    Gallery improvements should be high on priority list I think, many good suggestions in the comments.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    detail that is easy to change and would be nice to see it in wordpress 3.5.2:

    wp-admin/post.php?post=ID&action=edit -> when you open media gallery (for upload or choose some image), you have no idea what post you are editing (in case you have some phonecall and you forget)... post title shoult be in <head><title> tag, or in the media gallery popup window...

    thanks

  4. I find it interesting that the WP Devs were so proud of the new media gallery update in 3.5. And while it is something of an improvement, it's like they got half-way done and stopped.

    It feels incomplete. The inability to use categories and tags makes it extremely difficult to find existing images when you have thousands uploaded (I manage a news site for a radio station and the reporters upload hundreds of images a day).

    And with the Government requiring certain sites to meet accessibility standards, I am at a loss as to why the alt tag information was dropped.

    Alt tag is still there. It's "Alternative Text" but it's still in the Media Uploader. It doesn't auto fill since it would be grabbing things like "1234o8ffs.jpg" which isn't accessible at all :)

    Thank you for looking into this. I suppose I did update to WP 3.5 and install your plugin on the same day!

    As for the gallery of galleries..it worked perfectly, thank you!

    Im using Media Library Assistant plugin - great support, basically works upon gallery shortcode that is impressive - almost runs "native". You can do almost anything and code of that is really Poetry.
    Really I hope that WP in future versions will be always fully compatible with that (MLA plugin) piece of work. Because if someone can do such a timeless things to be turned from idea to code, I really appreciate that. And not only me.

    I agree the 3.5 update was lacking but it was something. I use it.

  9. Agreed. The way media galleries are handled right now should and can be way better.

    Can something like this be added to the WordPress core please? Or can you add all the images to the gallery area so we can easily select and hide pictures if needed?
