I love that WordPress gives us a full range of wonderful permalink and page structure URLs so we can make them look clean and friendly.
But when I upload a file, the path isn't clean, and isn't really under my control.
A file is uploaded to http://www.example.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/file
I have tried to use something like: http://www.example.com/pix/file
The closest I have got is this: http://www.example.com/wordpress/../pix/file
That is ugly!
I could re-design my site to install /wordpress/ as my html root directory, but it would be nice to separate this out more cleanly--after all, uploaded content really could/should be someplace other than theme/plugin content--they aren't used the same way or sometimes even by the same person.
(If somebody else already asked for this, my apologies--I can't figure out how to search this forum well enough to see it)
