[Resolved] Adding custom taxonomy to a Mediapress form

This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.

Problem: I'm using Buddypress and the Mediapress plugin to allow users to create their own image galleries and upload photos to those galleries. I created a custom taxonomy for the galleries so that I can create views that are filtered by that taxonomy. The only issue is that I need to add a taxonomy input field (radio buttons) to the gallery creation page (template) so that users can select the appropriate taxonomy term when they create a gallery. Is this possible?

Solution: If it is created/setup by the plugin "mpp-gallery", then it depends on plugin "mpp-gallery", I suggest you ask help from the author of plugin "mpp-gallery", check if it supports custom taxonomies.

Dear Clay,

How do you setup the "gallery creation page" and the form in your screenshot?

It actually turns out that the Mediapress plugin author already has a plugin to add categories to those galleries, so that part is solved. However, I'm having an odd issue with the view that I'm using to display a list of these galleries. Here's my view loop:

	<ul class="wpv-loop js-wpv-loop pyo-gallery-item">
		<wpv-loop>
			<li>
                <p class="pyo-gallery-thumbnail">[wpv-post-body view_template="mpp-gallery-thumbnail" id="[wpv-post-field name='_mpp_cover_id']"]</p>
              	<p class="pyo-gallery-title">[wpv-post-link]</p>
				<p class="pyo-gallery-author">[wpv-post-author]</p>
			</li>
		</wpv-loop>
	</ul>

If my "mpp-gallery-thumbnail" content template simply contains the shortcode [wpv-post-featured-image] then my view displays the first screenshot. That looks fine, but I want to use a custom size and I want the thumbnail cropped. But if I use the shortcode [wpv-post-featured-image size='custom' width='320' height='320' crop='true' crop_horizontal='center' crop_vertical='top'] then the view displays both thumbnails, one default and the other custom (second screenshot). The last screenshot is what Firebug displays for the first item in the loop when I use the custom image shortcode. Thanks!
