    The following things are wrong:

    - "Media Tags" menu is not shown.
    - Media tags input area not shown when editing media.
    - Updating media that previously had media tags associated loses its media tags!

    What does work:

    - Filtering by "Media Tags" column in media manager.

    Media-Tags have been tested with WordPress 3.2.1 and does in fact work.

    Questions for you to answer:

    1. What other plugins are you running. There are for some reason other plugins that are also creating menus called 'Media-Tags' under the Library section.

    2. What hosting are you using? Windows? WordPress standard or WordPress Multisite?

    3. What theme?

    4. Are you accessing the wp-admin will full admin access? Since version 3.0 of Media-Tags it support roles-based access. By default only full admin users have access to the Media-Tags menu panel. But full admin user can grant access to non-admin users via the Media-Tags menu.

    1. What other plugins are you running. There are for some reason other plugins that are also creating menus called 'Media-Tags' under the Library section.

    I deactivated all plugins to single the issue out to this plugin. The plugins are:

    • Akismet 2.5.3
    • Enable Media Replace 2.5
    • Lock Pages 0.2.2
    • Media Tags 3.0.5
    • SexyBookmarks (by Shareaholic) 4.0.5.6
    • Widget Context 0.7
    • WordPress jQuery UI Effects 1.0.0

    2. What hosting are you using? Windows? WordPress standard or WordPress Multisite?

    Windows hosting (it's a development server, real hosting is on Linux CentOS). WordPress standard.

    3. What theme?

    Custom, but I switched it to twenty eleven 1.2 to verify that it isn't the theme causing the issue. At the moment I have everything disabled except your plugin.

    4. Are you accessing the wp-admin will full admin access? Since version 3.0 of Media-Tags it support roles-based access. By default only full admin users have access to the Media-Tags menu panel. But full admin user can grant access to non-admin users via the Media-Tags menu.

    Full admin access.

    Additional Information:
    Your plugin works on a fresh installation of WordPress (on the same server).

    I have just reinstalled the latest WordPress update (via updates tab) and deleted your plugin files and re-downloaded to ensure that they are fresh. Switched to twenty eleven theme and removed all plugins (except yours) and it still doesn't work.

    No menu item, and no integration into the media editor. Media tags still shown on manager interface though. So your plugin is partly working.

    It is strange because the plugin was working before I updated WordPress and your plugin.

    Please let me know if there is any other information that you need.

    Hmm. Sounds like there is something up with your user authority or roles or something. So you are not seeing the Media-Tags menu at all. Try installing a Roles plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=Roles&sort=

    I like to use the Role Manager plugin http://www.im-web-gefunden.de/wordpress-plugins/role-manager/ or the Members plugin from Justin Tadlock. http://justintadlock.com/archives/2009/09/17/members-wordpress-plugin

    The Media-Tags plugin sets up some user role objects. These objects are prefixed with 'Meditags ' Here a screenshot of the Admin role capabilities http://screencast.com/t/3QOA97aZ

    Keep me posted. I would like to solve this. Also if possible I'd like to request a complete archive of the site since it is under dev. That way I can run on my local development server to try and figure out the issue. Which bring up a question. You mentioned the real hosting is Linux. Are you seeing the same problem there?

    Okay I have found a way to reproduce the issue, it is the "update" existing plugin that seems to break.

    • Initially I had WordPress 3.0.3 with MediaTags 2.2.9.2 installed.
    • I then updated WordPress using the automatic update on the dashboard.
    • I then updated Akismet, and then MediaTags...Akismet probably has nothing to do with this, but I couldn't update MediaTags until I updated the former.
    • The MediaTags options are missing.

    I was able to get the interface to show properly by:

    • Replacing all instances of MEDIATAGS_SETTINGS_CAP (and similar) with "manage_options".
    • MediaTags menu options appear and I am able to access "Roles Management" to assign the "Administrator" account with the proper capabilities.
    • I then undid my MEDIATAGS_SETTINGS_CAP changes and it works fine.

    So you were spot on, yes it is a capability problem.

    If the latest version of MediaTags is installed on a WordPress installation then it works fine first time. It always fails (under these circumstances) when updating from a previous version of the plugin.

    This would lead me to believe that it has something to do with the update script.

    Perhaps this will help you to track down the problem. Please let me know if I can be of any more help.

    If a user doesn't have permission to assign terms to media, and changes the title of an image that has terms, the image looses all of its terms!

    Thanks for helping work through all this. Yeah, agreed it sounds like the upgrade is the culprit. I will look into that.

    I had a similar issue where all of the Media Tags interface seemed to disappear after upgrading the plugin, in both WordPress 3.1 and 3.2.

    I deleted the media-tags-version option and re-activated the plugin and that seemed to fix it, oddly enough.
