Adds 'Images' metaboxes to the wordpress post editor for better image management.
This is a simple metabox to make it easier to manage images in wordpress. It allows you to enter a title, caption & menu-order for an image as well as set thumbnail without the complexity of the standard wordpress image system. It has been a long-standing complaint of mine that there is no simple, straightforward way to quick-edit info for images attached to wordpress posts. Now there is :) ( See Screenshot 1 )
It also includes a ‘detach’ & ‘delete’ function, and adds in ‘Detach’ & ‘Retach’ options in the Media Library view. ( See Screenshot 3)
To provide a means of adding new images, I’ve included the experimental “All Images” metabox. This will display a list of all currently unattached images and allow you to edit caption & description and attach or delete. (See Screenshot 2)
Designed to work by default with my colorbox wordpress plugin (which is just a very basic adaptation of the jquery plugin). That should be available soon from my web site.
This DOES NOT provide a means to upload new files. You’ll have to stick with current wordpress methods to do that, for now. I would like to add on a flash uploader in a future version.
Please contact me if you find this useful, have any suggestions, or when you find bugs! If you like this plugin, consider buying me a coffee :)
