Updating a File in the Filestore

You can update a file you have already published, but need to change to an updated version. As long as you are updating the same piece of content in the Filestore, the published link to this file will also be updated.  A good example is if you have included a link to a file from an Ezine, but you made subsequent changes to the document and need the link in the Ezine to point to the updated file.

You will need the updated file on your computer, ready to upload to the CMS.  Make sure your file meets the required Accessibility guidelines.

Files must follow the correct filename convention. Documents (e.g., PDFs, Word documents, Excel documents, etc.) must follow the naming convention as follows:

    • Use only lowercase letters (a to z), numerals (0-9) and hyphens (-).
    • Do not use spaces. Instead, use hyphens to separate words.
    • Do not use special characters (e.g., £, %, &, á) or underscores.
