Media Settings in WordPress1:16 with Zac Gordon
In this video we go over the settings found under Settings > Media in the WordPress Admin area.
Under the media section, we have the option to determine what the default sizes
are that WordPress will automatically generate for each image that you upload.
You could control these here and
you might need to if your theme needs certain medium or large sized images.
You could also determine how the thumbnails are created and
if they're cropped to the exact widths or
just proportionally to meet a certain height or width.
We also have the option to disable the month and year based folder system
that WordPress creates in the WP content folder on the backend of the site.
You would not see this unless you have access to the files
behind the scenes on your WordPress server or local server.
It's important to note that if you've already uploaded images to WordPress and
you change these settings, they will only apply to newly uploaded images.
There are some plugins however, like Regenerate Thumbnails though
that you could run after you've changed those settings, and
it'll automatically regenerate the correct size thumbnail or smaller images.
Let's go ahead now and
take a look in the next video at the very last settings section Permalinks.
