Media Categories


By default, WordPress doesn’t allow for categorising attachments – just posts. This plugin adds a category selection field to the attachment management interface.


  1. Upload the extracted plugin folder and contained files to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory – you should have a folder /wp-content/plugins/attachment-categories/ with the file attachment-categories.php in it
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
