I am making a very simple WordPress website for a non-technical person. For the admin, I wrote a PHP code for a form which creates events based on the information provided. However, for the image upload, I am using a jQuery plugin called FileUploader. The plugin stores images into a local folder. I tried to change the media library folder from wp-content/uploads to that specific local folder for testing purposes. I can see that the images are being uploaded to the folder but not showing up in the media library. Is there a way I can accomplish that? Any help is appreciated.
