Ideas

Built in tags (or categories) for media files.

    My clients tell me that the inability to organise the media gallery efficiently, e.g. by giving media tags and/or categories, is one of WordPress's biggest weaknesses. Two thumbs up for this idea. :)

    Hello,

    What do you think about using this plugin to sort your files.

    Zefta, thanks for the suggestion. I'm sure that plugin could be useful in some implementations, but it doesn't meet my needs for two reasons:

    1) Using folders means that each image can be in only one folder (or category) so it's not possible to tag with multiple attributes.

    2) Not sure what happens if you disable the plugin. Can WordPress still find images in the sub-folders? What happens when the plugin is no longer supported? I'd rather have an implementation that better matches the WordPress core architecture.

    I can't answer to number 1 but for number 2 if you disabled the plugin there is no problems with links because path of medias are stored in database.
