filetype limitations in File Manager

Hello,

Running on 2.3.7.6 MSSQL, Related Sites Mode I have an editor (who is not a Site Editor) in a child site that I have limited permissions to specific pages on the site (in Page Settings).

With my Admin role, in the Site Settings for the Child site I set the following permissions for that Editor:

  • Roles that can browse and upload but only in a user specific folder
  • Roles that can delete files using the file browser in the editor

With these permissions, in the Editor role I can upload jpgs, pngs and pdf's but not .doc or .docx files. Within the File Manager for the site (the JQuery version) if I try uploading a .doc it just says "file uploading" for an eternity and never uploads.  When I use the file manager within the WYSIWYG editor and try to upload a .doc(x) file it says the file type is not supported.

Is there a setting for allowed file types in the web.config or somewhere else? If I increase the permissions for the Editor by selecting "Roles that can browse and upload files" then I can upload all of the above mentioned file extensions AND doc(x) files.

Thanks for any advice you have to offer!

~ Beth

Hi Beth,

Yes, look in Web.config and you should be able to find them, AllowedUploadFileExtensions and AllowedLessPriveledgedUserUploadFileExtensions are probably the ones you are looking for. The second one I believe is for users who can only upload to a user specific location whereas the first applies to general browse and upload roles.

And some features are limited also for specific things, you'll see some other settings there but it should be pretty obvious what they are for.

You can copy those into user.config so you won't lose customizations during upgrades.

Best,

Joe
