Uploading images to the WordPress uploads folder via FTP or the cPanel is different from uploading them through the WordPress dashboard. When you upload an image through the Media Library, for example, the image gets registered with WordPress. WordPress assigns some unique identification values to it.
Moving the WordPress uploads folder to another location or uploading images via FTP/cPanel do not automatically create thumbnails for the images or results in existing thumbnails not being displayed. This can be frustrating when you create new articles and there are no previews for the images listed in your Media Library. Fret not as there is a plugin for that!
Images that you upload to your WordPress website are stored in the wp-content/uploads folder by default. When you first install WordPress you have the choice whether to separate the images by months and years. It is an important decision to make at that time because it can affect how you want your image files organized. In some future time, for example, if you wanted to resize those images to reduce your website size or to optimize them to increase the loading speed of your webpages — and they are stored by year and month in different folders — you would have a difficult time opening and closing those folders to make the changes without the help of some sophisticated software.
Drupal is a very powerful, robust and secure Content Management System. It is among the three widely used CMS’s online. But the main thing that prevents a lot of website administrators from using it for their websites is the steep learning curve. Learning Drupal takes a lot of time and patience.

You have to install some modules in order to upload a large number of media files to a Drupal website.
Drupal is a very robust content management system. Part of its appeal to web developers is its profound extensibility.

This tutorial will walk you through installing the required modules for assigning full names of authors to contents.
WordPress is the leading Content Management System on the internet. Web designers like it because it is extremely customizable and the availability of documentation and tutorials online about WordPress functionalities seems endless.

Every time you upload an image to a WordPress-powered website, WordPress creates four copies of the same image by default. These copies are of different sizes: thumbnail, medium, medium_large and large. While these image sizes are useful in some ways, when they add up together they can bloat the size of your website. Here are two ways to stop WordPress from automatically generating those images.
If you have websites that use WordPress as a content management system, you can move contents between the websites. You might want to export articles or posts from one website and import them into another because the latter receives more traffic. You might want to copy your articles from a certain website that you manage and publish them on your personal website to enhance your portfolio. Whatever your reason is, you can easily do so by following the steps below.
Every time you upload an image to a WordPress-powered website, WordPress includes width and height attributes to the line of code that goes with the image when it is added to a post. While it is good as it directly tells browsers what width and height to give to the image when it is rendered, in this era of responsive designs it means the image dimensions are inflexible. The image will look the same regardless of the browser width of the device where it is displayed.
WordPress is the top Content Management System on the internet. In terms of market share, WordPress serves as the backbone of 60 percent of websites that use CMS. Because of this, WordPress is a prime target for hackers. One way of finding out the vulnerabilities of a website is through opening its source code. By default, WordPress displays its version number in the source code. A piece of code, however, can hide it. It may not stop relentless hackers from targeting your website, but you can at least stop them from knowing an important piece of information right away.
