Reviews

So many thanks

Hey John,
So many thanks for your work on the free plugins !
There is one thing on that one that would be great in furture updates : Having a dropdown with the existing categories when you upload a media file. For now, there is only a blank category field where you need to type in the slug of the category you want to add to the media (ie you need to know the slug).
Cheers !

Good plugin

It would be better if you add possibility to show translation of your plugin. May be something like this
load_plugin_textdomain(‘wp-media-categories’, false, basename(dirname(__FILE__)) . ‘/lang/’);

Simple, elegant solution for media management

Everything about this plugin feels native to WordPress. Filtering your view within the Media Library works exactly how you would expect if you’re familiar with filtering posts by category. I also appreciate that the terms are stored in the database in a way that is consistent with all other taxonomies. Great plugin with a singular purpose.
