how update a existing pdf in media


Hey guys,

let say i have uploaded a pdf document in media section of EPiServer 8 and have used that file on 5 pages througout the pages in the tree..

If i want to update the pdf in media with a new document i cannot see a way to upload a new document. If i go to the media and right click on the file i don't see a way of uploading a new pdf. 

If i upload the new pdf to the media section, then i have to manually update all the pages to the new pdf and i don't want that.. Is there a solution i missed for this?

Hi, you can update the current file by uploading a new file with the same name. Otherwise you can implement this functionality I blogged about recently:

Best regards,

Hi erik,

I will ask the client if upload a new file with the same name is sufficient for them, otherwise i will use your method in your blog. 

Thanks for blogging about it.. Very handy
