File extensions

Recommended Posts

Hi

is there a way to avoid file extensions check?
I would like to upload any kind of files.

What's your use-case? From a security point of view it's not a good idea to allow everything. Surely you have an idea what kind of file-types will be used?

I found another forum thread where basically the same question was asked, and the gist of it was: No, you can't. Leaving the allowed extension config list empty makes it unusable, and just entering a wildcard * won't work either. @ryan takes security matters very seriously, and personally, I wouldn't want to have such a "everything goes" option built-in the core, too.

If you have to, for some reason, import data from another system, and create / populate fields via API (batch actions), you can temporarily allow each file extension that comes your way, and then switch back to a "normal" default set after save. But I guess you were asking about using the GUI options.
