The Best WordPress Media Library Management Plugins

These plugins help you manage your WordPress Media Library

Happy Files

This is the de-facto standard WordPress Media Library management plugin that lets you assign your media to category folders. No actual folders are created on your server; it’s just metadata. As a bonus, it includes a gallery shortcode and Gutenberg block to display images from any categories you choose. If you update a category, it gets updated on the front end automatically. Free version is limited to ten categories, but there is an LTD for $59.

Media Library Enable Infinite Scrolling

I had a rude awakening when infinite scrolling was removed from the media library in WordPress version 5.8 and replaced with a “load more” button. It was done for accessibility reasons, but handicapping everyone is not the answer. This invaluable plugin restores infinite scroll to the WP media library. I install this on pretty much every site I have to deal with.
