Multple Image Folders

Permalink
I have created a new theme and currently have one image folder. I am also uploading multiple images to the CMS by saving images inside the incoming folder within C5's files directory.

What I would like to do is store images into more than one folder e.g.

www.www.mywebsite.com/section-1/images-type-a...

www.www.mywebsite.com/section-1/images-type-b...

etc...

Not sure where images are being saved after uploading multiple images to the CMS. Would be great to be able to micro manage images into multiple folders on the CMS. Also, to be able to edit alt attributes rather than going into the HTML to manually edit. Just think of the Client.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi, I am new here, but when I am right, than you have to go to
File Manager - Access - File Storage
there you find Alternate Storage Directory
I think, this is what you need to do.

Thanks for your reply

Your feedback gave me some inspiration so I looked into sets in the File Manager. It looks like you can only organise your files into groups for search purposes. I looked at the alternative storage location under access, but I don't think this is what I am looking for.

I'm still trying to work out how to create sub directories for images that have been uploaded to C5

It would be very useful if images can be displayed with SEO friendly URLS similar to C5's Pretty URLS for site pages.

Hi,
think I understand now, what you want.
Try this:

1. Go to File Manager - Access - Alternate STorage Directory
a. at Location Name put any name you like
b. at Path you enter the sub directory (for example: /home/.../public_html/files_1)
c. save

2. Go back to File Manager - Search
a. choose a file or upload
b. click on the file - accesses & permissions - storage location
c. choose new storage location
d. save location


If you have access to php MyAdmin, there you find MySQL database table FileStorageLocation
there you can add new storage locations, change or delete

Hope, I could help you now
