Categorize Media

  1. lalitj

    When we upload images in large number then it becomes difficult to search for images of similar type. If we have an option of adding category to media then it will be easy for users to search for the desired image from media.

    Also, If we can't implement above then there should be provision for searching an image by its ID.

    I had pretty much the same idea, so I voted for yours! You can search for images by title, but it would be really nice to have them grouped in to categories, or easy to organize to your needs...

    I just released a plugin that does exactly this. Let me know what you think.


    While I think this might be something that should remain pluggable, I think there are some minor changes in core that could be made to make it easier to switch this sort of feature on, without _needing_ to resort to writing a custom walker and a custom metabox.

    There is a built in ability for a developer to add taxonomy support to media, but the interface just ends up being a simple text field that users would need to type slugs or category names into directly. As a result to make this look half decent developers need to jump through a couple hoops. This should be simplified, and turning on taxonomy support for attachments should result in a clean usable interface by default.

  4. Since WordPress 3.5 you can add taxonomies using:

    register_taxonomy( 'media-category', 'attachment', $args );

    Great plugin Eddie Moya, thank you very much.

    And yes, I think this feature should be implemented within wordpress update, considering the number of photoblogs out there.

    work properly...

    Any other alternatives?

  8. It would be great indeed, if pictures could be organized better, without the need for another plugin.

    Btw, the mentioned one works for me with 3.9.1.

    The plugin works fine with version 3.9.1., just tested.
    Personally I think that feature as the one discussed in this topic fits perfectly in a plugin; its purpose is to extend WordPress.

    Works for me too, but it kind of slows the backend down, anyone else having the same problem?
