Is there a way to create a folder structure for uploaded images in the e-mail builder?

Your software
My Mautic version is: 4.4.10
My PHP version is: 8.0.30
My Database type and version is: 10.6

Is there a way to create a folder structure for uploaded images in the e-mail builder?
I would like to sort the pictures into a folder structure so that they can be found more easily later. Is there any way to do it?

Hi @stefan-franz,

I’ve also tried to find a solution to this issue because the library can become messy over time. Unfortunately, I haven’t come across a solution as well. :frowning_with_open_mouth:

Best regards,

Hi @stefan-franz,
the closest to a folder structure we currently have is the “elfinder”, Mautics media manager. You can open it by adding “/elfinder” to the URL of your Mautic instance, for Example

There you can create folders, structure your uploads and delete older images.

But, as far as I know, having a structure made in the elfinder, has no impact on the image-block in the email-builder. The image selector still seems a bit messy.


Can’t access to it.

Hi @stefan-franz,
is there a corresponding log-entry?

First very wild guess would be to check wether you have CORS-Settings activated. “Settings” → “System Settings” → “CORS” and disable if not already disabled.


Cors disable has no effect.
But no problem: I’ll wait until we have a stable V5.
Thanks, Stefan

Hi @stefan-franz,
just because Im very curious. Do you have commandline-access and can fire the "php bin/console elfinder:install" Command and check again if you can access the ElFinder?


you can add this to the end of you local.php file:

if (!defined('ELFINDER_IMAGEMAGICK_PS')) {
    define('ELFINDER_IMAGEMAGICK_PS', '/usr/bin/convert');

then you can access your ELFINDER again

Hmmm…don’t know if you did understood me right…and how about 5.0.4 - let me ask again (i’m a newbie, so please explain it for dummies :wink:

Now i use Mautic 5.0.4 - and it looks the same as in 4.4.10

My question: I’d like to have the possibility for subdirectorys like on a normal laptop - here e.g. subdirectory “persons” “products” “business” and so on.

  1. Is that possible
  2. if yes, how can i do it? What is elfinder?

What file (in which directory) do you mean?
Does it work with 5.0.4?
