Daily Upload Dir


Note: This plugin has been superseded by the much improved Custom Upload Dir.

Daily Upload Dir will:

  1. add a daily subdirectory to your upload path
  2. use the current post’s date instead of the current date. (eg: adding files to a post from 2003-03-23 will put the files in /uploads/2003/03/23)
