Grab and Attach
The purpose of Grab and Attach is to automatically upload media into your WordPress Media Library and attach it to live posts or pages.
There are two sides to WP Grab and Attach; the WordPress plugin and the Chrome extension. Please note that this plugin does NOT work without its Chrome extension companion. You can find the Chrome extension here:
Currently, all that can be uploaded and attached are images from the Chrome browser. That will change in future versions. We also plan to make extensions for other browsers.
The WP Grab and Attach Chrome extension allows the option “WP Grab and Attach” to be added to your Chrome’s right-click (context) menu. Once “WP Grab and Attach for Chrome” is activated, you can right-click on images and select “WP Grab and Attach.” A dialog box will appear, and if your Chrome extension’s setup is correct, you can type in a post (or page) title. Then use your mouse or the Up or Down Arrow keys to highlight your selection and the Enter button to select your post. A success message will appear if everything goes well, and the image will be saved to your WordPress Media Library. But let’s remember the best part, the image is attached to your live post (or page)!
Again, PLEASE NOTE:
This plugin does NOT work without its Chrome extension companion. You can find the Chrome extension here:
COMING SOON: MORE OPTIONS! Like..
- More media types than just images
- Choosing if media attaches to the top or bottom of the post
- Alignment of media
- Media captions
- Order of titles in Chrome extension’s auto-populate box
- What to search for: post/pages/tags/etc.

After activating Grab and Attach, adding and editing a post or page will create a new meta box in the right-hand sidebar tools. In it, you can set an alternate post title that populates the Chrome extension drop-down.
You can enable and disable the plugin’s functionality from the options page in the WordPress dashboard under Settings.
