writer doesn't create unique file names for images when pasting info into a post from Word document any way to get it to do this? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I found out the hard way that copying and pasting from a word document with pictures isn't a good idea with writer. trouble is some of the articles I have to add to my blog have a lot of pictures and illustrations. if you've uploaded previous posts with this same method it overwrites the pictures that are already there with the same name.

    Is there a way to get writer to either generate unique names for the picture files it uploads or have it create a sub directory for that topic and place the images there?

    I ran into problems with uploading the images via ftp

    I'm running Joomla 1.5.10 with Movable Type API installed and activated, all other xml-rpc plugins deactivated.
