OK, first off, this plugin takes it time running, but it is doing a lot of things in that time. This plugin actually moves the files, AND it makes the changes to the WordPress database so that any references to the file are also changed (<- IMPORTANT!). If you look at other plugins like this, they don't actually move the files, they just create a different way of indexing them.
I didn't have the option for organizing the uploads in to the Month-Year structure turned on, so after two or three years, my uploads folder was overflowing with too many files for most FTP programs to handle. This became a problem for our site. Needing to navigate those folders on the site with an FTP program, I needed something to fix the issue.
MEDIA FILE MANAGER was the answer. I have been able to create a new parent folder, then a number of child folders to organize the huge mess of files in the uploads folder. It takes a while to do it, but it is actually doing something with the files and fixing the database too.
EXACTLY what I needed.
I have been searching for such plugin all day today. I really have to vouch for this plugin, made my website a whole lot better! With all the custom upload folders, I love it.
I hope future support will be available?!
How add media selector to Aqua Page Builder (Availabels blocks)?
Saved me a ton of time from having to manually re-locate a lot of media files. Works great.
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!
Are the the same but one is advanced? If so, what is the difference?
I have not tested the plugin extensively but my first impression is very good.
This functionality should be provided standard in WordPress.
It works in WP 3.8.1, but I like to see it officially confirmed
organized a huge number of files into manageable folders
updated links, fabulous! saved hours.
way slow-but not enough to not use it. I was able to shift click to select 20 img. at a time and click the arrow to move them to a new folder, and it did not choke, just took forever. Also slow on 6 img. at a time.
How do I add new images to specific folders? Do I have to move them via Media File Manager after upload?
Does the media library list utilize thumbnails generated when uploading an image?
On my header images, I deleted thumbs. perhaps that's why i cant' see preview in Media library list?
