I notice there is no way of managing attachment extensions on the new platform. This needs to be added

If I'm not mistaken, all the mainstream ones are allowed. Are there certain extensions you want to disallow?

Hi Chris,

It's not a case of disallowing any, As a Keyboard player i would require these extensions
.mid
.reg
.sty
.vce
.gif
.tif
.mfd
.pad
.rgt
.tvn
.uvn


So as you can see the need to be able to add extensions is a must, as it is on the old forum software. That facility does not exist on the new forum software and will need adding.

Unable to on my forum as the attachments are disabled, as they are on all forums on the new platform apart from the support forum.

The same as we are all unable to test the logo upload, and avatar upload
Not quite sure how we are supposed to give feedback on these things if they are locked out to us or missing ?

What the name of your forum again? I was searching for it, but then I remembered that you had submitted a different forum.

Well yes i can see the attachment button now but the only attachments it will allow is .zip
Sure does nothing to gain any confidence in this new platform at all.

Also as i said in my opening thread above the "There is no way of managing attachment extensions." This is a basic function on most forum software yet it is missing or locked out on this new platform. !!!
