I have some trouble with the media - uploader if I set the upload - dir outside the current wordpress-dir (../wp-uploads as upload-dir which means http://www.kiezkicker.de/wp-uploads).
I do it this way cause I have two wordpress installed - one at kiezkicker.de/blog and the other at kiezkicker.de/kiezkicker - and I want to use the same upload-folder for both of them.
The upload self work pretty fine (after I create the 2008 and 04 - folder manually cause wordpress seems unable to create a folder (04) inside a folder (2008)... did it use mkdir? LOL...). The files are stored in three versions, the original, the middle size and the thumb, all pretty fine.
But what wouldn't be working for me was the insertion of these files. I couldn't see the uploaded files inside the upload-panel.
If I use wp-content/uploads instead everything would be fine but it's annoying to upload the same images at two wordpress-installations if you would use it on both... so I decide to use the same upload-dir for both of them which don't seem to work.
Any workarounds around for that issue?
