Avoiding duplicated uploaded images?

posts: 3660 United States

When you upload in image during an wiki edit, Tiki does not inform you if there is already an image of the same name — it simply overwrites the existing image. Is there any way to control this? I'd like to, at a minimum, give the user a warning that the image name already exists and force them to enter a new name.

No, not as far as i know.

We used some javascript to add a timestamp to each uploaded image, so you cant overwrite existing images.
Another approach could be the use of a wysiwyg editor like tinyMCE or FCKeditor.
Those editors have a bulid in file browser/uploader which shows you all existing images of a folder,
so you can choose your filename wisely :-)

Good idea. I've expanded upon your idea here. Now Tiki will actually inform users when they try to overwrite an existing image.

If interested in changing only labels, make your changes in your language file: ./lang/XX/language.php
