Can't Upload Spreadsheets


I can't upload xls files. I see it is not a recognized file type.

Grumpy, just put it in a zip file, and upload it that way.

I could do that, or nathan could enable the xls file type and we could upload the spreadsheets. Let's face it when someone asks for a form, I am more than willing to help, but if I gotta go out of my way with those extra steps of zipping and then deleting after upload... Heck I am just lazy and click the back button on my browser instead of helping.

Sorry, it's just not supported in this software. Not sure why but I can't turn it on.

If needed you can email it to me and I can post a link to it. It's up to you.

Emailing it is no easier than zipping it myself.

Re: Can't Upload Spreadsheets


Nathan... got it working on my forum.
Goto attachments > Extensions and Sizes > Add new filetype.
xls
100000
leave the rest blank
then click on Yes for enabled, and new window, and no on thumbnail.
