The filetype you are attempting to upload is not allowed.
  • Hi,

    Since I updated my Fuel-CMS to 1.4 I get this error when I try to upload an asset.
    Can you please point me in the right direction to fix this problem.

  • What's the file type you are trying to upload and is it and is that file type in the "editable_asset_filetypes" "assets" key parameter in MY_fuel.php? The default value (which is found in the fuel/modules/fuel/config/fuel.php file and overwritten by the contents in MY_fuel.php) is the following:

    $config['editable_asset_filetypes'] = array(
    'images' => 'jpg|jpeg|jpe|gif|png|zip|svg',
    'pdf' => 'pdf|zip',
    'media' => 'mov|mp3|aiff|mpeg|zip',
    'assets' => 'jpg|jpeg|jpe|png|gif|mov|mpeg|mp3|wav|aiff|pdf|css|zip|svg'

    Also, the fuel/application/config/mimes.php may not have the correct mapping for the file you are uploading. I sometimes directly debug that in the CI Upload class looking at the file_type property.
  • I'm just trying to upload a regular .jpg

    I've pasted the snippet above in both MY_fuel.php and fuel/config/fuel.php.

    Still the same. How can I debug the CI Upload class.
  • According the CI Upload class the upload image is: image/jpeg
    and the allowed_types are: array(7) { [0]=> string(3) "jpg" [1]=> string(4) "jpeg" [2]=> string(3) "jpe" [3]=> string(3) "gif" [4]=> string(3) "png" [5]=> string(3) "zip" [6]=> string(3) "svg" }

    If I set the $ignore_mime to TRUE then the file will upload.

    Will this be a security risk?
  • Are you able to get to what line the CI_Upload::is_allowed_filetype() method is returning false at (e.g. between 885 and 923 in latest release)?

Howdy, Stranger!
