Upload a new version of this file

3

Whenever I upload an *updated* version of an image via the "Upload a new version of this file" link (located on each image page), the new image dimensions reflect the change made but the image itself is incorrect and links to the old image. It is also mangled in the display... it appears to be attempting to use and link to the old image (which is often smaller and lower res) and ends up looking terrible.

I have followed naming conventions carefully and ensured the new file is named the same as the old file, which could be part of the issue. Can you please advise on the correct process for updating older or lower res images?

Much appreciated, thanks! :)

This is totally NOT on your side - the issue is in the wiki. For some reason the old versions (thumbnails) don't get replaced by the newer versions, which has never happened before.

I first noticed it when updating the maps for Heaven & Hades. The same issue has hit you now (as also Kimberly with her updated images).

We know about it - we just currently don't know how to fix it. But as this is an important feature we are working on it.

Thanks for you uploads, btw.

Thank you for confirming, phew! I was sure it must be something I was doing and thought I'd better get clarification before flagging an older file for deletion and replacing it with a newer one. :)

I will try to have a look at the Media Wiki dev pages... I have a Media Wiki install elsewhere with admin access, when I have time I may muck around with both to see if I can figure a way around it.

Yw, happy to pitch in :)
