  • it is not, has no one thought of that?

    Moin moin!

    There is a esay way to solute the problem. Change the presets in the admin section. In german it called…

    Einstellungen -> Verschiedenes:
    ‘Uploads in folgendem Ordner speichern’ [../mediathek]
    ‘Kompletter Pfad zu den Dateien’ []

    So if you use ‘/wordpress’ as a subdir it will be possible to use ‘/mediathek’ as an Imagefolder.

    Settings > Media > Uploads:
    Store uploads in this folder: ../img/
    Full URL path to files:
