Media Tags
[resolved] Select media by tag for inserting into post or set as featured images (3 posts)

    I was looking for a way to tag media. Now this plugin does all that. But than in the post edit screen I want to be able to select media by tag for inserting into the post (or to select media by tag to set them as featured image). This seems like a logical way for this plugin to work.
    But I can't find that when I am adding media in the post edit screen.
    Am I missing something obvious here?
    Or can this be added with a function somehow?

    Thanks...

    @hanheg,

    In WP 3.5.x this is no longer as straight forward on filtering images. When you are on the post edit page and click the side widget to set the featured image WordPress limits what you are seeing.

    To see what I mean instead of clicking the sidebar widget. Click instead the 'Add Media' button above the content area. When you do this you will see the 'Media Tags' menu item on the left. Clicking this will show a listing of your Media-Tags and the count. Then click through to the image you want. This is the older style view of the media section. So far I've not figured out a method to add Media-Tags to the other view.

    Hi Paul, that does it for now. Hopefully the new media area will settle down a bit and make the media tags plugin work with it more easliy.
    Thank you!
