Wouldn’t it be nice if, when you uploaded a file, the duplicate filenames just get a counter added in front?
Some people add timestamps on their files, and add some type of date, but I always found that to be very cumbersome.
How about something like this?
some-file.jpg 1-some-file.jpg 2-some-file.jpg 3-some-file.jpg
Well, now you can! I have used this little script a couple times to remove any conflicting filenames when uploading files with the same name.
If you are OCD, and wanted to all files to start with a number, just remove the if statement for the
$client_name, only leaving the string concatenate line, and it will always add a the counter when the file is new.
So give it a shot, and if you modify it for some other framework, post the link in the comments.
