Support » Plugin: WordPress Media Library Folders » Moved Images are no longer attached to post

  • Resolved AnaKelly


    Hi I am trying to organize my media file…. I love the idea of your plugin …

    But there is one thing I am having a problem with…

    when I move images they no longer show … they display as broken images.. and I have to reattach them.

    Is there anyway stop this from happening?

    Thank you,

    Yes Ana, images in the text of your post and pages contain the location or path to those images and these locations will be incorrect if you move any of the existing images. A post’s feature image is not affected by this, since its location is fetched from database each time it’s displayed. We were not expecting users of MLP to move their existing post images.

    If you know the location of your broken images and you understand HTML you can edit each post using the Text tab of the post editor and change it to the correct path. Otherwise, delete and reinsert the images using the Add Media button.


    Thank you for your quick reply…..

    That is what I have been doing just wanted to make sure there wasn’t a better way..

    Thanks again

    I’ll include a warning about this with the move button text in the next release.
