Search by Directory

The newest WP Media Folder version allows you to filter through folders in a much more efficient manner thanks to improved search options. This feature in WP Media Folder allows you to specify whether to search in the current directory, or in all folders. This comes in useful, for example, if you’re only interested in media located in a specific folder, rather than in every directory.
If that’s not good enough news, enabling or disabling this feature is as easy as ticking a single checkbox! This may be done by navigating to the General tab in WP Media Folder’s settings page, and toggling the Media search checkbox to search through all media folders, which is disabled by default.



Folder Covers

Organizing your media into directories is great, but sometimes, a picture is worth a thousand words. That is why it’s now possible to set images as folder covers as from the latest version of WP Media Folder.



In order to give a folder a cover image, all that is required is to upload your image to that folder. Then, select the image of your choice, and tick the Folder cover option in the right pane. And just like that, your folders are now even more distinguishable!


File Renaming

The new updates to WP Media Folder don’t just stop there, but also offer a new tool for file organization. This time, it’s in the form of automatic pattern file renaming, allowing uploaded files to be renamed according to a rule you specify beforehand.



In order to enable this, head to the Settings page of WP Media Folder and open the Media rename tab. From there, simply tick the checkbox and input the file name pattern that you want new files to follow.



There are various tags that you may use in the pattern, including your website’s or directory’s names, and the date, among others. And for uniqueness, the # symbol may be used as an automatically-incrementing number.


Automatic Content Deletion

By default, when deleting folders, their content is not removed with them. However, if you want the media to be deleted alongside the folders, WP Media Folder’s latest update is just what you need, giving you more control over your files.

To allow media to be removed when their folder is removed, head to WP Media Folder’s Settings and choose the Remove folder tab. If you tick the Remove a folder with its media, which is disabled by default, images and other content will be automatically deleted when their directory is removed.
