We need to smush the images in the folder 'uploads/2016'.


We need to smush the images in the folder 'uploads/2016'.
But, as you can see in my capture the folder is not shown in the "DIRECTORY SMUSH" area.

What am I missing here?

    Hello there Walter,

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

    The "uploads/2016/" folder is a default Media Library folder, so it should be included by default when you check for unsmushed images.

    So in order to smush images stored in "uploads/2016/" folder, simply click on the check files and then bulk smush (prior to that, inspect, set and save Smush settings).

    "Directory Smush" option is for any other folder, outside the ones used for Media Library, like theme and plugin folders.
    Here's our announcement blog post about "Directory Smush":
