Last Updated: June 6, 2024

Latest News: Updated the version information.

When it comes to managing your WordPress media library files you need good plugins to do the job. I think it is best to always use a plugin instead of hacking WordPress core files. Most users are not developers and they solely rely on great plugins to do the job. After all WordPress functions very well with plugins.

The following list of plugins Media Library Categories, Media Library Assistant and more will help you manage all of your media files.

Information: Always remember to try and not have too many plugins added to your website or blog. The more plugins you add the more request and processing resources it requires to use from your server!!!

Please read the following link Help Support WordPress Plugins And Themes Developers to help support the developers.
