Add From Server
Add From Server copying files to uploads folder (6 posts)

    I'm backing the copying issue.

    I have setup several subfolders containing pictures, but every time I import them via the Add From Server plugin, the files get copied to the default WP folder.

    Does anyone know about any solutions?

    It's by design that the files are copied to the Uploads folder - that will not change.

    However, the files will NOT be copied if the folder you're importing from is within the uploads folder already, ie. /wp-content/uploads/my-custom-folder/ would not trigger a copy.

    Hi Dion,

    I've read that in rob_st_82's thread, but this is not the case. This thread is not solved as the issue remains.

    I have /wp-content/uploads/custom-folders/ containing files, and they all get copied into WP's default folder upon import, so there definitely is a bug.

    Odd, was working last time I checked.

    If it's broken, sorry, you're out of luck from me for now.
