How can I have my media files saved in different sub-folders of my choosing in WordPress?

It just only use one folder for all media which make it hard to manage them.

Just to be clear, I'd rather not have my media organised by date and I have that option turned off. What I'd like is to organise my media files by folders with names such as blogs & products.

  • Under Settings > Media, do you have Organize my uploads into month- and year-based folders selected? – Milo Jan 2 '16 at 20:26
  • What "different folders" do you want? As @Milo notes, the month/year folders are built in. If you want anything different you'll need to do it yourself. – s_ha_dum Jan 2 '16 at 20:42
  • I created new folders like blogs, products, ... but I cannot access their contents inside media library. – VSB Jan 2 '16 at 22:56
  • @Mil I want to made named categories. – VSB Jan 2 '16 at 22:57
  • Do you need folders or just categorisation for your media files? – Ján Bočínec Jan 2 '16 at 23:33
