Change File-Button in Publisher Library


if you want to change a file in the Publisher Library (e.g. add some information to a given PDF), you need to delete the old file and upload a new file. This new file has a different ID and thus the new version has a different URL than the old version.

If you already used the URL, e.g. on the website or in emails, you need the change the html-Code or you need to inform people about the new link.

It would be great to have a “Change File”-Button in the Publisher Library like there is one for galley files .


Hi @carola,

Thanks for your suggestion! Other users have requested this as well, so I filed an issue for it in PKP’s Github repository, where we manage and track our software development: Replace files in Publisher Library · Issue #5780 · pkp/pkp-lib · GitHub.

Please feel free to monitor progress of the issue and add a comment if you want to add anything. You just need to create a free Github account in order to comment on issues or create new issues.

Kind Regards,
Public Knowledge Project Team

OJS version seems to have the feature to make file changes.

Thank you @kerimsarigul!
