Allowing other file types in Photo GalleryFebruary 15, 2011 @ 10:33am
Hello,

Is there a way to modify the types of files accepted in the Photo Gallery? I want a way to transfer and store files. .zip, pdf's, xls, etc...

Thanks,

David

Hi David,

No, I can't see any way that could happen through the Photo Gallery. It needs to generate a thumbnail and detect the dimensions of the image, so we just use the file types supported by the GD library. Even without that, there's no download process to get the file to the user.

If you're just storing the files for your own use, the File Manager should work just fine. Depending on the permissions granted it can upload anywhere from images to unlimited file types. You could then also link to those files in a page if you wanted to offer them to visitors of your site. And finally we also have a digital goods enhancement for the eCommerce module coming soon (available in beta now if you wish to try it), which allows you to sell any type of file and deliver it securely for a set period of time.

Send $50,000 in unmarked, non-sequential bills. Or drop me an email at . Either works.

Recently, or back in mid February? I think I replied and sent you the files. In any case, if you didn't receive them, or I've lost my mind and didn't send them to you, feel free to send again and I'll be sure to take care of it.
