on my current page I want my uploads to be saved directly in the uploaded folder. So their links should be something like https://example.com/wp-content/uploads/myimage.jpg instead of https://example.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2018/09/myimage.jpg.

I remember reading somewhere, that this can be set under Settings->Media. However, the option doesn't appear there on my installation.

I should probably mention that this is a multisite installation. So maybe the named option can be found somewhere else there. But I couldn't find it yet. Do you know where to find this setting or how to change this?

Now here is how you can disable it in WordPress Multi-sites:

  • Login to Dashboard
  • Go to Network Admin
  • Go to Sites tab
  • Click on Edit link for particular site.
  • Toggle to 4 tab under it – Settings
  • Look for "Uploads Use Yearmonth Folders"
  • Change the value in text field from 1 to 0
  • Save the settings.
  • Thank you, that is actually exactly what I was looking for! Commented Oct 3, 2018 at 13:29
