wp-content/uploads folder - can be renamed? (3 posts)

    I am going to manually convert my old MT blog into WP.

    What I really like about MT was that YOU got to determine just where the images went upon upload and on the fly:
    ex.
    photos/2010/party/us.jpg

    With WP all I see as options are:
    wp-content/uploads
    with the month / year option

    So I wonder if uploads could be renamed to 'photos'
    and if I can add folders to that at the time of uploading..

    And if down the road I want to use something like Next-gen would having renamed the uploads folder be a real problem.

    thanks

    you can specify any folder in
    admin - settings - miscellaneous
    and don't click to organize them if you don't want

    I get that, yes, but if i changed the uploads to photos
    and left the organization of month / year on---
    wouldn't i then need to EVERY TIME i upload images have to go into
    admin - settings - miscellaneous
    and add the folder structure I wanted for that image?

    In a post today:
    If it was set to photos/month/year
    I would have to add /party/
    Ex: photos/02/2010/party/us.jpg

    In a post tomorrow:
    I would have to go to admin and add /homestead/
    Ex: photos/02/2010/homestead/garden.jpg

    Is this corrent? Or is that sort of file structure something that WP doesn't like?

    thank you
