    Hello,
    if somebody managed to make this plugin work, I will be happy to know where my damn file is gone ! :-) (OK, I found them in the uploads directory). And how to manage the options with shortcode. Thank you.

    By default the plug-in will upload to the default WordPress upload folder. Which will be in wp-content/uploads in a default WordPress installation. If you have the 'Organize my uploads into month- and year-based folders' option checked in the Miscellaneous options admin page, the folder would be wp-content/uploads/2010/05 if you uploaded a file in May 2010.

    To manage the where files are uploaded to you can use the folder attribute with the absolute path to the folder. For example:

    [uploadify folder='/path/to/the/upload/folder']

    What the exact path will be will depend on your web host.

    Ok, thank you. I will make a post on your plugin on my plugins blog. It's the first upload plugin what managed big uploads on my webhosting.

    This still isn't quite clear in regards to the custom folder.
    I've tried a variety of settings and the only thing that works is the default uploads folder without custom settings. Which on of these would upload the file into a folder called "test" within "wp-content":

    Assuming it recognizes the site as the base directory
    [uploadify folder='/wp-content/test']

    Full site url
    [uploadify folder='/somesite.com/wp-content/test']
    [uploadify folder='http://somesite.com/wp-content/test']

    Full server url
    [uploadify folder='.home/user/sites/somesite.com/wp-content/test']

    I can't satisfy myself that it has actually uploaded the doc. Seems to work well but I can't find the image anywhere. Not going to default in uploads.

    Did you ever solve this issue? I want to have Uploadify put my files in a unique folder, not the default. Can't figure this out to save my life.

    With no folder option set, look at the page source code. This will show the path to your default WordPress upload folder. This will be where files go by default when uploaded with Uploadify. If you want to change the folder, you can copy the default path and change it as needed. That should help to get to to the right place.

    Many thanks Shazahm. It does work!!! I followed the example from the source code and changed it to the file I've made for uploads.

    Now... can you help with changing the look??!! I want it to do single up loads. How do I change that?? :) Have looked at the source code on
    http://www.uploadify.com/demo/ and can't see how to adapt to my own.
