Uploading Files

Default settings used during the media upload process when writing a post.

Organize my uploads into month- and year-based folders – Check this box if you wish to organize your uploads into folders based on the year and the month of the upload. As of 3.5, wp-content/uploads is the default path setting for the uploads folder. Assuming this is your path setting if you check this box, a file uploaded in June of 2010 would be placed into the wp-content/uploads/2010/06 folder. Note: At the time of the actual upload, WordPress will automatically create the folders, such as wp-content/uploads/2010 and wp-content/uploads/2010/06, as long as your wp-content folder is writeable.

Save Changes

Finally, click on the ‘Save Changes’ button to ensure any changes you have made to your media settings saves on your database. As a result, a confirmation text box will appear at the top of the page telling you your settings have been saved.
