Organizing Media with Folders
Organizing your media library with Wicked Folders is a breeze. To get started, simply go to the Media page in your WordPress admin site. From here you’ll be able to create new folders, move media library items into folders, organize your folders and browse media items by folder.
Adding a New Folder
To add a new folder, click the “Add New Folder” icon (the “plus” icon) in the Folder Pane on the left-hand side of the screen. Give the folder a name and optionally select a parent folder that you’d like to place it in. Don’t worry, you can always change the folder’s parent later by dragging it into a different folder.
Adding Media Library Items to Folders
To move an item into a folder, simply hover your mouse over the item’s name, place your mouse cursor over the move icon, then click and drag the item to the desired folder. An outline will display around the folder’s name when you drag an item over it to make it obvious which folder you are moving the item to.
Organizing Your Media Library’s Folders
To reorganize folders, go to the Media page and simply drag and drop folders like you would on a computer. To rename or delete a folder, click on the folder and click the “Edit Folder” icon (the “pencil” icon) or “Delete Folder” icon (the “trash can” icon) in the Folder Pane on the left.
Browsing Media Items by Folder
You can easily browse media by folder when adding media to your posts or pages. Simply use the folder tree navigation on the left.
You can also filter media by folder when browsing the media library. To do this, simply select the folder you want to filter by from the folders dropdown at the top of the page.
Adding Items to Multiple Folders
To add an item to multiple folders, edit the item and select the desired folders in the “Media Folders” box in the right sidebar. Note, if you don’t see the “Media Folders” box, click the “Edit more details” link.
