    Whenever i upload a picture, if i had uploaded a previous picture with the same file name, it will just use the older picture, even if i had already deleted it or renamed the picture name (the second blank)

    btw, i'm talking about this

    have you tried a full refresh after erasing an existing picture?
    by this i mean open the image in your browser and press CTRL+F5
    images are cached so you might see the old file instead of the new one

    edit: just tested it, and its indeed what i said.
    if you clear your cache you'll be getting the new image.

    well now that you've already bumped it i could swear that it's not a cache issue, i tried ctrl+f5 (refresh w/o cache) and it still happens, and when i try to upload an updated .rar on filetrip but didn't change the name then it just uploads the older version

    is it using my cache to upload the same thing again or what? i've just been putting the date on my uploads anymore because it seems to happen quite a lot
