Can't see images uploaded via FTP (2 posts)

    Hi,

    This question had been probably asked before... a lot of times. I was trying to search for some answers but the only thing I got was back 2-3 years ago. I bet a lot had changed already.

    Anyway so I uploaded a photo in FTP. I did it locally and sure enough its now in FTP File Manager (godaddy.com) which is great. But the mind boggling question is why can't I see it on my Media page? How do I get the file from FTP to show up in wp-admin site? Please, I have been trying to search for hours and I really can't figure it out. All suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    Is there a particular reason you didn't upload you photo within WordPress itself (Media > Add New)? This would ensure that your media appears in the Media Library correctly.

    However, the Add From Server plugin does allow you to browse your server to find media that you've uploaded via FTP, and add it to the WordPress Media Library.
