I am building a site with D8, where I have a content type 'user' where among other fields, I have two 'file' fields where users will be uploading their CVs (one for english, one for greek language).
I have successfully used File (Field) Paths to give desired, certain filenames to each file, say 'username_EN.XXX and username_GR.XXX' .. This works ok.
My problem is that users will obviously be renewing their CVs, and whenever a new file is uploaded, its filename is automatically incremented to 'username_EN_0', 'username_EN_1' etc.
I need to have new files overwriting old ones and keeping the same filename.
I have researched a lot for this functionality, and it seems it's not yet standard for D8.
This issue presents a summary of this problem, and there are various patches and solutions offered, but it's ambiguous whether they do work, and/or whether they apply to specific scenarios. The issue is still open, and unassigned.
The module itself, has a very similar issue thread, with some solutions offered, but only for the 7.x branch. There is nothing similar for the 8.x version, and obviously no such functionality.
I believe that this functionality must have been needed before, I thought there would be a simple way of solving this. Am I missing something?
Any help would be greatly appreciated ..
