I’m proud to say I’ve finally released Media-Tags 3.0 to the general public and it is available via the WordPress plugin repository http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/media-tags/. Thanks to all who contributed ideas, bug reports and support in this milestone development. And my apologies for taking so long to get this out.
This plugin contains many new features. Some highlighted items are:
- Bulk Administration of media items This feature on both the Media > Library and Media Upload popup for the Post admin screen allow you to assign/remove Media-Tags to a selected group of media items. In previous versions you would need to edit each media item.
- Roles management Under the Media-Tags Settings panel is a new Roles management panel. This panel allows you to fine tune the access by individual users.
- Internationalization This is a much needed and requested features. Now all text handled by the plugin are using the WordPress i18n hooks to support translation into other languages.
- Removed over 1000 lines of custom code This old code was used to provide basic functionality for the tagging and URL rewrites. Since WordPress core functions have progressed over the last two years this custom code is no longer needed. This means the plugin will run cleaner and is more stable than previous releases.
- Better support for WordPress standard Taxonomy templates In the past the plugin has supported a custom theme template, mediatag.php. The plugin now support the more standard WordPress templates taxonomy-media-tags.php.
- A new Help section This new Help section provides many topics from general use to shortcodes tricks to template files support questions. Check it out.
- Many other features have been added. Too many to mention here.
