I setup an Assets field called Images. My Default Upload Location is set as {parent.uri}/{slug}

My File System Path for that folder is img/

The directory structure that is generated is correct and in this format: img/artists/artist_name/category_name/project_name

But the images are being saved in the root img/ directory.

What am I missing?

    Assuming this field lives in a structured section, did you add it to the "My Default Upload Location" setting, which only applies to files drag-and-dropped onto the field? Or did you check the "Restrict uploads to a single folder" setting and add it to the "Upload Location" setting? The latter is the one you probably want to do.

1 Answer 1


I got the images to upload into correct folders by switching Image field to "Restrict uploads to a single folder" option. I also had to fix the File System Path in Settings>Assets>Asset Sources to the full file system path.
