Cute plugin - nonfunctional in the real world
By , for WP 4.1.1

Ok. I can create folders and move media hither and yon - but the folders offer no functionality unless you are wanting to select one image, or you want to select multiple images to move about on a page.

Can't delete images from this plugin. While I am able to delete empty folders (left over from testing other gallery plugins - [why are they still there?]), this plugin does not let you delete images from within those folders. You have to do that from the Media Library, which kind of makes this plugin useless if the point is to organize (reorganize) a lot of images. I suppose I could create a "trash" folder, move images to that and find a way to delete that through my web host control panel.

Media Library gallery creator does not work inside folders. If you want to create a gallery, you have to do it through the Media Library, you can't use this plugin. Again, the point of this plugin is to organize (reorganize) a lot of images? But then what? To create a gallery, you have to go through the whole Media Library selecting the images you want. If you've organized those images into a sub-folder, they're not available to select to create a gallery.

So - a nonfunctional plugin.

Seem to be able to create folders

But, when I create a folder then go to media to add the image, there are no folders. Although the image is in the folder I created!!

So the images still sit in Media to view but not within their folders to view. The reason I wanted this plugin or something similar was to move all images in image specific folders.

So when I came to add images from Media I wouldn't have to look at 1000's of images, I could go straight to the image folder with the image i needed.

Maybe it can and I have just misread the instructions. Anyway the search continues.

At least it didn't waste much time. Died right away with a JSON error due to over time on execution. Not recommended until extensive bug fixing and testing on 4.1.

Great Plugin!

Fantastic Plugin

Saved me a ton of time from having to manually re-locate a lot of media files. Works great.

Extremely Helpful
By , for WP 4.0

Many thanks for this very helpful plugin.

It would be really appreciated if we could upload directly to a specified custom folder straight from a post but, in lieu of that, I'll remain quite happy to take the extra step of uploading to the main media library then moving to the folder of my choice.

Great job. Thanks again!

I received moved my site to a new server, and forgot to uncheck the month/year folders before I imported all my content! I was so annoyed, as I much prefer having all my uploads in the one folder - makes finding them again much easier.

Thankfully, I found this plugin, and was able to move everything back into the uploads folder in a snap. Brilliant!

This really should be part of the WordPress core.

This is great for organizing and creating directory folders for your images. If you have a large site that is heavy on images this is the plugin you have been looking for!
