    I want to build a picture and video portfolio Site with WordPress and enfold.

    I want to organize about 30.000-50.000 pictures in Sets of 20-200 pictures.

    If I add a page with a Gallery WordPress asks me to save the files in the media library where they are all in one big place. I read that I can organize the images in folder by date. But I am looking for a possibility to organize my pictures in Folders with speaking names.

    How can/ should I do this so that enfold has no problems?

    2. Same goes for videos. I have lots of videos with File sizes in the range of 100MB to 1.2 GB. How do I organize them properly? The media library has a mx file size of 32MB. I am sure I can change this (where?).

    3. The images are stored regularly on the harddisk not in a database I hope?, Why then WordPress needs so long to import the files (I am on my local machine with a MAMP install)




    I have a similar need. I have looked at several plugins but have not found anything. The closest is NextGen Gallery but will not integrate with the theme (or I have not figured out how). Let me know if you find a solution.



    question #1: this plugin did the trick for me


    OK, Here is what I tried.

    First: Enable DEBUG mode ( (Purchase code hidden if logged out) )

    Install NextGen Gallery (

    Nextgen allows for folders in the media uploads.

    Insert a text block in ALB (Avia Layout Builder)

    Add media – Select NextGen Gallery and add your media by inserting into post and Save

    Now you can copy the scr path of the image from the debug window.

    Insert an image block.

    Now you can copy the original source path into the image block path.

    This is a lot of work for bunch of images but you at least can manage all your media assets.

    Let me know if this is helpful! (I can do some screenshots)

    Kriesi, Bitte mach das das wir die NextGen Gallery verwenden koennen.




    1) I tagged this thread for Kriesi (feature request).

    2) If you want upload bigger files you probably need to change the post_max_size & the upload_max_filesize values in the php.ini. If you can’t edit the php.ini (because you don’t have access to the file, etc.) try to contact your hoster.
