I have a user that has create permissions for certain folders in the media library, but when I log in as that user and right-click on the folder, all I see is the create folder option. If I click on the folder, I see the option to upload files and I can do so from that button in the right column. Why can't I see this as an option when I right-click and how would I go about getting that option available to the user?
Upload options are there only for the template:
The options can be found under
If you can see upload option as administrator and another user cannot see those options, there must be something with the access rights which does not allow that user to upload files.
