    Hello.
    I have a wp multisite that consists so far by 4 sites, I want the two of them to use the same media base. Is this possible?

  2. Not right now. Sites are content-segregated.

    So, I have to wait and see for the next version to see this function?

  4. Or find a plugin. It's not by design, and I doubt it'll be coming in core any time soon.

    * This is not direct solution for shared user-upload media, but can be a handy option for cross-network static files, and might provide you with an option of sorts.

    When using multisite with sub-domains and domain mapping all mapped sites can easily share static files. As new sites are mapped to the primary domain, you can simply add a folder to the root level of your server and acts as a relative folder for every mapped domain. Kinda.

    For Example

    New Folder = img
    Create Folder @ yourwpmsdomain.com/img

    Then all domains (mapped and install) lead to /img
    yourwpmsdomain.com/img
    mappeddomain1.com/img
    mappeddomain2.com/img
    allmappeddomains.com/img

    * Works with any folder, and sub-folder.
    ** Comes with caveats

  6. Bear in mind, nothing shows up in the media pages :)

    Yep it's only useful for theme assets.

    I did find a shared media plugin on WordPress.org which might help B_Dark.
