Support » Plugin: WordPress Media Library Folders » Deleted Folders Multiplying

  • Resolved canadadarling



    When organizing my MLF and particularly deleting empty folders as I move their contents to new folders, the MLF has (thrice) re-created the deleted empty folders, usually in multiples of 5 or 6, re-populating the uploads menu with dozens of empty repeat folders.

    Please advise if this being caused by something I am doing incorrectly / not understanding about the plug-in.

    Thank you for reading.

    I’ve tested this and I see it is not deleting the folder and a warning message is saying the folder is not empty, but I can see there are no files in the folder. I’ll continue looking into this.

    Check to see if the folder is actually deleted from your site when you delete all of the similar names folders through Media Library Folders. Also check if you are using the current version, 5.0.3.

    Please tell me how to check if the folder is actually deleted. Also, please tell me where I can check the version number. I downloaded the plug-in within the last month.

    It seems to happen with a glitch in the browser. I’ll lose the ability to scroll within WML, then I’ll refresh the tab, and there’ll be about 60 new folders added to the MLF which are duplicates of what I have deleted in my re-organization.

    You can check if the folder was deleted by using your site file manager via the control panel or by connecting to your site by FTP.
