joomla upload component

I use the media manager to upload the files in joomla 1.5 version. This component uplaods everything in the root directory of joomla media manager. Is there any way i can define the folder and upload it?

Media Manager allows to create directories but it does not allow to upload the directory.. by default it uploads to the root directory of media manager.

Hi logudotcom,

I found the solution for your needs... Media manager setting available in global configuration in admin. You will change folder path and file extension as your needs.

Refer the below image....It might be helpful for you..
