How to uncheck “Add as a new version to existing files” inside the “Add a document” dialog RRS feed

  • Question

    • I am working on a publishing site collection using the enterprise wiki template. Currently when users want to insert an image inside the rich text editor,

    • And if the user insert a picture that already exists then it will replace the existing one, which might cause the picture to be displayed inside a Wiki page which it does not belong to !!

  • Hi,

    You can add the following code in your master page of this publishing site collection, the “Add as a new version to existing files” would be unchecked automatically.

    <script type="text/javascript">
    function DefaultUploadOverwriteOff() {
      if (document.title= "Upload a document" ) {
        var input=document.querySelectorAll("input");
        for (var i=input.length; i--;) {
          if (input[i]\_OverwriteSingle$|\_OverwriteMultiple$/) > -1) input[i].checked=false
