#7305 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

Image uploader expects the upload path to be "wp-content/uploads"

I have changed the default upload path "wp-content/uploads" to something else from the WordPress settings.
Now when I upload an image, it is uploaded to the correct directory BUT the HTML IMG tag's SRC attribute is still showing the default "wp-content/uploads" path (and obviously the image is not displayed). The value is probably hard-coded somewhere.

I think this is happening because the "upload_url_path" option has no value in my database and the wp_upload_dir function in wp-includes/functions.php is setting it to the default value:

if ( !$url = get_option( 'upload_url_path' ) )
	$url = WP_CONTENT_URL . '/uploads';

I am not sure where the "upload_url_path" option needs to be set though. Probably when saving the settings.

I filled the "Full URL path to files (optional)" field in Settings > Misc and I think it is working now.

Shouldn't that field be optional? :P

Its only optional if you leave the upload path as default.. :P

No, it's not an invalid ticked.

The screen says OPTIONAL, and optional means optional in all cases.
Was optional and worked in all versions but 2.6

If it's no optional anymore, should change the field label, and be filled when updating.
