Media Credit

Adds a "Credit" field when uploading media to posts and displays it under the images on your blog to properly credit the artist.

  • Fixed a packaging error that rendered the plugin inoperational

2.1.1 (Aug. 11, 2014)

  • Fix Visual Editor mode when credit field is empty

2.1.0 (Apr. 16, 2014)

  • Compatibility with WordPress 3.9 (TinyMCE 4.x)
  • Completely new Visual Editor code

2.0 (Oct. 27, 2013)

  • Compatibility with WordPress 3.5 media dialog
  • Fixes for bugs in Visual editor

1.1.2 (Mar. 1, 2011)

  • Fixes total autocomplete failure on WordPress 3.1
  • Fixes freeform credit situation where a user was selected but freeform text was entered afterward
  • Fixes extra output on activation notices (they weren't serious, but I imagine some people were freaking out seeing them)

1.1.1 (Sep. 19, 2010)

  • Updating media credit in the Media Library really does update the credit within posts correctly now! (props: Greg Wrey)
  • Adding multiple images with freeform media credit to a post also now works as expected (props: Greg Wrey)

1.1 (Jun. 25, 2010)

  • Now compatible with TinyMCE! Media credit will appear inline (i.e. below the photo) when using the Visual editor rather than as an ugly shortcode.
  • Updating media credit in the Media Library will now correctly and safely update it in an attached post, regardless of whether it's a WP user or not

1.0.2 (May 3, 2010)

  • Added filter on the_author so that media credit is properly displayed in Media Library (not yet for unattached media, though - will be added in WP 3.1 hopefully)
  • Made $post parameter actually optional in template tags (used global $post if not given)

1.0.1 (Apr. 26, 2010)

  • Changed post meta field from media-credit to _media_credit so that it doesn't appear in custom fields section on Post edit page normally. Upgrade script will handle changing the key for all existing metadata.

1.0 (Apr. 26, 2010)

  • Added author media rendering methods (see FAQ)
  • If media credit is edited in the Media Library, the media credit in the post to which media is attached to will now update as well!
  • Only load JS and CSS in admin on pages that need it
  • Blank credit can now be assigned to media
  • Switched rendering of media-credit shortcode credit info to div instead of span for more readable RSS feed

  • With above, fixed loss of control of AJAX functionality in WordPress admin area
  • Default options are now correctly registered when the plugin is activated
  • Any pre-existing options will not be overwritten when activating the plugin
  • Separator and organization names on the settings page are properly escaped

0.5.1 (Mar. 5, 2010)

  • Fixed autocomplete when selecting credit so that it only shows currently selectable users (particularly important for WordPress MU users).
  • Made it so that upon clicking in the Credit field the text already there will be highlighted - start typing right away!
  • Hid media credit inline with attachments if the "Display credits after post" option is enabled.

0.5 (Mar. 4, 2010)
