Fort Hays State University > Updating Images & Documents
There are many times that an image or document needs to be updated with a more current version. Instead of removing the old and replacing it, there are a few options that make updating files much easier.
When changing an image, use the overwrite feature. The advantages of using overwrite are that you will not need to change the links anywhere on the site, as the name of the file, and ID will stay the same. However, the image library does not keep a history of previous versions like the DMS system does. So, if you overwrite an image, there is no way to get back the previous version.
Your image will now be changed everywhere that it was used throughout the website.
Documents are easy to update, but there are a few very important details that must be noted.
Your document will now be changed everywhere that it was used throughout the website.
