    I saw in an older post that a non-standard uploads folder was not supported about a year ago. Has anything changed on that issue?

    You can use the UPLOADS define statement
    define( 'UPLOADS', 'blog/wp-content/uploads' );
    which is demonstrated in the Edit wp-config page, to move or rename your site’s uploads folder to a different location. However, it must remain under the wp-content folder as Media Library Folders looks for ‘wp-content’ when it is processing URLs.

    Hmm… for me it seems to work even outside the wp-content folder with the define statemment of

    define( 'UPLOADS', 'media' );

    The only thing that doesn’t seem consistent is the name of the root folder still beeing ‘uploads’.

    This restriction is not addressed in the PRO version, is it?

    Both the free and the Pro work the same with the location of the uploads folder. It has not been tested with the uploads folder in that location.

    Was the new location and name of the uploads folder defined before installing Media Library Folders? If not, you should do a database reset with the Media Library Folders Reset plugin.

    The new location of the uploads folder was defined after the installation of MLF. Your proposal seems to work but I think I will stick with the default location if it is not officially supported.
