When your WordPress site starts to grow and you have lots of images in your library from Posts, Pages, Products and other WordPress content types, filtering the the media in your library becomes very difficult.
I thought for sure there would be a plugin available that would enable filtering of the media in my Media Library… but there wasn’t much. What I did find was a post on StackExchange from 2013 with a quick solution. So I spent a couple of days and put together the Media Library Filter plugin.
The Media Library Filter plugin allows you to filter the media in your library by taxonomy or term.
A taxonomy would be the type of category. For example some taxonomies might be Blog Categories, Product Categories, Post Tags, etc.
A term would be the name of an item in the category. For example the taxonomy Product Categories might contain the terms “Rock Climbing Shoes” and “Rock Climbing Helmets”.
