Upload PDF files

Upload PDF files

I am using PowerCMS 2.1.1 and would like to upload a PDF file.
I added PDF to the allowed files in the kfm/library.php file.
I can browse to the file using the image icon and upload it, but then the system says file type PDF not allowed.

Neverthless, the file is now out on the server.
It's like the front end of the site doesn't know what the back end is doing.

Also, when I click image upload the screen KFM offers my folder of /powercms/uploadImages/ but doesn't show any of the images that are in there. FTP shows 8 images and 3 directories, so I know they are there.

Is there a value that needs to be adjusted?
