How can I Filter Media Library by Author?

  • Author
  • #457901



    I set up wordpress 2.9.2 in such a fashion that any subscriber has “contributor” role and can add media to the site.

    What I want to do is for each contributor to only display the media uploaded by that contributor. In other words, in the backend if the contributor is logged in and clicks on Media I want to “filter” the results by author where author is the logged in user. At the same time i want the administrator role to be able to see all media so as to be able to delete explicit content.

    I have some php experience but have no idea where to start looking to build this “filter”.

    Thanks in advance
