Allowed File Extensions

    I am just attempting to load a bunch of images into the site I am rebuilding since the disaster.

    I observed that all except 3 image files uploaded with no problem. When I looked further at the three files that would not upload I noted they all had UPPER case file extensions.

    When I changed one to lower case .jpg the image uploaded correctly.

    I added the .JPG file extension to the allowed file types but the original file was still rejected.

    Observations? Suggestions?

      You can edit the list of file extensions that you are allowed to upload in the Security settings PB page.

      If the case of the file extensions is really the cause, I would classify this as a bug. I urge you to file a bug report at https://github.com/dnnsoftware/Dnn.Platform/issues.

        Hi Joe,

        I did edit those allowed fle extension by adding JPG. It made no difference. Only changing the file extension to jpg did that.

        I will log the bug.
