00603: Upload versioning is browser dependent
When I overwrite a picture file, the file is renamed like:
This is OK as long as I work with Internet Explorer in Windows 2000.
But Mozilla Firefox doesn't recognize the extension ".jpg,12345"
I have direct downloads enabled.
I would like the extension to remain ".jpg" and rename files like this:
- picture.jpg --> picture,12345.jpg
- picture,12345.jpg --> picture,56789.jpg
The motivation of the timestamp-extension file name is explained in the feature request 00386. The reason for not preserving the extension was that it was the simplest way of avoiding multiple time-stamps like this:
- picture,12345.jpg --> picture,12345,56789.jpg
(Normally, you would always overwrite the current version and not an old version. A file with a non-standard extension is refused because it's not in the permitted extension list.)
Just some background information. I'm glad you're interested in upload versioning, too - more users, more ideas :-)
