Replacing images and files in the CMS

Before we begin

Make sure that your SilverStripe CMS installation has the Versioned Files module installed.


When you view a file in the Files & Images section of the CMS, you will notice that two tabs have been added - "History" and "Replace".

Editing a file

You can replace the file with an upload from your computer in the replace tab. The replacement file must have the same file extension as the original.

Replace a file

The History tab contains a listing of all versions of the file, complete with links. Once you have created more than one version of a file, you have the option to rollback to a specific version in the Replace tab.
