Overwrite existing graphics with new
I’m quite new to WP, but do know my way around Joomla, so forgive me if this is a really dumb question!
I’m currently doing some amends to a WP (3.5) site, and I need to replace all the existing graphics on the site with new ones (same sizes, same graphics, same format, same names – just optimized to reduce file size).
Unfortunately, it seems that everytime I upload a new graphic via the Media manager, WP ‘creates’ a path name itself, for example:
When I upload the new graphic, obviously, this goes into a different path name, therefore it doesn’t actually replace the existing one (and therefore there is no change to the page).
Is there any method of replacing the existing graphics with the new ones (without having to edit every single page)?
I don’t have FTP access, which I assume would be the easiest method?
Many thanks in advance.
