    When I view the path for a media file, I only see the base directory being used, not the custom upload directory. I’ve also tried some of the other available placeholders but nothing seems to work. The path is always


    Thanks in advance for any insight anyone can provide.

    The Custom Upload Dir currently only applies custom path’s to files that are uploaded (attached) to posts. When I wrote it I wasn’t aware there even was a stand-alone media upload thingy. 🙂

    It’s on my todolist to have this fixed, obviously. For now; make sure you save your drafts or publish the post before uploading files to it. This ensures all data (dates, post author, categories etc) is available for the plugin to use.

    Also be aware that Custom Upload Dir does not move your previously uploaded files. It only deals with new uploads.

    I just realized there’s been a long-standing bug on my todolist with the author name. 🙂

    I’ve committed 3.0.2 now; it fixes %post_author% and timestamps for files uploaded without a post.

    Please try it out and let me know if there’s problems.

    Thanks for the quick update. It appears to be working now!

    Definitely looking forward to the updated functionality for the stand-alone media library. Thanks for all your hard work.

    Still not working with %ID% & %post_author% for WordPress 3.2.1 Will you check and fix this?
