This question already has an answer here:
The new media library is awesome but its a bit inefficient. When the page loads, it puts ALL MEDIA ITEMS as the default view. Which causes the page to load a LOT of images. I'd like it to default to "Uploaded to this post".
I've tried other solutions, such as changing the default selection Change the default-view of Media Library in 3.5?
But this is done via JS and when there's a lot of images on the page, it first starts loading the "ALL MEDIA ITEMS" tab and then switches tabs to "Uploaded to this post" so I think the better way to do this would be to reorder the select box so that "Uploaded to this post" is first and the default.
I'm not sure how to go about doing that. Or if its even possible with filters. Would love some feedback from the experts. Thanks!
