    It looked nice — I was able to create a folder and move files from the media library to it.
    I wish it would allow uploading directly to the created folder, but you can’t.
    It physically moves the files you select out of the default WordPress media library into your custom folder, which is what I wanted.
    But then you can’t do anything with those files. They can’t be inserted into a post or page. So what is the purpose of this plugin other than to waste my time and hope I’ll get over my upset and buy the Pro version.
    I recommend people look elsewhere.

    To upload to a specific folder, click on the folder and its name will appear in the Location at the top of the page. Then click the Add File button to reveal the Upload Area where you can drag and drop multiple files which will be uploaded to the currently selected folder. Please check out the articles under Support (in the Media Library Folders submenu) in the Troubleshooting Articles tab to learn how to use the plugin. Plus we answer you questions in the support forum.

    it’s useless to me if you can’t insert an image into a post or page, hence it wasted my time with false expectations. I won’t purchase a “pro” version hoping to discover if it will do what is implied and what I need.

    Hi tcloud

    The plugin does what is described it should do!!
    E.g. you can insert images uploaded with Media Library folders into post and page. Do you not see the uploaded images in the media listing if you edit a post and insert media? What other plugins are you using? It would be more helpfull if you describe what type of editor you use! Is that Gutenberg or the old editor. You could try to synchronize the folder, and check after that if the uploaded image is shown in the media list.

    I’m ready to concede the problem is me, or perhaps what I’m trying to do.
    I am storing PDF documents in the media library and they don’t show up when I try to insert into a post.

    Hi tcloud

    Media Library Folders can also handle PDF files!. They are shown nicely in the Media list when you want to insert them into a post or page. It will be inserted as a link into the document. If you want to show a picture, then you need to upload an image first that makes clear that you have placed a PDF document on the server!! Then you can add a link to the PDF file for the image. Below the link that is put into the post or page.
    href=”https://somehost.com/wp-content/uploads/files/some.pdf”>This is a link to my PDF>
    So the plugin is working as intended!
    Regards,

    I can see the pdf files in the Media Library, even though my host won’t allow the Ghost and Imagick required to see the thumbnail for them.
    When I use the Gutenberg editor (haven’t tried classic) in a post or page and choose Image and select a Media Library Folder, images are shown but no pdf file shows, so can’t choose it. I can choose to upload at that point and that works, but still can’t see the pdf file.
    I work with a test wordpress install, but I have a live site that needs numerous pdf newsletters — https://rcswa.org. I will turn this over to the client in a few days and really wanted to have something simple for them to use.

    hi tcloud

    Now you are making a proper explanation of your problem.
    So if I understand it correctly Gutenberg does not show the PDF.
    So that is an issue that Max Foundry needs to research.
    It might be a Gutenberg problem, which Max Foundry cannot resolve.
    I have tested this with the classic and SiteBuilder plugin.
    There the PDF is show for insertion.
    Alan can you give your opinion about this please?
    Regards,
    Peter

    If one chooses the image icon in Gutenberg, no PDFs are displayed in the popup, only images. You have to choose the file icon and then the media popup will display both PDFs and images.
