Topic: Uploading image with same file name as an existing photo fails

When I try to add a photo to an existing gallery through svManager where my new photo has the same filename as an existing image in the gallery, the new image is not uploaded.  This is fine, as I don't want the old photo to be overwritten, except that svManager gives me no indication that the new upload failed.  I land on the page svmanager/svmupload.php?uploaded=true after the upload and it looks like everything went fine, until I notice my new photo is nowhere to be found in the gallery!  Is there any way to get svManager to report an error back to the user in this situation or, even better, rename the file automatically so that it doesn't conflict with an existing file?

Re: Uploading image with same file name as an existing photo fails

I've just checked and it seems that svManager does overwrite the image file but does not re-create the thumbnail. The new thumbnail only appears when you rebuild the gallery.

This is obviously inconsistent behaviour. I'll see if it can be fixed in the next release.

Thanks for raising the issue.
