  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

Excellent plugin. Ignore 1-star reviews.

This plug is so demanded, and wp itself is so usable what users with no php skills try to install it. And that cause bad reviews.

However, in modern world to have no programming skills = to be illiterate.

Seriously. This is part of school curriculum. Everybody have SOME programming skills.

Images are used in wordpress in thousands ways. It depend on theme. It depend on other plugins. So if you install Media Library Custom Fields and expect some magic – it won’t happen. This is backend plugin.
And that’s normal.

But if you have a tiny bit of skills – this plugin will help to cast the spell by yourself.
