Media File Folders - Idea for a plugin

I've been using wordpress for years. I create sites and manage content for quite a few clients. I think a media file manager would be very beneficial to clients with a large spread of content that is used on a regular basis. Newspapers, photographers, and content specific bloggers would all have a need for a quick way to search content that they've already uploaded to their media file.

** maybe organized by categories on multiple levels (i.e. sports -> football -> area teams)

    Hey Ryan,

    I hope you're well and thank you for your suggestion!

    There's a robust "Media Library Assistant" plugin already available. Among other things, it adds taxonomy support (categories and tags), a few shortcodes, bulk editing capability and more. I've used it in the past on few sites and it worked quite well. You may want to take a look here:

    However, I appreciate your suggestion very much and I agree that well planned "media library" plugin would make a great enhancement to WordPress. After all, it's always better to build something that would meet expectations of users than try to "adjust expectations to already existing solution" :slight_smile:

    That said, if you have any further suggestions regarding this plugin, please feel warmly welcome to share it here. I also hope that more members of our community will support that idea and our company will then begin to work on this!

    Best regards,
    Adam
