Uploads folder by date - pros and cons

On a multisite network, is it possible to store all images for a subsite into a single folder rather than have them separated into folders by date? If so, what are the pro and cons of this?

    Hey there Burlington Avenue,

    hope you're doing good and thanks for reaching us! :slight_smile:

    In order to have all images of a subsite in a single folder, you should edit the site from
    Network admin -> Sites -> edit subsite and set the "Uploads Use Yearmonth Folders" from "1" to "0".

    The pros and cons of this move, is actually a personal matter, as it's all about organizing and sorting/searching your images. If more assets are going to be uploaded regularly, then the yearmonth structure may be handy. Even though if you use a relatively small set of images, then a single uploads folder should be enough.

    Warm regards,
    Dimitris
