I've searched and can't seem to find much information on this, unless I'm just tired and overlooking it (in which case I apologize).
I wanted to create my own media folder to upload pics into (so the URL would be shorter -- blogs/pics/ instead of blogs/media/blogs/) except that the image links didn't work and gave me broken photos (i.e. the infamous red X).
Not sure why that wouldn't work, I did upload the pictures via FTP to the blogs/media/blogs folder and changed all the permissions to 777 (as read elsewhere). However, when trying to access the uploaded media via the backend file management tab, it says that no files are found. Why aren't they there? They are obviously uploaded and [url=http://www.hudson2001.com/blogs/index.php?blog=6]on the site/blog[/url]... or does this media section work differently than I'm thinking it does? When I try uploading directly into the media section, I get this error:
An unknown error occurred when moving the uploaded file on the server.
I have file upload size set to 300kb, even though the pic I'm trying to upload is only 28k.
And lastly, why doesn't simple code like border="1" work to put a border on the photo??
