Description

Hi

I always turn off the: "Organize my uploads into month- and year-based folders" inside the Media Settings section.

Can this instead be turned off by default?

Why?

Such options have defaults that work for the majority of users. Can you elaborate on why this particular default should be changed?

I heard back from multiple beginner WP beginner users (they install their own site) who find it a nuisance to later find out that they have multiple folders inside their uploads folder.

So on or off depends on various usage of this setting. But having a discussion around it would be good.

Many FTP servers have listing limitations,ex. 2000 files (1998 files + "." + "..")
If you turn off this optional by default your upload folder may become not completly visibile.
And this can be a bigger nuisance IMHO

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Ok. Gotcha.
Seems like a clear case of keeping it on.

One thing...
It would be nice with an archive of useful code snippets of features/enhancement that can not make it into Core for whatever reasons.
