Duplicate Image Uploads


  • I am using WLW with WP 2.9 to author and upload pages. Each time i publish the images are uploaded and given a different name (usually appending a new digit)? Any idea as to why this happens?

    What is the syntax of the src property for the img tag. Mine looks like this  src="$thefile[11].jpg"

  • Windows Live Writer chooses a file name for you and when the images are upload'd the filenames follow. You can fix this by loading a plug-in that allows you to name the image file before you post.

    Here's a link to the main gallery...


    you could try this one:

    it has a 'Paste as JPG' option and allows for the naming of the JPG when you paste it.

    If you're uploading the same image, Windows Live Writer should not be upload the file again; only if it's a NEW image [that's my experience].


    Hope this helps.
