Works - but badly interferes with some WP functionality
By ,

Yes, this plugin does a bunch of stuff it says it will do (I haven't tested everything) BUT ... I've run into two really annoying problems with it. First let me share the post I was about to make on the WordPress Forum before I got the brainwave that this plugin might be the cause of my problem:

"Ok, yes I've searched the web for answers to this question, but the solutions I have found do not fit my scenario, which is this:

I need to update an image. So I delete that image using "delete permanently" in the media library. I check that the image is deleted via ftp - it's gone, but the image still shows up on the website. It even shows up when I go to it's direct url (eg - http://www.site.com/wp-content/uploads/image.jpg). Clear my cache, it still shows. Double check the ftp - the image is NOT there. Try another browser - still shows. Try another computer - still shows. WHAT THE *&%$!! IS GOING ON???

It's as though there's another secret copy of the image somewhere that keeps getting referenced instead of the correct one whenever a call to the given url is made, regardless of whether an image at the given url even exists!

FYI - I've also tried using the "Enable Media Replace" and "Force Regenerate Thumbnails" plugins, verified that the image and all versions of it's thumbnails are updated, and still the old image shows up instead.

The only method that has been able to sort-of resolve the issue has been uploading the images with different names and re-linking to the newly named images."

When I deactivate this plugin, the strange behavior goes away (plugin off = if I delete an image from the library, it doesn't show on the website). If I reactivate the plugin the problem returns.

The other issue that this plugin has caused for me is that it interferes with image uploading from some interfaces. I'm currently creating a site using the "X" theme. In it's customization interface you can upload images for the site background. When this plugin is activated, images don't upload at all.

I would love to love this plugin, but I can't.

FYI - there would still be lots of room for improvement even without these issues ... though it would still be a big improvement over the default media handling.

Good jobs

the greatest plugin for the media management.

you could make a drop down menu for the list of category in the upload avec jquery, maybe?

thanks, five stars

Great tool - just need bulk update

I've tried a number of media category tools and this one is fantastic - I like how it keeps post categories separate from media categories because once you mix them in together, things get messy for the authors.

The only thing I would need to make this perfect is ability to do bulk updates (add category and remove category) as I have existing sites that have 300+ media files that would need to be individually opened/modified/saved.

I would be willing to pay a plugin fee for a premium version of this plugin with that functionality (CodeCanyon for example) - hint hint!

Good job!

Works Great. Just one request.

Love this plugin.

Just needs one thing....

The ability to restrict mime types per user role.

The Admin should be able to upload ALL mime type, while certain mime types should be restricted to Authors and Editors.

Please consider in next update.

PS - All the best to your health

A must for any image heavy sites

This plugin makes handling media a breeze. Certain fields require images of specific sizes and this plugin makes it incredibly simple to categorise those sizes, and then find them later on.

Would recommend to any WordPress user.

Perfect just what I wanted.

I have a lot of different documents and image types so having the ability to filter by MIME type is fabulous to find what I want easily.

Great Plugin

I looked at all the image library plugin options and this one took less overhead and did everything I needed it to do. I'd love to see a "Quick Edit" option for bulk adding of tags on the main Media Library page, but this is a great start!

Pefeito

Muito bom cumpre o que promete e ainda da para vocĂȘ personaliza os nomes para deixa-lo como vocĂȘ quer ver va-le a pena usa-lo nota 1.000

Great Plugin for media management

Once the bulk edit is working, it will get 5 stars!
