WordPress is the most popular and widely used content management system. It has a lot of great options and features when it comes to creating a website as well as content. There are also numerous plugins, extensions, and add-ons that you can use, download and add to your site to improve its stats, look, and feel, as well as optimize it for better user experience. Overall, it is a very versatile and well-designed system, hence why it is so popular.
The WordPress media library with folders
When it comes to creating content, uploading and adding attachments, images, and media, in general, it is quite easy to do in WordPress. Everything is automatically added and saved in the WordPress media library and you can use those files later since they will be saved there at all times unless you delete them manually.
Having this default media library option is great, but only if you use the files you uploaded right away. If you have ever searched for some older files, you could see it is not that easy to find them, especially if you have lots of different ones. Luckily, there are some WordPress media folder plugins that will help you organize your files the way you want to.
The plugin that we will focus on in this article is the WP Media Folder plugin developed by JoomUnited. JoomUnited is a popular plugin hub for websites that are both on WordPress and Joomla.
WP Media Folder is a media management plugin that allows users to manage files and images directly from their usual WordPress media manager dashboard for better user experience.
This plugin is great as it enables you to create your media files inside the main media library in WordPress. You can just drag and drop images between folders (exactly like you do it on your desktop). So it’s is really simple and you are already used to that motion meaning you will have no issue getting to know how to use this plugin.
Once you create an account and log in, you will see a pretty normal-looking dashboard. You will also see some at-a-glance statistics about your site and if there are some critical issues that need to be fixed.
This plugin is great for both beginners (it is easy to use and intuitive) and more advanced users as it comes with more advanced features and options (we will mention them later in the review).
You get a lot of great features that include being able to use and create an unlimited number of folders, advanced searches, and filters when searching for a file, syncing all files from a folder, integrating the plugin with Google Drive, One Drive, Dropbox, and Amazon S3 (which comes with a plugin add-on), and automatic watermarks to protect your images.
The folders are by default virtual and based on WordPress taxonomies so if you move files between folders, they will not change their URL. And you can also sync folders between your media library and the server.
Throughout this article, we will review all the options and features you get with this plugin and show you how it works, with screenshots, to give
