Drupal Enterprise 7: Updating Media


In the University's standard Drupal 7 installation, you can easily replace files with newer versions. Any content that refers to the file will display the newer version.


To update media (images, documents, filetypes, etc.)

  1. Log in to your site
  2. Find the file
  3. Click Edit
  4. Just below the preview of the item, click the Choose File button in the Replace File field
  5. Navigate to the new file on your computer
  6. If you are replacing an image, consider updating the Alt Text field
  7. Click Save


Because of caching, the change may not be immediate on your content. If you're not seeing the updated media on the content after a while, contact your site administrator.
