    hi Merganser – thanks for reply and responses.

    i do have a little experience of modifying the media uploader pop up – basically cribbing someone elses plugin that used this technique. its a bit fiddly too – ajax callbacks etc , as i recall.

    also, i did run into problems with two plugins running simultaneously on same page, both invoking/using common js liraries. (as i recall i was forced to just commented out the 2nd plugins include eventually.)

    raises the question of how best to package and ship such (js) dependencies. ie. whether to consider writing a single plugin to install/manage all required js libraries, etc. wp core does a lot of good stuff with ‘load order’ parameters and strict version dependencies, etc (where they are implemented) – but it could do with a little refinement i think.

    i’ll see if i can dig up some more info.

    good news youre planning to do taxonomies. keep up the good work.

    hey wanted to let you know I just committed version 1.0.5

    it supports hierarchical categories and allows developer to utilize the slugs such as /media/[media category]/

    great stuff merganser – just trying it out now (see also my other thread). works great so far. many thanks. keep up the good work. 🙂

    i needed yesterday this functionality for one of my clients who transferred from joomla to WP so i have quickly added filter in popup

    you can get changed media-categories.php file from here:

    basically i have removed default media library tab in popup and replaced it with custom one where i have added filter so there is no messing around with core code.
    one thig is that in select list current category was not selected so i have change that also. now current category is selected

    i have commented code so you can see what was changed. changes were made on following lines:
    763-to the end

    hope you will find it useful and that developer will clean it a bit for next release of this excellent plugin

    I just saw this post omegastudio. I will have to compare what you promoted on pastebin to what I included on 1.1
