Filter documents in WordPress media library

The WordPress media library has a few nice features for managing uploaded files. One thing it doesn't do is make it easy to find documents. It makes it easy to filter all the files to list only the images, or video, or even audio files, but not documents like PDFs, Word documents, spreadsheets etc. But adding a Documents link to the media library is just a few lines of code away.

Autocomplete in WordPress plugin admin

I just had to find a way to add autocomplete to an admin screen for a WordPress plugin I'm writing. Although a few pieces of jQuery UI are bundled into the WordPress distribution, that doesn't include jQuery UI autocomplete. But on the way to investigating how to drop that into my plugin, I discovered that WordPress does bundle in a similar, simpler plugin called jquery.suggest.
