I just needed a seperate media folder, but all this plugin gave me was errors that I am using the same folder, as well as displaying loads unrelated folders from my file manager. Way too difficult to use, if it even works at all. Sorry!

Literally media are my research software for a whole week to find them. I have installed and tested dozens of plugins. I do not choose the most stable, the most beautiful. thank you very very very much. Simply great.

A very useful plugin! It fixes the awful organization of the standard media library by allowing you to create directories inside the "upload" directory and distribute the uploaded files among this directories. This code should be integrated into the WordPress core!

Great plugin that fills a need that should be native functionality in WordPress this plugin makes creating your own folders to store image files easy. Storing images in folders using the date is not useful for everyone, equally if you disable that your stuck with uploading all the images into a single folder which is crap especially if you have shit loads of images. Trawling through a morass of images is not efficient, but if you can create your own folders and separate the images it makes finding them later a lot easier. I have used this plugin from the first version and it does what is required and it is integrated properly into the way WordPress works so as someone else stated it does seem like it is native to WordPress and not a plugin.

Everything in this plugin was done in so WordPress - way, so it integrates in media library, after a while using it, you will forget it is a separate plugin. My only objection goes to some illogical way things work - when creating a new folder you must first enter a name of the folder and then press "save settings", which is not most logical option from UX/UI (button beside labeled "create folder") would be better, since creating folder is not a setting. Also, upload folder could be set through settings, but on the top admin bar, upload folder is not synchronised with this. If those things would be resolved, I would give it a five stars, for a free plugin it does the job very well!
