[resolved] Media Type Category.... (3 posts)

    I have uploaded many images, and added a category to each image. I would love to list all those categories in the widget area. Was wondering if there is a shortcode for this display? In the display it would act like the regular category widget in that you click on the link and it gives you all the uploaded media that is categorized with that term.

    Sorry for the delay in responding - I've just returned from a trip to England and am catching up on a lot of things.

    There is nothing in the current MLA version that will do this, but it's an interesting idea. I will do some research and see if I can add something to my next release. I will leave this topic unresolved for now and I will update it when I have progress to report.

    Thanks for your interest in the plugin and for this suggestion.

    MLA version 1.60, released on November 27, contained two new features that might answer your needs:

    1. New: [mla_tag_cloud] shortcode. Enhanced tag cloud for any taxonomy, with "grid" format, full Display Content and custom template support along the lines of [mla_gallery]. Paginated clouds are also supported. Full details in the Other Notes section and on the Settings/Media Library Assistant Documentation tab.
    2. New: MLA Text Widget. You can add widgets containing [mla_gallery], [mla_tag_cloud] or any shortcode to the sidebars on your site. More information in the Other Notes section.

    I would be very interested in your thoughts on these new features and be happy to answer any questions you might have. I am going to mark this topic resolved, but please update it with any problems or further questions. Thanks for your interest and for this question.
