Relocate Upload lets you specify folders, and adds a menu to the Media Library (and Edit Media admin page) that lets you switch media items between these folders and WPs default upload location.
When creating new folders,
- Upload the whole ‘relocate-upload’ folder to the plugins directory.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
- Specify your folders in the settings page.
- Why? What’s the point of these other folders?
Most servers are set up so that assets can only be used when referred from your own site – to stop bandwidth leeching. However folders can be set aside that don’t obey this rule – e.g. for placing images on other sites, downloading mp3s from RSS feeds and so on.
