I'd like the answer to that question, too.
I used in WP 2.05:
...after upgrading to WP 2.1x and 2.2x, this doesn't work anymore, so now if I make the option
../directory_for_uploads, then what I see in the urls becomes something ugly like:
Why did the model change after 2.1?
How do we specify now a HIGHER-level dir for uploads?
I tried everything, absolute paths starting with http://www.mydomain.com, server paths like "/home/myusername/", I tried everything, nothing works, I can't simply make the path to be one level higher than the wordpress dir :(((
Reason I'd like this to work is that I run 2 blogs on one domain, and I want all uploads to be in the main dir, like:
and not in
...or something of the sort...
Thx for any help!
PS I can hack the WP files, but it'll mean for me more difficult upgrades all the time, so a better solution is what I search for :)
Otherwise... I guess, we'll have to post a bug ticket somewhere?
