Thanks for your positive feedback and for your report.
I have not been able to reproduce your issue on my system, but if I understand your description correctly, it looks like you may be confusing the Bulk Edit area and Quick Edit area.
In the Bulk Edit area, existing terms are not displayed/checked because term assignments vary from item to item. This is true even if you Bulk Edit only one item. Any terms you assign in the Bulk Edit area will replace existing terms unless you select the “Add” or “Remove” radio button below the taxonomy display area.
To clarify, are you clicking the “Quick Edit” rollover action in the left-most column of the table entry for an item or are you selecting the “Edit” action in the Bulk Actions dropdown and then clicking “Apply”?
Thanks for any additional details you can provide.
Hi David – nope I’m talking about Quick Edit. Also, in Bulk Edit, even with Add selected, it replaces all of the terms. If it helps I’m using Custom Taxonomies. Thanks!
Thanks for your update and confirmation. I am unable to reproduce your symptoms on my test system, so I will need more information to investigate further.
You wrote “If it helps I’m using Custom Taxonomies“. I added a couple of custom taxonomies using one of the MLA example plugins; Quick Edit and Bulk Edit are working fine for them. Can you tell me in more detail what taxonomies you are using and how you created them, e.g., some other plugin or PHP code? Did your taxonomies show up in the “Taxonomy Support” section of the Settings/Media Library Assistant General tab?
MLA’s Att. Categories and Att. Tags are implemented as custom taxonomies. Do they work on your system?
You can also experiment with the example plugin to see if it works on your system. To get the example plugin, navigate to the Settings/Media library Assistant Documentation tab and click the “Example Plugins” button. Type “custom” in the text box and click “Search Plugins” to filter the table.
You are looking for the “MLA Custom Taxonomy Example” plugin. Find that plugin and hover over the title in the left-most column. Click the “Install” (or “Update”) rollover action, then go to the WordPress Plugins/Installed Plugins submenu and activate the example plugin as you would any other plugin. You can also click the “Download” link to get a copy of the code for your own development, or click “View” to have a look at the code online.
Thanks for your patience and any additional information you can provide.
I am planning my next MLA version update and I would like to resolve this topic before I release the code. If you have any other information so I can investigate further, let me know. Thanks!
It has been a month since my last post in this topic. I assume you have found a solution for your Quick Edit issue.
I am marking this topic resolved, but please update it if you are still experiencing the problem and have more information I can use to investigate further.
