TAG for images/files1
we are a news portal with many post and many photo as intro or full image of each post or photo into the article's. so there are Thousands of Photo. sometimes we need to use old image's in new article again and again. so i think ark media must be a photo manager too ;-)
MY FEATURE REQUEST:
i think ark media can add TAG system for images/files .somthing like default tag component of joomla for article. so after uplod a image/file, it ask for tag/tags and author can enter few related tag about that image/file (or use tags which used before).
so with this feature author can simply filter and find related photo which they need from old photo of site. in this way image folder be as a useful photo bank for always;-) also it help they dont upload a photo for many time and decrease duplicate image's on server.
Thank you for your suggestion. Adding tags to images is a great suggestion. There are a couple of current obstacles to this at the moment.
Firstly, Joomla's custom fields & tagging system is built for the articles & article manager.
Secondly, the Ark Media is purely filesystem driven as opposed to database driven so there would need to be a database reference to each file to pair up the filesystem with tags & custom data. Although we aren't against this concept as it comes with a lot of other benefits, this would add an extra layer of complexity to Ark Media's structure & data, so we are currently wary of sending the Ark Media in this direction at the moment.
However, we will leave this feedback request open for further exploration & discussion.
