Multi Media Tags

Description

This plugin extends the shortcode functionality of the Media Tags plugin. The tag listings available via [media-tags media_tags="my-tag"] are intended for images only, other attachments produce invalid list items. This is where Multi-Media-Tags comes to the rescue. It reads the attachments MIME type (e.g. image/png, video/ogg or application/json) and decides how to format the attachment appropriately.

The most important new feature is perhaps the fallback solution: If no appropriate actions can be taken, Multi-Media-Tags provides a simple download link. The other available options right now are:

  • an HTML5 audio player for audio/*
  • an image tag for image/*

The Media Tags plugin is required to use Multi-Media-Tags!

Usage

The plugin is used via its shortcode. The options are the same as for the media-tags shortcode (see the help page in the media-tags admin menu). Examples:

  • [multi-media-tags media_tags="mytag"]
  • [multi-media-tags media_tags="foo,bar,neither-nor" orderby="title" order="ASC"]

Installation

To install the plugin follow these simple steps:

  1. Download the plugin archive
  2. Extract the archive in your wp-content/plugins directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress
  4. Start using the shortcodes as described above

FAQ

Which parameters can I use for the shortcode?

Exactly the same that you can use for the [mediatags] shortcode.

Which MIME types are covered?

At the moment images get an <img>-tag and audio gets an <audio>-tag. All other attachments are represented as a download link.
