FAQ

Why does my term count not match if I add another taxonomy?

This might be a failure in your register_taxanomy function.
You have to set update_count_callback to _update_generic_term_count in the taxonomy registration

I added another taxonomy for attachments, but don’t want to use the features of this plugin.

Ok, use the media-taxonomies hook to remove your taxonomy from the list

Known Bugs
  • Registering a core taxonomy via register_taxonomy_for_object_type( 'post_tag', 'attachment' ) won’t work

Reviews

Perfect simple solution that avoids overkill present in other plugins

I’ve tried a few media library plugins with varying levels of success, but they all did far too much for what I needed, which was simply to add categories and tags to attachments. This plugin does that and, more importantly, inserts filter select dropdowns in the appropriate places throughout WordPress, including the media modal interface.

Adding taxonomies to attachments isn’t hard in WordPress for developers, but dealing with the media modal interface can be a real head-scratcher, so this plugin is worth it for that alone.
