Tagging and Categorizing Media - How? (4 posts)

    I have several hundred pdf's, word docs, powerpoints, and excel spreadsheets and even external links. I want to organize them by categories and tags. For instance, I want to categorize them by date, file type, size, localization (USA, California, EU, London, whatever), author, other preferred categories, and of course also still search for them by tags. Subcategories would be a plus too. The new media center system on 2.5 allows for title, caption, description and url.

    I need categories, tags and list order for my media.

    From there, it shouldn't be too difficult to create a drill-down browse page that will allow my viewers to find documents without a lot of hassle.

    I know it's possible. I just need to know if someone has already done this so I don't have to reinvent the wheel. Is there a plugin out there that will help me?

    You are not alone, there are enough of us asking about this. I will make the suggestion if it hasn't been made already.

    I'd like this feature too. Why aren't tags global?

    Has anyone got any further on this? WP 2.7 is now out and it still doesn't allow adding of categories to media, like links and posts have.

    Is this being worked out for a future release, or is there a plugin anywhere for this functionality? I would really love to know as I desperately need categories for media...
