How do you change upload path /files? in Mu (6 posts)

    I modified wp-settings.php, includes/mu.php, wp-includes/wpmu-fuctions.php, .htaccess from /files to /resources renamed the blogs.dir/{blogid}/files directories to /resources.

    I also modified wp-admin -> blogs -> edit -> Upload Path and Fileupload Url

    Now WordPress Mu uploads to the new directory fine, but with one draw back.

    When a user uploads a photo and inserts media into post, it still spits out:

    How do I change the insert media output to:

    I've been skimming the source in files like media-upload.php, upload.php, media.php and post.php, can't figure it out. Am I overlooking something?

    Figured it out, here's for future reference.

    edit: wpmu-functions.php


    /* Misc functions */
    function fix_upload_details( $uploads ) {
    	$uploads['url'] = str_replace( UPLOADS, "files", $uploads['url'] );
    	$uploads['baseurl'] = str_replace( UPLOADS, "files", $uploads['baseurl'] );
    	return $uploads;

    rename "files" to the new directory.

    IS there anywhere where there is a tutorial to exactly get this done.

    I changed the Blog.fir to files and still can not find it in the right folder after uploading a file

    Or does anyone know of a good way to file uploads offsite to easily put in the write post pafe. I tried imagstack and it is not working either.

    You may be talking about uploading through Media option in Admin panel.
    If so then here is the simple solution.

    Go to Settings -> Miscellaneous
    there will be upload settings.

    Hi Realchaos1,
    I did not find out the function 'fix_upload_details' in wpmu-functions.php. My wp-mu version is 2.9.2 so it might be changed to another name. I tried to search the function name in all WP-MU'S folders but it isn't out there. Could you or someone else kindly help me to solve this problem?

    I want to change the config so uploads are NOT sorted into sub-folders based on the date. I want them ALL in the /uploads/ folder.

    Like @djSonline, I thought this would be easty, but using WordPress MU 2.9.2 (and on another test installation) I do not have a Settings -> Miscellaneous options page.
