Media App

The Media App allows you to browse, sort media, upload new media and delete media.

Media app overview

Browse & Sort Media

You can browse and sort media using the filters located at the top of the Media App. You can sort by the following:

  • Type - Filter by All, Photo, Document, Video and Audio.
  • Display As - Arrange media items in a List or Grid (Default) layout.
  • Label - Filter media items by label.
  • Sort By - Sort media items by ID, Date Uploaded (Default) or Last Modified.
  • Order - Sort by Ascending or Descending (Default).

You can restore the filters to default using the Reset Filters button.

Upload Media

The Media App allows you to add graphics in common web formats to Assistant. The WordPress media library doesn't support .svg graphics by default, but the Assistant Plugin adds .svg graphics without the need for a third-party plugin or custom code.

  1. Open the Media App.
  2. Click the Plus (+) icon.
  3. Choose files or drop the file onto the box to upload.

Edit Media

You can edit a media item by clicking it. This displays the following sections:

  • Metadata – You can edit the Title, Alternative text, and Description fields.
  • Info – non-editable information about file size, file type, when uploaded, and who uploaded.
  • Links – File URL and attachment URL.
  • Labels – Add custom labels here.
  • Actions – Includes the following actions:
    • View Attachment - This will take you to the attachments page, for example
    • Save to Library - Adds the media item to a library.
    • Edit in Admin - Opens the Edit Media page in the WordPress admin dashboard.
    • Delete – See the section on deleting items below.
