Support » Plugin: Media Library Assistant » Filter media when adding to post/page

  • Resolved indeliriodesign


    Hi there – just getting to grips with this excellent plugin.

    I am struggling to add a ‘filter’ function when inserting uploaded media into my posts and pages. I am in the process of importing a file structure to a new WP site, and it would be useful if I could find documents to insert by the categories I have assigned them.

    Would be grateful for any pointers.

    Your comments about searching by keywords/tags, etc. when adding existing media to posts and pages are right on target. In fact, this feature has been requested before:

    Feature Request: Add Media Dialog: Search by Att. Category”

    Thank you and question about possible future feature

    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; 3.5 is a big change adding the Backbone and Underscore JavaScript libraries and several thousand lines of new code to understand. I hope to add it to version 1.2.

    Thanks your question, your patience 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. I’m going to mark this issue resolved.
