WordPress Multisite removal of YYYY/MM to just use files directory per site

Trying to disable the year and the month directories from a wordpress mu install. The same thing that you would normally just check off the option in a standalone WordPress site under media settings.

Unfortunately that option doesn't exist in the WPMU admin/network admin anywhere to just check a box.

Anyone have any experience with this?

    Greetings docroot,

    Great question and Welcome to WPMU Dev!

    This is actually part of the WordPress core and I have no idea if it is even remotely possible to change this.

    By any chance have you submitted a ticket to WordPress asking about this very subject?

    It is indeed interesting to see what they come up with because the change will need to be not only made in the core but I believe with the htaccess file as well.

    However, I will ping the WPMU Dev lead developer in here to find out if I am missing something and offer us and advice/advise us to how this can possibly by done - if possible.

    This may take longer then a normal ticket but I intend to help get it sorted if at all possible.

    Cheers, Joe

    Greetings docroot,

    Just checking if this issue was eventually resolved in another thread? Or by yourself separately to us? Or by us over email with you? Or using our live support?

    If so, no need to reply, that's great news.

    If not, or you have any more questions related to this thread, please feel free to post them below including any new symptoms or errors and tick the 'Mark as Not Resolved (re-open)' box below the post area (or else we'll miss it!)

    Otherwise, happy days, glad you got it sorted :slight_smile:
