I imagine that this would be a breeze for some – but I’m having difficulty getting just the upload’s directory name – not the full path – I’ve gotten this far:
$uploads = wp_upload_dir(); $upload_path = $uploads['baseurl']; // now how to get just the directory name?
anyone have any ideas?
thanks for sharing your experience. . .
This is what you get back from the function:
Array ( [path] => C:\development\xampp\htdocs\example.com/content/uploads/2012/04 [url] => http://example.com/content/uploads/2012/04 [subdir] => /2012/04 [basedir] => C:\~\example.com/content/uploads [baseurl] => http://example.com/content/uploads [error] => )
So you can get the (as @OneTrickPony pointed out), folder/directory name with
echo wp_basename( $uploads['baseurl'] );
If you’re running multisite and you defined the constant
UPLOADS, then you access it from
For multisites, you would get something like this:
Array ( [path] => /var/www/example.com/public_html/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2016/12, [url] => http://example.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2016/12, [subdir] => /2016/12, [basedir] => /var/www/example.com/public_html/wp-content/uploads/sites/2, [baseurl] => http://example.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2, [error] => , )
Where the “2” after
sites is the blog’s ID
