Media Library Enhancements

Description

  1. Ability to create your own folder structure within the media library. It is currently extremely difficult, not only to find files, but just to keep things organized. For example, if I create a landing page on my site, I would want to group all images for that landing page together in one folder that I can easily find. Just creating a folder by date doesn't work because the date changes every month and web development work can span several months.

The following items would also be welcome additions:

  1. More options for the Bulk Update menu (resize, unattach, etc.)
  2. Built-in functionality to unattach an image (I know there is a plugin to do this)
  3. When accessing the library from writing a post/page, the ability to insert multiple items at the same time, rather than just one at a time.

I am actually kind of shocked that such things don't yet exist in WordPress since it has been around so long and has such a large contributing community.

Hi @cricket346, welcome to Trac! Thanks for the ticket.

Ability to create your own folder structure within the media library.

For reference, this was previously suggested in #23594 (also related: #23451).

Built-in functionality to unattach an image (I know there is a plugin to do this)

This is already possible in List mode, see #6820.

When accessing the library from writing a post/page, the ability to insert multiple items at the same time, rather than just one at a time.

This is already possible by either selecting multiple items using Ctrl key or creating a gallery.

Thanks for the reply.
"For reference, this was previously suggested in #23594 (also related: #23451)."

Those posts are both 4 years old. Still no folder structure after 4 years?
