For future WordPress versions, I’d like to suggest that there’s a folder/directory called “wp-general” where the root files will be stored.
The reason for this is, when working in an FTP, it’s annoying to have all those files (that hardly anyone ever touches) just laying around taking up space. With a “wp-general” folder, it will create better organization and users will only see 4 main folders/directories: “wp-content”, “wp-admin”, “wp-includes”, and “wp-general”.
This is a pretty small, but very necessary request. I know with some modifying of some core files and reworking of some permalinks, you can do this manually, but that’s a pain. I’d like to be already done every time I download and install a fresh new copy of WordPress.
This feature would benefit many WordPress developers, and anyone who uses WordPress, for that matter. I’d like to hear what you think. Is this worth bringing up directly to Automattic? Do you have any suggestions or other ideas to improve on mine? Let me know in the comments.
