I just upgraded to 2.3.2 and then 2.3.3. With both versions I have this problem. I take a screen caputre with my mac and it’s saved as something like “Picture 1.png”. I write a blog post and use the image upload feature to upload that picture to put it in my post. It makes a thumbnail and everything just fine.
If I delete the Picture 1.png from my desktop and take another screen capture, the new image is also saved as “Picture 1.png”. If I want to use that in a new blog post, and I repeat the process, it uploads and OVERWRITES THE PREVIOUS IMAGE. Thus, my earlier blog post has its image overwritten with the new one.
This was not happening with the old version of WordPress I was using. I’ve searched high and low for solutions, and even tried to find a way to adjust this in the code, but I’ve had no luck.
Can any tell me (1) how to fix this, or (2) where I can go in the code to do something like append a timestamp to the file names to work around this?
