#33243 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

Attaching media files - bad user experience

  • Go to Media Library (list view)
  • Select "Unattached" in dropdown
  • Column "Uploaded to" disappears

It is not possible to reattach some older media files and I have to search for them in Media library. So "Unattached" option in dropdown is almost useless...

I did not find any was how to attach or dettach media files in grid view?

Now I see it :-)

I did not notice this hidden link and I do not believe that anybody does. It is unexpected change (missing column) when you select "Unattached". Also when you are in "Unattached" part and attach some file, then this file disappears (it is no longer "Unattached"). I understand that it has some logic, but you should try to attach several hundreds media files, it is not very user friendly. You would like to see which (previously unattached) file was attached to which content, etc.
