Support » Plugin: Media Library Assistant » Map keywords to tags

    Hi there, I am looking for a solution to add keywords that are stored from Lightroom with the image as tags in the media library. I have a feeling that this plugin could solve this but I am a bit overwhelmed by the options and tabs.

    Would you mind pointing me in the right direction?

    Thanks – Alex

    Sorry for double posting. But I figured out that I have to activate and set the mapping on “Tags” to “2#025:Keywords”.

    But I still have to enable the mapping on every single image “<- Click To Toggle”.

    Is there a way to enable this by default for every upload so the tags are mapped to images? And how would I go about exposing the tags in form of a tag cloud in the front end of the website?

    Thanks again!

    Thanks for both of your posts and for taking the time to find and use an IPTC/EXIF mapping rule to copy the IPTC Keywords to the “Tags” (or “Att. Tags”) taxonomy.

    You wrote “But I still have to enable the mapping on every single image “<- Click To Toggle”. Depending on what you mean I have three suggestions:

    1. You can run the mapping rule for all existing Media Library items by hovering over the mapping rule “Tags” name and clicking the “Execute” rollover action.
    2. You can automatically apply the rule to new items during upload by checking the “Enable IPTC/EXIF Mapping when adding new media” box and clicking Save Changes.
    3. You can skip the “<- Click To Toggle” step by navigating to the Settings/Media LIbrary Assistant General tab, checking the “Media Manager auto-fill meta boxes” box and clicking Save Changes.

    If none of those suggestions are helpful, any additional details you can provide will help me understand your comment. I believe the second suggestion answers your “Is there a way to enable this by default for every upload so the tags are mapped to images?” question.

    You asked “ how would I go about exposing the tags in form of a tag cloud? You can use MLA’s [mla_tag_cloud] shortcode to build solutions around a tag cloud. There are some example solutions in the Settings/Media Library Assistant Documentation tab and several earlier support topics along similar lines.

    I am marking this topic resolved, but please update it if you have problems or further questions about the above suggestions. If you want more specific help with the [mla_tag_cloud] it would be best to start a new topic. Thanks for your interest in the plugin.

    Thank you very much for your elaborate answer. That really helped. Looking into the tag cloud now. Will probably have questions 🙂
