An excellent plugin, but…

An excellent plugin that fixes a large lack of WordPress.

But, I have found a couple of drawbacks:

1. After moving an image to a folder it will be visible in the backend but not in the frontend.
I have found a solution: Regenerate the images after moving them, but of course that implies the use of a second plugin.

2. I have analyzed the performance of the plugin in an installation from 0 with P3 (Plugin Performance Profiler), and P3 offers some alarming results, I hope that it is for the absence of other plugins. I’m going to test it on a website with more plugins to see what percentage results.

If these aspects improved, I would go up to 5 stars and start using Organize Media Library by Folders in all my WordPress installations.

Works like a charm!

Thank you for this great plugin.

Note for the future users: do not like me, take the time to view all the screenshots to understand how the plugin works !

Do what WP should do by default

This plugin from version 6.04 can sort mediafiles by folders. That is what I need most of all from WordPress since I met with it. I recommend this plugin for everyone.
Great job Katsushi Kawamori!

Completely ruined my wp-posts table

I have just finished (2 days) repairing my database after using this plugin. It kindly inserted over 50,000,000 instances of
into my wp-posts table.

AVOID!! A very dangerous plugin!!!

If you’re brave nough to try yourself, make sure you have a good backup and sufficient database size headroom!
