I want a single uploads folder, NOT organized by month/year (4 posts)

    I used to be able to tell WordPress to NOT Organize my uploads into month- and year-based folders on the Miscellaneous settings page but now that seems to be the default setting and I don't see where to change it.

    I'm trying to let users upload mp3 files using the media uploader and have them all go into a single UPLOADS folder for each blog - NOT one organized by month/year - so podPress can find them easily. With the 'misc' settings page gone, how would I set this up?

    Rewind it is not in settings for site or network admin?

    It was moved to Admin > Settings >Media, but I have just checked (multi-site) and it has gone!

    Right, on that menu I have "image sizes" and "embeds" but the "uploading files" settings are nowhere to be found.

    on /wp-admin/network/settings.php we have the following settings:

    Media upload buttons
    Site upload space
    Upload file types
    Max upload file size

    ..but no uploads folder organization settings.

    Here's what I did.. I went into:

    ..and changed "Uploads Use Yearmonth Folders" from 1 to 0.

    That did the trick.

    This worked but it would be easier if the switch was put back under "media"!
