Why is '/images' still 'images'?

Postby lijn » Wed Dec 17, 2008 9:47 pm

When I look at the new interface for pivotx, the configuration options, etc... I can't help but wondering why the "images" folder is still called "images".

First, by default, pivotx allows me to upload image/gif, image/jpeg, image/png, text/html, text/plain, text/xml, application/pdf, video/x-msvideo, application/x-shockwave-flash, video/x-msvideo, video/x-ms-wmv, video/mp4, video/mpeg, video/quicktime, application/octet-stream, application/x-zip-compressed, application/x-bittorrent, text/css, application/x-javascript filetypes, more than just images alone.

Second, in the admin ui, I can configure these file types under File Uploads (not Image Uploads), and managing the files option is called Manage Media.

Isn't it time to rename this default folder to "media" or something similar?

I'm not sure if we should change it by default, just yet.. But, you're right that it _has_ to be configurable.. Added to the tracker!
