I am new in WordPress and I came from Joomla.

I am having some problem to understand how can I (if I can do it...) organize the uploaded media into folders and subfolders using WordPress.

If I go in my backend administration panel I have the Media sub panel in which I can add a file (for example a jpg image). The problem is that all files are added in the same library.

I want to organize my library having subcategory\subfolder in which the uploaded files are stored.

For example I want have category image for: "Spring articles images" and "project management articles image", etc.

How can do it?

WordPress doesn't support this natively, but there are many different plugins out there that you can use for that purpose.

Here's a link to get you started in the right direction.

I think the best plug in to solve this problem is Media File Manager Advanced. I let you check the description of it at: http://wordpress.org/plugins/media-file-manager-advanced/
