RML (Real Media Library) is one of the most wanted media wordpress plugins. It is easy to use and it allows you to organize your thousands of images in folders. It is similar to wordpress categories like in the posts.

Product Description

WP Real Media Library is a WordPress plugin that allows you to easily manage your media library in your blog. Using this plugin, you’ll be able to organize the thousands of images, audio, video, and PDF files in your media library in folders. Basically, it’s like WordPress categories for your media library.

Why do you need this plugin? Well, having a growing WordPress blog means that you’ll be adding a lot of new media files, like images, audio, and PDF, into your database every day. In a few weeks, your blog will be filled with thousands of media files. How are you going to find one of those files at a later time?

Of course, you can use the WordPress search function and spend a couple of hours finding a file, but who can even remember the names of thousands of files and what happens then?

That’s where the WP Real Media Library plugin comes in. With this plugin, you can easily create gallery folders for your images and normal folders for other media files to properly organize your media library. So that next time whenever you need to find a file, it’s only a mouse-click away.

Organizing your blog media files with WP Real Media Library plugin is as easy as dragging and dropping the files into folders. Then you can rearrange the order of your files by dragging them around to bring the important files to the top of the list for quicker access.

The Tree View of your folders will also make things easier for you to quickly find specific folders in a split-second.

In addition, you can use the WP Real Media Library plugin to insert media galleries to your posts directly from the WordPress ‘New Post’ editor. This will allow you to insert an entire media folder into your WordPress posts as a customizable gallery.

WP Real Media Library is a must-have WordPress plugin that will help save you a ton of time that goes into managing your media files.

Structure

As you can see from the screenshots RML (Real Media Library) supports three different folder types:

  • The normal folder: A folder can contain every type of file and collections, but no galleries. If you want to create a subfolder simply select a folder from the list and click this button.

  • The collection: A collection can contain no files. But you can create there other collections and galleries. The mentioned above gallery is only a gallery data folder, that means they are not automatically in your frontend (your website).
    You can create a visual gallery from this gallery data folder via the Visual Editor in your page/post.

  • The gallery folder: A gallery data folder can only contain images. It is simplier for you to distinguish where your visual galleries are.
    You can also order the images into a custom image order per drag&drop.

FAQ

Question? Write a comment here or have a look at the official RML FAQ

  • If I move images around in my folders will they still be referenced correctly on the frontend wordpress site?
    • Yes, do not worry about references.
  • How do I update to a newer version of RML?
    • Very simple: deactivate and delete the old version and upload the new version. The folders stay the same.
  • Is there a way to select multiple files to be put into a folder?
    • Just use the ‘bulk select’ Button in media grid. If you are using table mode check the entries and move.
  • When i create a post i want to select an image from a specific folder, can i do this with this plugin?
    • Yes, you can filter in a insert-dialog with the dropdown beside the search.
  • Why three different folder types?

Installation and Compatibility

If you buy this item you will become an introduction how to install the plugin.

The real media library is compatible with all wordpress themes and plugins. For example: You bought a theme on themeforest like the X Theme, Avada, Bridge, Salient, Be Theme or Enfold? No Problem! It also works great with Visual Composer, Justified Image Grid and Slider Revolution, Elementor and Beaver Builder..

Justified Image Grid

Justified Image Grid (external premium plugin): With the obvious visual advantage of JIG, a more important feature was created.

    Hi Matthias, I will continue my question here (originally posted it to the wrong category) regarding the size of inserted images to a post. I'm using your plugin for some time now and somehow have not encountered this issue before. All images were placed in hi-res without me doing anything extra. I'm not sure what changed but now when I do this task (inserting images from the media library to a post through WP Real Media Library - it places it in 300x200 versions (not as hi-res as it seemed to do before). To double check I opened few previous posts and indeed images there have width="2000" height="1332 line but now it doesn't have a display size command but instead it links to an actual smaller-sized version of an actual image. Not sure what am I doing differently this time, if you have any thoughts please share.

    Hello. I bought the Real Media Library plugin, and I would like to set another catalog as default. It is annoying when all the pictures in the MEDIA directory are cleared after entering the Media tab. I see that the folders that are created in Real Media Library are only visible to the administrator. They do not change the source of the files.

    No, they do not load after clicking. WordPress has a built-in lazy loading functionality in grid view. That means, if you scroll down more and more pictures are loaded.

Will it be usable without real media library or would it be another plugin to pay for ? If i must buy 2 diffrent plugins would there be a discount prices if we buy both of them ? How is your plugin "Physical Custom Upload Folder" avaiable on wordpress.org different from "physical press" ? you were talking about few months ago ? Thank you

    Hello there. WP RML is using an own kind of taxonomy to manage the folders. This has the advantage to use the image categories for its own. WP Media Folder simply uses the attachment categories. Currently, there is no "Category importer". Best regards, Matthew :)

    Great. Also when you're in the page and add media, it would be nice to make a category/album from there. Without first going to media, make an album/category. But i think if you add that tree on the left, you will automatically add the add album/category too in top section of the tree. Cheers UPDATE: see image for more information what i mean, don't forget to add the slider and the bulk options there as well. http://i.imgur.com/FoaUd2y.jpg
    UPDATE 2: I see that when you hover on add folder/add collection, it doesn't show a cursor pointer. You should add that:

    #rml-add-new-folder, #rml-add-new-collection { cursor: pointer; }
    Yes I do like to help if I see potential in a plugin (Y)
