Media Categories

Easily assign categories to media with a clean, simple, and searchable category meta box. Then use the gallery shortcode to display category galleries

Can this plugin work with a custom taxonomy, or a built-in taxonomy other than Categories?

Yes, modify the taxonomy used by a metabox by making use of the mc_taxonomy filter. They can also create additional metaboxes for other taxonomies by creating new instances of the Media_Categories class.

See the 'Multiple Taxonomy Metaboxes' section (a.k.a 'Other Notes') for more details on how this is done.

Can any of this customization explained above be done without writing any code?

No. Currently there is no way to change the taxonomy, or create additional taxonomy metaboxes in the Media Library without adding a little bit of PHP (preferably to you theme).

Have no fear however, I do have intentions to add magical plugin options pages to allow as much as possible to be done without development - sorry but I have no timeline for when this might happen.

Is there any way to see all the attachment/media items associated to a category/taxonomy term, the way we can with Posts?

In WordPress 3.5, you can now see any taxonomy enabled for attachments the same way you see Categories for Posts. For earlier versions, I'm afraid the answer is no.

I found a bug, or I would like to suggest/request a feature, can I submit it?

Of course, thats great! I love hearing how people want to use my plugins, and if you look though my blog or this plugins support forum, you'll see I have a tendency of fulfilling people's requests ( but no promises :p )

Bug reports are extremely helpful! Most of my plugins have been developed while at work, and publicly submitted bug reports help prove the point that Open Source is the way to go. It amounts to free public quality assurance testing. So please please please report any bugs to you see. Preferably on the WordPress plugin directory, but if you feel so inclined you may report them on my blog http:://eddiemoya.com
