Wrong default upload directory
|Reported by:||pavelevap||Owned by:||ryan|
After fresh install there is problem with default upload directory.
Settings - Miscellaneous - Store uploads in this folder - there is only wp-content fulfilled, but there should be wp-content/uploads to work properly. Also next to this field is message "Default is wp-content/uploads".
But when I upload any file, its URL path is set to http://test.cz/wp-content/uploads/something.doc. When I look to FTP account, file is only in wp-content directory. So when I upload picture, there is no thumbnail in Media Library visible because of this problem (thumbnail is not in wp-content/uploads directory).
This problem appears on several different installations of WordPress. Many users ask me for help with this problem, because they are not familiar with these settings (upload directory) to change... When I manually change wp-content to wp-content/uploads then everything works...
