    I can organise the media into categories no problem, but when I go to add an image to a page or post via an image block, I do not see the image filter. 🙁

  • Hi its me from the other addon. That’s a paid feature.I paid and it works now.
    But it’s just categories. As in Post categories, not media categories.
    So yeah… 🙁
    But I found the solution.
    Get WP Media Category Management and you can use the old media categories you made with Enhanced Media Library, you have to find it in settings-“Media Taxonomy To Use” and set it to your old media categories that you have before(should look very different from the other taxonomies) mine said “Media Categories (.)#24107”
    Note to Jeffrey – we are ex Enhanced Media Library users, 5.3 finally broke it and we are figuring out a solution

    I was very off base. Disregard. Didn’t clear cache. Let’s take this to original plugin’s forum.

    Hi, by de default the plugin uses the same categories as the post categories. If you want to use the same categories as in Enhanced Media Library you can add this snippet to functions.php from your (child) theme:

    /**
    * separate media categories from post categories
    * use a custom category called 'media_category' for the categories in the media library
    */
    add_filter( 'wpmediacategory_taxonomy', function(){ return 'media_category'; } );
    

    I will release an update of the plugin in a couple of days that will add an interface to do this action in a more user friendly way 😉

    If you want to filter on categories when inserting media in the editor (classic or Gutenberg blocks) or a pagebuilder you can use the Premium version 100% money back guarantee.

    If media_category is the same taxonomy/category name as you have used in enhanced media library all your assigned categories and media are still working.

    Ah OK. But I do wnader what else would be the point of this non-premium plugin if it cannot be used for posts.

    Bingo – (sorry to chime in again)
    That last post by Jeffrey lit something up in me.

    After cleanly loading each plugin and deleting cache, I noticed a URL discrepancy with Enhanced and this plugin when viewing Media Categories.

    One had media_category in the URL, and the other had category_media.

    So I switched “category_media” with “media_category” in the functions edit and it worked. Idk why or how I needed to do that. Maybe because I had installed that other plugin that I had loaded? Shrug.

    So now I’m good – this is Jeffrey W please don’t refund me, I’m keeping it.

    The only suggestion I have is to enable Grid editing as well as List. And that Bulk Delete that Enhanced had was very nice.

    You have a really promising opportunity to pull in all the users that will be leaving Enhanced. It hasn’t been maintained in over a year now, and it’s broken.

    Thanks

    Hi, as of version 1.9 of the free plugin and version 2.6 of the premium it’s possible to separate the media categories from the default WordPress categories through an user interface located under Settings → Media. Also accessible at the settings quicklink on the plugins overview page.

    We will look into your other feature requests.
