Allowing additional file types in the File Manager

Apr 26, 2014 4:41 pm

While you can upload any type of file to the File Manager in the Green Interface, you can limit the file types allowed in the File Manager in Blue. These are determined in the File Manager's configuration settings in the Toolbar Module.

The file extensions allowed by default are common extensions like jpg, gif, doc, txt, pdf and zip. You may want to allow additional file types such as docx, pptx, or xlsx.

To allow additional file types:

  1. Go to the Toolbar Module, Modules tab in Green.
  2. Click Edit next to the File Manager Module.
  3. In the Uploadable Files field you will find a list of all the file extensions you're able to upload. To add an extension type, type it into the list separated by a comma.
  4. Click Apply or Save.
