Native drag events allow you to move a bunch of files to a folder on the sidebar list or to the upper folder in the archive section. Moving files to folder & folder to folder in just a blade reduces the number of clicks to get your tasks done.
Do you want to create WordPress media library folders for all uploaded files?
Managing multiple websites means that you’ll be adding tons of media files such as images, videos, audio, documents, etc. into your site server day by day. As a result, your WordPress media library will become cluttered and it could be extremely hard for you to find the files you need. You wish you can organize all those files into folders for better management.
That’s because the WP admin dashboard by default doesn’t offer this functionality. Luckily, there’s a powerful plugin that can help!
FileBird media folder is basically a virtual category applied to media files in WordPress without affecting the permalinks of the files.
