常見問題

How to use separate categories for the WordPress Media Library (and don’t use the same categories as in posts & pages)?

By default the WordPress Media Library uses the same categories as WordPress does (such as in posts & pages). If you want to use separate categories you can use a custom taxonomy, this can be set under Settings → Media (or click on the settings quicklink on the WordPress plugins overview page).

How to use category in the [gallery] shortcode?

To only show images from one category in the gallery you have to add the ‘category‘ attribute to the [gallery] shortcode.
The value passed to the ‘category‘ attribute can be either the category slug or the term_id, for example with the category slug:

[gallery category="my-category-slug"]

Or with term_id:

[gallery category="14"]

If you use an incorrect slug by default WordPress shows the images that are attached to the page / post that is displayed. If you use an incorrect term_id no images are shown.

Aside from this behavior, the [gallery] shortcode works as it does by default with the built-in shortcode from WordPress (see the WordPress gallery shortcode codex page). If you only want to show attachments uploaded to the page and filtered by category than use the ‘id‘ in combination with the ‘category‘ attribute. For example (the id of the post is 123):

[gallery category="my-category-slug" id="123"]

Or leave id empty for current page / post:

[gallery category="my-category-slug" id=""]

In this example the slug is used, but you could also use the term_id.

How can I filter on categories when inserting media into a post or page?

This feature is only available in the premium version

Thank you, a great plug-in. With almost 14,000 photos and after I lost all my categories with Enhanced Media Library plugin which I used for 6 years, this plugin (Media Library Categories) gave me a chance to make new categories again. Hope there will be a choice to remove the appearance of number of photos in each category. Cheers

After using the free version for an evening, I popped for the pro version. I found this to be a terrific addition to my media library toolkit as it provides good options for categorizing images. This is helpful when I've uploaded dozens of images and categorized them, and I'm ready to create topic-based sliders or galleries. I can now easily select a category, then choose images within that category without scrolling through 100's of unrelated images. The developer is responsive and helful to questions.

So the plugin imports all categories from posts to media categories. So that isn't right. Why is that? Then if you delete a category from media then automatically delete the category from posts. So all is a mess. Disappointed.

This was exactly what I was looking for, it installed without any issues and so far appears to be working just fine. A small improvement would be the ability to filter the media list to see only images that have not been categorized at all. Or, at least allow the the media list to be sorted by using the 'Categories' label at the top of the categories column in the list. Many thanks.

I had to do the functions.php fix in the FAQ, and also had to make it "media_categories" and not "categories_media". I don't know if that was just me, but if anyone runs into problems try that, also make sure you don't have extra quotes or anything copy straight from the code box. After buying Premium, i could transition from Enhanced Media Library to this one. I have over 20,000 images and was not looking forward to reorganizing them. The only things missing in this plugin are grid editing, and bulk delete/assign from grid. Grid is just so much easier when dealing with lots of files. If that capability is added all will be gold. That nag aside, I'm using this now and look forward to more improvements.

When using the Media Library Categories with WPML with separate media categories from post categories; then it looses it's wpml compatibility, is there a fix for this? (When it shared the categories with the posts the categories were seperate from wpml languages) Meaning the separate media categories is not seperate from each WPML languages but instead are shared across languages. If you look into this for me I will gradly translate the plugin to danish as it's my native language as I would like to have this plugin for my multilanguage site.
