FAQ Answer


Using Manage Files in Content Area

Is there an easy way to delete an attachment from a topic? Seems I can only do this by deleting (trash) the entire topic and then making a new topic without the attachment?


If you created a Topic in the Content area with a file upload (not a link to a URL), you can use Manage Files in the Content Area to upload a newer version of the file. You will need to keep the same exact file name to do this.  

  1. Click on Content
  2. Click on Manage Files
  3. Click on Upload File
  4. Click on Choose File & locate your file
  5. Click Upload
  6. If you selected a file with the same name, you should see a confirmation to replace the file.
  7. Check the box in front of the file name, and click on Overwrite Selected.
