    If you’re uploading an image, today, to post originally created in May, then the image will go into the May folder.

    Hello @sterndata, thanks for replied.

    The image that I uploaded not related to any post, it should be inside Oct folder.

    Many things can be done on an image, perhaps as an featured image for a topic/category, or use for a layout on the homepage.

    Is there a technical problem with my WordPress setup?

    Did you upload it directly from the media library or did you upload it in connection with a post?

    I uploaded directly from media library.

    Hmmm… I can’t reproduce that via

    dashboard -> media -> add new

    any my file went into 2017/10

    That’s great, it should be that way. I don’t know why this happen to my directory.

    If I remove installation and do it again, might be resolved but it is very tired process.

    Are you sure the data on the server is correct?

    Yup, the data on server are correct, you mean the images? I just noticed today all images since I started the site stored in 2017/05 only.

    When trying to access a folder that contains over 1000 images it’s quite time consuming.

    What do you have for the directory in settings->media. Also, are there any overrides in wp-config.php?

    I have done a new WordPress installation, it’s ok now.
