You can't move only those folders.

You can move the plugins folder in the wp-config.php file:

Quoted text from WordPress Codex:

Set WP_PLUGIN_DIR to the full local path of this directory (no trailing slash), e.g.

define( 'WP_PLUGIN_DIR', dirname(__FILE__) . '/blog/wp-content/plugins' );

OR:

Set WP_PLUGIN_URL to the full URI of this directory (no trailing slash), e.g.

define( 'WP_PLUGIN_URL', 'http://example/blog/wp-content/plugins' );

Quoted text from WordPress Codex:

If you have compability issues with plugins Set PLUGINDIR to the full local path of this directory (no trailing slash), e.g.

define( 'PLUGINDIR', dirname(__FILE__) . '/blog/wp-content/plugins' );

NOTE: This stuff changes over time and this is an advanced setting. Read the entire linked page before editing and follow the examples set there. Not the one here which may eventually be out of date.


You can move the entire wp-content folder (plugins, themes, uploads, etc.).

Quoted text from WordPress Codex:

Set WP_CONTENT_DIR to the full local path of this directory (no trailing slash), e.g.

define( 'WP_CONTENT_DIR', dirname(__FILE__) . '/blog/wp-content' );

OR:

Set WP_CONTENT_URL to the full URI of this directory (no trailing slash), e.g.

define( 'WP_CONTENT_URL', 'http://example/blog/wp-content' );

NOTE: This stuff changes over time and this is an advanced setting. Read the entire linked page before editing and follow the examples set there. Not the one here which may eventually be out of date.


  • We can set the whole wp-content to be elsewhere too. – brasofilo Oct 25 '13 at 14:31
  • Thanks @brasofilo . I pasted wrong. Look past the first NOTE: block. – Charles Clarkson Oct 25 '13 at 14:32
  • Wouldn't it be advisable to also set FTP_CONTENT_DIR, FTP_PLUGIN_DIR accordingly (with respect to updates) ? – Frank Nocke Sep 6 '15 at 7:00
