Media Library Manager - What Have You Done? (2 posts)

    I'm trying to place images into a product pages (essentially a post), but when I bring up the Media Manager to select my images, all I see are square thumbnails...there is no text describing my images. Problem is, all my product images look very similar (white products on a blue background across hundreds of images) so I need to see text to tell what's what...my filenames will tell me which images go where. There's no way to filter or sort or organize files in the Media Manager, it's just a sea of thumbnails. This is definitely not a step forward in terms of workflow or usability.

    I can see how that must be frustrating.
    So what you would want is to be able to see the image title under the image to assist with identifying the image..?
    so, when you select an image the Attachment Details are presented to you on the right panel.

    If you really need it now, you can go into the file:
    wp-includes/media-template.php
    line: 130

    where there is this code:

    <div class="thumbnail">
    <div class="centered">
    <img src="{{ data.size.url }}" draggable="false" />
    </div>
    </div>

    and replace it with this code:

    <div class="thumbnail">
    <div class="centered">
    <img src="{{ data.size.url }}" draggable="false" />
    </div>
    <div class="filename">
    <div>{{ data.filename }}</div>
    </div>
    </div>

    where data.filename can be switched out for data.title or data.caption for example.

    This is a system core file edit which will not be maintained upon updating the core system.
