Over-writing Media Easily?

  1. Alright, new here. Searched the forums and support thoroughly and didn't see anything like what I'm looking for.

    I have a couple of PDF files that are permanently linked from a page. Is there an easy way to over-write the existing files when I upload the updated version? As of right now I have to upload the new ones, delete the old ones, and then fix three links every time I want to update these things.

  2. You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you'll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It'll help people to answer your question.

    This is an automated message.

  3. No because the uploaded files have a url with the date in so you could only replace immediately. So you do need to re-upload, sorry.

  4. There are a couple of work arounds that might make things easier but we need the blog URL you are referring to beginning with http to know if they are the correct ones for you.
