Extensively configurable plugin packed with a bunch of features enabling media tagging, search and media taxonomy.
To install the WP MediaTagger plugin just follow this simple 10-step recipe.
CAUTION : if upgrading from WP ImageTagger, backup your database, taking care to include the table wp_term_relationships_img and deactivate the ImageTagger plugin from the extensions administration page before activating WP MediaTagger (CRITICAL !). Refer to instructions at page bottom.
Start associating your blog medias with any tag of your blog. Two methods for this purpose :
- From your WordPress administration panel, go to Settings > MediaTagger and start associating the first media found to any tag in the Tag Editor
- Or, still from the MediaTagger administration area, switch to the Image Explorer mode, navigate to the file you want to tag and click on the file to select it back to the Tag Editor
- Or, assuming your site display captions below each media : from any post or page holding medias, click on the media caption (being administrator) and make the association with any tag from the Tag Editor panel.
Prepare a result page to present the search results :
- Create a new page (or use existing one if you want).
- From your WordPress editor, enter the MediaTagger shortcode :
[mediatagger]- There are options you will learn later, but this simple form is perfect for a quick start.
- Check the result on the page containing this call.
- Start playing with the options offered in the MediaTagger admin panel.
By default your search page is the same as your result page. You can also choose to activate the MediaTagger widget to integrate an media search tagcloud in your sidebar, or to manage the search page at a different address for a specific use.
