Lack of image info or Sorting capability in the Edin Theme media library

    This looks to be a good theme for me, but I need to use a lot of gallery images.

    I believe that the img info displayed in media library is influenced by the Theme. Edin does not allow any captions in Grid View or any kind of SORT function (perhaps this a WP.com limitation).

    This seems to be a SERIOUS oversight, can anyone help with this as it will be a nightmare trying to find the images that I require without continual scrolling.

    Many thanks, Paul Hooper

    The blog I need help with is cotswoldhandyco.wordpress.com.

    It is not.

    Edin does not allow any captions in Grid View or any kind of SORT function (perhaps this a WP.com limitation).

    Other than displaying all, the only sorting available is by month and year. It is a serious WP limitation. There’s no sorting by title, by alphabetic order, nor by precise date,.

    Welcome to our nightmare. Been dealing with this for several years. While you can’t sort by post or page, if you happen to have uploaded all of the images that are attached to, or merely embedded in a post (or page), they will run in reverse chronological order in your media library. You may also search by title, or keyword.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Actually, I noticed this morning that there are pop-up arrows beside each item in the Header, i.e. File, Uploaded to, comment etc & if you click on these, the columns will Sort into the relevant order. Anyway, it’s a start!

    @ paulhooper,
    I’m not sure what you are referring to. Do you mean the drop-down menu under “All media items” in the grid view, which includes the options “All media items,” “Images,” “Audio,” “Video,” and “Unattached”? I’d forgotten about this because I seldome use the grid view. The list view doesn’t have all of those options. Instead it has only “All,” “Images,” and “Unattached.” The month/year options are available in each mode.
