image version issue

  1. I post my art to my site. Sometimes I want to replace a posted image with a more recent version (my art is often work in progress). The problem is that even when I delete the old image from the original post and from the media library, then upload the new image (named the same as the old) WP actually pulls the old image back into my post and replaces the new upload with the old one on publish. This is a quirk that existed before the dashboard upgrade, and is not a problem so long as I settle for appended numbers in my filenames, but it would be nice to just overwrite old files with identical filenames.

  2. You need to change the names. That has been the case for the more than two years I've been here, and I would imagine it will continue to be the case for the foreseeable future.
