Suggestion - batch categorization (5 posts)

    I like your plugin. It has a lot of potential. There is one improvement I would suggest. I currently have 400 media files. I wish to categorize them using your plugin. The thing is that to do that I have to enter into each file and categorize it. This is too time consuming. I suggest to allow batch categorizing of media files. This would make your plugin more usable for sites that already have many media files. Such batch categorization is already built into wordpress regarding posts.
    Keep up the good work,

    Hi yoramzara,

    Thank you for your suggestion. Batch categorization would be a good improvement, but a lot of work must be done since it is not yet possible to add custom actions to the batch selector in WP_Media_List_Table.

    WordPress 3.5 (will be released in December 5th) will hoppely change that behaviour, and then it would be possible to integrate that action in my plugin. Actually, I am working on it now. ;)

    You'd better wait this month and then, in december, after updating your WordPress to version 3.5 you'll update to the last version of the plugin and then be able to use the new functionality of batch categorization.

    I have a similar problem like yoramzara and would like to batch categorize or even right after upload, before saving the post.

    I am working with WordPress 3.5 and installed the plugin today, but there is no such functionality of batch categorization.
