The structure of folder management – ​​the three different types of folders:

  • The normal folder: A folder can contain all types of files and collections, but not galleries. If you want to create a subfolder, just select a folder from the list and click this button.
  • The collection: A collection cannot contain files. But you can create other collections and galleries there. The above gallery is just a gallery data folder, meaning they are not automatically on your frontend (your website). You can create visual gallery from this gallery data folder via visual editor in your page/post.
  • The gallery folder: A gallery data folder can only contain images. It's easier for you to differentiate where your visual galleries are. You can also order the images in a custom image order by drag and drop.

To organize your media library, the top toolbar offers you all possible functions. Drag and drop is the easiest way to move files. All your files will be moved quickly with one movement. Hold down an image, move it to a destination folder and release the mouse button. Drag and drop also works with touch devices. On iPad, you use your fingers to move files.

folder hierarchy
Create infinite folders with infinite subfolders. You can also create a collection-gallery relationship that will help you see where your image galleries are. Names of your created folders, collections and galleries can be changed instantly. Note that duplicate subfolder names are not allowed in a folder.

New uploaded files will be automatically uploaded to the currently selected folder – in grid and table mode. You will also find useful information about the current upload progress.

To move multiple files at once, switch to WordPress “bulk select” mode. Then select your desired images and files and move them using drag & drop. This also works in media library list mode: just mark the files you want to move (checkbox) and then drag once to move the checked files.

The file or image can also be in multiple folders, as you know it from your operating system (shortcut / alias). Just drag your files, hold any key on your keyboard and drop them in a specific folder where you want to create the file associations.

Please note:

  • The plugin is in German and also from a German developer (only the booking is in English)
  • All links to the photos and media remain intact. Nothing happens there. Do not worry.
  • Operation is very simple and intuitive. No settings are necessary!
