Medialist

Description

Medialist plugin is designed to make displaying posts or attached page media, documents and more an easy process. Upload your content, attach it to a page, then place a medialist shortcode to display a neat list of items.

Features:
* Lists media attachments & posts
* Define how many items to display at a time
* Ability to toggle pagination on/off
* Multiple built-in styles
* Displays the media type and its download size
* Place the shortcode anywhere on a page/post.
* Ability to use the shortcode many times on a single page
* Identifiable icons that match the media type

The shortcode:
1. Basic [medialist] (this will display all attached media in a list on the page upto 10 items and pagination for 11+ items).
2. Advanced [medialist order= orderby= category= mediaitems= paginate= style=]

Amend the above ‘Advanced’ shortcode with:
* type=attachment (or) post
* mediatype=excel,pdf,doc,zip,ppt,text,audio,images
* order=ASC (or) DESC
* orderby=none, ID, author, title, name, type, date, modified, parent, rand, comment_count
* category=uncategorized,(any defined category taxonomy assigned to media or post items)
* mediaitems=10 (Provide a number of items you wish to display in the list before pagination)
* paginate=0 (Setting paginate to 0 will disable pagination, mediaitems number will be the max items displayed, default is 10)
* style= (There are various built-in styles, write one of the available style names below)

Available styles:
* ml-metro-light-green
