We all upload images and files to our WordPress sites and attach them to specific posts. Replacing them can be a challenge though. You could always upload new files and link those to your posts. But Enable Media Replace saves you time replacing existing files. All you have to do is choose the file that you would like to replace in your media library and upload a new one.
Enable Media Replace is simple to use and does what it promises well. You can choose just to replace an existing file or use a new file name and update new links. A shortcode is available that you can use to display file modification in your pages and posts (file_modified). Just make sure you define the right ID and format for it.
Enable Media Replace is a time saver and saves you time managing your file attachments in WordPress.Â It is not always perfect but when it works, it is quite useful.
