Plugin Directory

Overwrite Uploads

Overwrites files that already exist when uploading, instead of storing multiple copies with unique filenames.

Why do I see multiple copies of the file in the Media Library

WordPress allows files to have the same name if they're not in the same directory. So, wp-content/uploads/2013/11/pizza.jpg can live alongside wp-content/uploads/2013/12/pizza.jpg. This plugin only deletes existing files if they are in the same folder that the new file will be placed in.

Can I make a donation to support the plugin?

I do this as a way to give back to the WordPress community, so I don't want to take any donations, but if you'd like to give something I'd encourage you to make a microloan with Kiva.

Do you support this plugin?

I'm happy to fix reproducable bugs, but I don't have time to help you customize the plugin to fit your specific needs.
