    Thank you for the very good plugin.
    Still we would like to be able to add media to a post based on the att. category.

    Currently when you add existing media you are able to choose the date range. See here

    It would be wonderful to be able to choose a category.

    Thank you

    Thanks for the kind words and for your suggestion. This is similar to an earlier request (Thank you and question about possible future feature) and it is on my list for future development.

    Thanks for using the plugin!

    This issue has just been raised again:

    Clarifications needed

    What I plan to do is add a new tab to the WordPress (3.5) "Insert Media" popup dialog with all of the filtering options up see on the Media/Assistant screen (mime types, date ranges, categories/tags, enhanced search box, author). It's the right thing to do, but it's a significant piece of work that includes Javascript and Ajax elements. I hope to add it to version 1.2, two releases from now.

    Thanks again for the suggestion and for using the plugin.

    I have released MLA version 1.20, which includes Media Manager support for filtering the library by date, taxonomy term and additional MIME types. It also includes an enhanced search box that matches the box in the Media/Assistant submenu. The enhancements are available for the Add Media, Create Gallery, Add to Gallery and Set Featured Item functions in the Media Manager.

    Thanks for your interest and your patience. If you have any problems with or questions about the new release, let me know.
