Hi, is there an easy way to make more folders for media content like "/files"? One of my sites have some galleries, and their amount is growing up. I would like to have a separate folder for them.

@pincher2012 I just create subfolders inside of /files/ for whatever I need. For galleries, I usually do /files/galleries/gallery-name. The easiest would just be one more level under that.

The problem is that a very large number of subfolders, and it is difficult to search for desired subfolder.

Another option would be to make a new app and duplicate the filemanager/gallery handler into it, then change it to use a separate root folder. The gallery feature is very basic and meant more as a starting point than a complete gallery solution. You can add a conf/embed.php to your new app to make your custom handler embeddable through the Dynamic Objects menu via: https://www.elefantcms.com/docs/2.0/developers/making-your-own-apps
