Dynamic galleries or playlists means you do not need to re-create a gallery or a playlist each time you (re)-assign media items to categories.

Enhanced Media Library allows to enhance WordPress native media shortcodes gallery and playlist to make them understand media taxonomies, upload date, and media items number limit. Such taxonomy-based shortcode will always display media items that belong to a particular category in real time.

  • monthnum
