19.Using the Media Manager in MediaLibrary 1.5.x Shop

In the previous articles we already saw how we can fetch Media information form Amazon inside the [Media Manager]. In this article we will take a closer look at the MediaLibrary 1.5.x Shop Media Manager and see how an administrator can use that interface to Publish Unpublish, Lend or Return Medias.


The Media Manager

MediaLibrary - Media manager


In the Admin backend, go to [Components] - [MediaLibrary] - [Media]

From the Media Manager you can select one or multiple Media (checkmarks in front of the titles) and then apply actions to them with the icons in the top bar.

[Publish]

Publish selected Media

[Unpublish]

Unpublish selected Media

[Refetch Information]

Fetch information from a different Amazon server for the selected Media.

This will allow you for example to get different language information or pricing with the different currencies by selecting a different Amazon server.

The action will of course only apply to selected Media.


[Lend Media]

You can lend out the selected Media to a particular user from here:


MediaLibrary - lend media


Lent to:

Just select the user from the dropdown box

Once you have lent Media out, they will show up inside the [Media Manager] with a [Lent until:] date, as in the following screen:
