I created a nice header for a client and wanted to upload it in WordPress for the client to see. But instead of a new header, I got the WordPress error” unable to create directory …” What happened? Just a couple of weeks ago, everything was working fine. Well, I did update WordPress to the newest version… You can see where I am going, right? The update changed the folder to where the pictures would upload. That is why I got the error. There is a simple fix for this error:
1. Go to settings in your WordPress dashboard.
2. In the settings, click on Media. Towards the bottom of the page you will see under the headline “Uploading Files”: Store uploads in this folder: [name of folder]
3. Click on the name of the folder and delete it.
4. Add the default folder: wp-content/uploads
5. Save the changes
That’s it! Just go ahead and upload your new header and have fun with it!
