Media Library Sorting / display file size / trash (3 posts)

    The Media Library could use some enhancement to make it more useful for managing media files.

    1. I would like to see sorting built in to the media library. You should be able to sort by:

    file name
    file title
    file size
    date added
    author

    2. File Size should be displayed as one of the columns

    3. Instead of or in addition to Delete, there should be a Trash option. This would make it safer when cleaning up orphan files because you could have a chance to restore if you delete a file that is still referenced on the website.

  2. The current Media Library settings show you where a file is 'attached' to (i.e. what post is using the image).

    A file can be attached to a post without actually being used in that post e.g. if it was uploaded, inserted and later removed without deleting the file.
