Support » Plugin: Media Sync » Possible different import directory?

  • Resolved r1bryan


    Is there a way to change the import directory to uploads/contestimages?
    This would be my permanent import location – no need for me to browse the upload directory.

    @r1bryan if you want to change it globally for the whole WordPress (including this plugin), you can add this to wp-config.php:

    define('UPLOADS', 'wp-content/uploads/contestimages');

    But if you want to change it only for this plugin, there is currently no option for that. The only thing you could try is to open this plugin with this in URL:


    When I find some time, I’ll try to make that configurable and maybe not just for sub-directories.

    Tried adding the code to wp-content and did the trick however it messes with my website images so not workable. Would be nice to quickly browse to a directory like “Add to Server” plugin does, but not a deal breaker. Media Sync is almost perfect for my needs, thanks for the plugin @erolsk8.

    Your code:
    worked for operating from contest images sub folder without affecting other parts of wordpress.

    Hi @r1bryan, I just pushed a new version (1.1.3), so if you update and go to Settings -> Media Sync, you can tell this plugin to scan only contestimages folder.

    I hope it will help, so I’m closing this topic. We can reopen if needed.
