pdf files will not upload

Post by kawvoy » Sun Feb 08, 2009 9:07 pm

Hello again, guess I had to re-register since the regular boards are down.

Anyway, I have recently enabled file downloads on one of my forums for specific member group to use. I tried a test upload of a .pdf file and got the error message that it could not upload pdf files. Is this by design, or do I need to do a setting, mod, or something to get this to work. If it was by design, what files are allowed to be uploaded, and why are pdf's prohibbited? As always, thanks to a great bunch of people that made this software and support available!

You need to allow the "Documents" extension group. This can be found on the Posting tab of the Administration Panel.

Thanks Noxwizard! That done it. Also found out a bunch more control that the admin can use with the message forum. Thanks again to all that worked and continue to work on this software, it really is something else! :D :D
