Using the WordPress Media Replace Plugin

If you use the media upload system in WordPress to upload documents there may come a time when you want to update the document.

There is no built-in functionality within WordPress to allow this without changing the link. And the link to your document may now be referenced in many other places. This plugin solves this problem quite nicely.

It’s use is pretty easy… The example below shows the replacement of an image but this works just as well with PDF/ZIP documents etc. If you need help installing plugins – please contact us.
  • Select The Media Manager from the Sidebar

  • Select the Media you would like to replace

  • Click Upload New File

  • Choose to ‘replace’ the file and Upload
