Описание не верное, или не полное. Мне нужен плагин который дает доступ в каталог для медеотеки для загрузки по FTP. Этот плагин, цитата: "Может загружать медиафайл в указанную папку." Он НЕ может загружать. НЕТ. Может ТОЛЬКО перемещать. Для работы с FTP также не подходит.

This plugin is AWESOME for moving media to other folders. PLEASE keep supporting it! I accidentally deleted multiple media files from 2019/02, 2019/03, etc., but when I tried to re-upload them, they were automatically uploaded to uploads/2020/04. what makes this plugin awesome is that, after you re-upload your files, it lets you MOVES them back to any existing folder you choose. This is just one of the features of this wonderful plugin. Given that there are so many plugins out there that let you move files around, I'm surprised this isn't more popular since it functions so very much better than the GUI plugins. The only problems I've found are that 1) you MUST limit the number of displayed media to less than 50 files per page, otherwise my website gives a 414 error from the plugin trying to refresh too many (i.e. 999) images per pagination, and 2) SEARCH doesn't work in the Media Library. This plugin would be 5-star once these error are fixed and the documentation is provided to warn me about this.

If you want to select folder when uploading media, use this plugin! “Extend Media Upload” It is very comfortable because you do not have to organize folders after uploading. It is the best to use in combination with "Organize Media Library by Folders" of the folder arrangement plug-in. Easy to use. Comfortable. The plug-in author quickly answered the request and it is very kind! メディアをアップロード時に選択できるプラグインです。 アップロード後にフォルダ整理しなくてよいので、とても快適です。 フォルダ整理プラグインの「Organize Media Library by Folders」と組み合わせて使うと最高です。 便利で快適、プラグイン作者が要望にすばやく答えてくれ、とても親切です!
