I want to use an image on multipages and places throughout a space. The goal is that when we need to update the image it would automatically update the image on every page where it is inserted.
I have tried to use the insert image and the image URL but then when I reupload to replace the original image, it does not change the image on all the other pages.
Is there a way that I can accomplish this?
This is described here https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Displaying+Imagesbut note that upon adding an image to a page, there may be a delay from that point until the image is returned in search results. That delay may be due to a configuration problem, or perhaps it's "just the way it works" but be aware, either way.
I just tested this with Confluence 5.1 and it works as expected. A few things to check:
My best guess at this point as to why you aren't seeing this fixed is caching. Depending on the browser, a force-refresh of the referring page may be sufficient.
If you delete the source image completely, and the referring pages still show the image, there is something suspect there. Maybe even delete the source PAGE completely and see that the referring pages show a broken link.
I don't think the delay is normal, but rather a sign of something wrong. The only place I observe it is on a test set up, and it gets rebuilt from the production snapshots often, so I suspect it'll go away with the next rebuild. So, in terms of how long it should be, I don't know other than "zero" in a non-snarky sense. Check logs and work with the system to figure out the cause, is all I can suggest.
I think you could be right, Steve. I can now not see newly created pages when I search for them to try and insert a link. Thankfully they appear in the list Recently Viewed pages if I go and view them first so there is a workaround if not ideal. This has made me think that there is a problem with an index somewhere. I'll see how I go about doing that...
