[resolved] Can this plugin be used with wordpress' images from media library? (4 posts)

    Is it possible to use this plugin to filter images? I'm building image galleries of different artworks and I've assigned categories to them using the Media Categories plugin. But when I go to try to select the category from the search and filter dropdown, it comes up with no results found.

    Hi michelleadmin, this is a really non standard way to use WP so I decided some time ago not to support it because of all the potential problems I would get from people in support :/

    If you want to see if this works you could try allowing the "attachement" post type by removing lines 1196, 1197 and 1206 in search-filter.php.

    So the code should go from:

    if($post_type->name!="attachment")
    {
    	$tempobject = array();
    	$tempobject['term_id'] = $post_type->name;
    	$tempobject['cat_name'] = $post_type->labels->name;
    
    	$taxonomychildren[] = (object)$tempobject;
    
    	$post_types[] = $post_type->name;
    
    }

    to:

    $tempobject = array();
    $tempobject['term_id'] = $post_type->name;
    $tempobject['cat_name'] = $post_type->labels->name;
    
    $taxonomychildren[] = (object)$tempobject;
    
    $post_types[] = $post_type->name;

    Not sure it will work but you can try it :)

    Also you can try pass the attachment post type to your shortcode - something like:

    [searchandfilter fields="search,category" post_types="attachment"]

    Let me know if you manage to get it working :)
