If you follow me on Twitter, I’ve been yapping a bit more lately about Attachments, my WordPress plugin that lets you append assets from your Media Library to Pages, Posts, and Custom Post Types in a very simple way. Until now, Attachments has used it’s own method of browsing and inserting media, but I’ve always wanted to refine the process a bit. I’m glad to say that in 1.5, it’s definitely refined.
There’s now a single action to upload and attach assets:
Clicking the Attach button now brings up the very familiar, WordPress native browse modal dialog. You can upload directly in line, and also attach your media straight away!
You also have the option of browsing and searching your existing media:
You can continue attaching media, and once you’re done, just close the dialog and your Attachments are ready to go:
I’m really liking the new user experience this change brings about, but I’ve already discovered some bugs I’ll squash over the next few days. If you haven’t yet, check out Attachments, and if you have a minute I’d love a rating and a confirmation that it’s working in your install!
