Hi

a member is requesting that I allow photos from Iphone to be uploaded to the forum as attatchment.

At the moment I have this setting
.gif,.GIF,.jpg,.JPG,.txt,.pdf,.PDF
Can I add format to this line in order to be able to upload Iphone/Ipad photos?

Thanks
Morgan

Well, if you're on a dedicated machine you'll want to make sure any malware scanner or virus definitions on the machine are up to date regularly which should scan all of your attachments (including any archive extensions which are not password protected).

Its up to you to set whatever file limitations you'd like; I offer programs and often have software creators on one of my forums which use archives to include program files or multiple files so we allow .gz/.rar/.tgz/.zip which are common web archive formats.

If you don't see the need to support .pdfs, don't support it.

As for .png and .jpg/,jpeg; you asked which formats apple devices produce by default, those are .jpeg (images) and .png (screen shots).

I see you're missing .png and .jpeg from your list; its not case sensitive, so all you need is:
.gif,.jpg,.jpeg,.png

Then whatever file attachment extensions you want to support such as:
.css,.txt,.pdf,.gz,.rar,.tar,.tgz,.zip

UBBDev uses:
.gif,.jpg,.jpeg,.png,.css,.txt,.pdf,.gz,.rar,.tar,.tgz,.zip
