Hierarchical taxonomy UI is a text input on media files

I just tried applying a hierarchical custom taxonomy to media files as well as posts. It does appear in the upload and edit screens, but it's a text input (just like a non-hierarchical taxonomy) instead of a set of checkboxes.

I tried doing the same thing by registering a taxonomy to the "attachment" post type and was not able to get a ui only a meta box under the file URL box. This is code I used to register the taxonomy:

register_taxonomy('media-type',array('attachment'), array(
    'hierarchical' => true,
    'labels' => $labels,
    'show_ui' => true,
    'query_var' => true,
    'rewrite' => array( 'slug' => 'media-type' ),

  • Component changed from Taxonomy to Media
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release
  • Type changed from defect (bug) to feature request

I think there's a plugin for this called Media Tags.


Beyond that, this sounds like a media feature request.
