You can make sub-directories in the upload directory, and move files into them.
Starting with the basics - it would be good if I could upload directly into a sub-directory - instead, I need to add media and then move it - very painful when dealing with lots of media file.
Problem/Bug - I tried to move 83 documents into a sub-folder:
1. I had to manually select each one by one
2. On transfer, there was a duplicate in the sub-directory so:
a) program just exited (no option to overwrite or ignore)
b) program didn't copy any files (not even non-duplicates)
c) after program exit, it deselected all the files and I had to start selecting them all again...
It is a very basic tool - not a solution to Media directory issues
organized a huge number of files into manageable folders
updated links, fabulous! saved hours.
way slow-but not enough to not use it. I was able to shift click to select 20 img. at a time and click the arrow to move them to a new folder, and it did not choke, just took forever. Also slow on 6 img. at a time.
How do I add new images to specific folders? Do I have to move them via Media File Manager after upload?
Does the media library list utilize thumbnails generated when uploading an image?
On my header images, I deleted thumbs. perhaps that's why i cant' see preview in Media library list?
Need to move uploaded files to a single folder as I forget to disabled uploaded by month earlier.
This plugin easily move multiple files and update database information such as the image path and post that contain those images.
Really save my time and effort.
Works as expected. The UI could use some improvement (I can help with that) ;)
Doesn't appear to work as advertised. I navigated through the folder list and suddenly I had a new folder called 03. Strangely enough the new folder had lots of files already in it. Then I tried to create a folder and suddenly I had another folder called 04 that was empty. The new folder I tried to create wasn't called 04. Navigation was slow and clunky.
It saves SO much trouble slogging through all those media library pages. Thank you for your effort!
Thank you for this. Just what was looking for to arrange all my images with some kind of folder order structure. Please keep up the good work!
ugly is a personal statement
but it does not deal with pdf files in the media folder(s)
works great! just what I needed for organizing hundreds of midifiles, Why is this not in the core?
This app is very good. (And no, I do not know the author of it at all.) Very well designed and works great for organizing your media.
Media File Manager allows you to organize your media in folders. This is very useful if you are uploading a lot of images at once that are on different topics. Or if you have uploaded a certain topic or type of media over a long period of time. (For instance, I can group all my garden photos that get uploaded over the summer into one folder.) You can also have subfolders. (Tomatoes, Zuchinni, etc. ;>)
When you are ready to put your images into a blog post you can open that folder and not have to hunt and peck through your whole library.
As far as I can tell so far it does not look like you can delete images from within the Media File Manager. It just allows you to group things into folders. It also does not appear to tell you if an image has been used in a post. For those things you have to look in your main media library.
Note: I have only used this plugin with images. I have not used it with audio or video files yet.
