Troubleshooting: Links to Uploaded Files
Links to uploaded files do not seem to point to the correct version on a blog.

You may try to replace an uploaded document or file with a new version, but the link keeps pointing to the old one.
Because of the way files are stored in the cloud service, CampusPress gives each upload a unique name by appending characters to the end of the filename. This means that the URL to a file only applies to that particular upload, and if you upload a new version, it will get its own unique URL, even if you delete the old one.
If you use this approach, if you choose, you could also store the file in Cornell Box, and use the versioning and link options of that service to make sure the link to the file always goes to the current version. (See Box for more information.)
Or, if the content of the file is something that can be put on a web page, you could create a page in your blog containing that content, and provide people with the link to that page.
