I want to store my images outside the standard /wp-content/gallery/ directory.
I've tried changing the gallery path to the following:
1. absolute path - /home/domainname/storage-area
All this did was create that pathname under /wp-content/
(You can use this trick on the WordPress install to change the default 'upload' folder, so I was hoping it might work on nextgen)
2. relative path - ../../domainname/storage-area
This told me I'd created a gallery and said I'd managed to upload images, however I couldn't find anything when I checked my directories, and the gallery itself was missing images. The path name on the images was however correct, so its almost working.
I checked permissions on my new 'storage-area' directory and made sure they matched permissions on /wp-content/gallery, but its still not working.
Is this possible, or do you have any ideas how I could proceed?
As ever, any advice is greatly appreciated.
