Support » Fixing WordPress » Upload path – missing field – WP-Admin > Settings > Media files

  • Hi. I have installed versions 3.6 and 3.6.1, and at the settings in the media files, where is the set maximum size field, is missing upload default and the full path to the file. To make it visible that field, you must go into the database, at the options and add a some folder name..

    To understand, install wordpress, and go to settings, media files.. upload path to.. is missing..

    missing upload default and the full path to the file

    This was removed in WordPress 3.6 (or possibly 3.5 – I don’t recall exactly). It’s now been moved to the wp-config.php file.

    You mean you can set that field in wp-config.php? It wasn’t useful that shortcut in admin panel?

    (Sorry to say, but, for me, it seems like a one step back.. regarding WP)…

    I looked in the the confif file. There’s no such option..

    I know how to edit wp-config, mister..

    Where is the media files “upload path” ??? That is the question..

    I’m not a “mister”, thank you.

    And the uploads folder default to wp-content/uploads.

    Hi, i got a image upload error problem. Then I go to setting->media->delete the “Uploading file” link. After I did that…the field in box never comes up again!!

    Anyone can help please?!?!!!

    Apparently the only thing that esmi knows about this topic is gender differentiation and probably should’ve left this one alone. That is not what you call support.

    What she was trying to tell you is that you can override any of these settings by defining its respective constant (rather than editing the database) in wp-config.php.

    Make a section for yourself, with a comment line, for overrides, then paste the following on its own line:

    define(‘UPLOADS’, ‘wp-content/uploads’);

    Inside the second argument, you should put the relative path to your uploads directory (either way, it defaults to wp-content/uploads). Keep in mind, this will not bring the option under settings back, but you can just use config.php in the future.
