. Feature request CMS ui team, pls.
So the main concept was to subcribe to “changeview/updatestate” which is fired often, then attach the html under the “ID, Type” label.
Here is the gist, ParentContainer.js is dojo code, Put “parentcontainer.js” in “scripts” folder. Modul.config is needed in the root solution folder to trigger the js file.

Tip of the week! If you haven’t used DbLocalizationProvider before, it’s worth implementing it. A module for editors to translate/edit UI-data to the website. Even if you only have one language on site the system can be used for words and sentences used in the UI, ie buttons and things that are “hard-coded”. Also descriptions for fields in your CMS can be saved in the system and thus become editable for editors and administrators. The module is free, so ask your favorite developer to install and implement it. More power to the editors! https://emvp.blog/10
