Invalid file type error when uploading doc and pdf

Invalid file type error when uploading doc and pdf

Hi
Have installed HTML Editor. Image and swf upload both work perfectly, but when I try to upload pdf or doc files, I get an 'invalid file type' error. Looking though the config files, these seem to be allowed, so is there some other setting required?

Thanks

Are you guys referring to the Advanced File Manager or the the basic one?

When setting up the upload manager, make sure you set up the Advanced File Manager by creating a connection to a database. To setup the Advanced File Manager, open up the HTML Editor wizard (by clicking on an existing one and hitting edit or inserting a new instance) and click on the customize next to Global File Upload Settings. In the HTML: Site Settings dialog, make sure to set a connection in the Advanced File Manager section.

Using the simple upload manager, uploading pdfs and docs will throw that error.

Why the difference?

Hi Jimmy

If I click on 'browse server' I can upload a doc (and presumably other formats too) from there, but if I click the upload tab then 'send to server' after selecting a file, I get the error message. However, if I choose the latter route for uploading an Image or Flash movie, I don't get any error. Seems inconsistent and likely to confuse the end user.

Having managed to upload a file, I now get the error when I try to update the page.

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/...../public_html/adminsection/admin/pagesform3.php:4) in /home/...../public_html/adminsection/admin/pagesform3.php on line 58

which I didn't receive yesterday!

Cheers

Chris

This error is usually caused by having whitespace between php tags on that page. Make sure there is no whitespace between your php tags. Here is an example:
?>

<?php

You'd want it to look like this:
?>
<?php

Thanks for bringing that to our attention. We have logged a bug for this and this should be fixed in a future release.

Do you have a link to a page that I can see this behavior?

I have the same error here, no pdf....

I found a workaround:
In the file HTMLeditor/editor/filemanager/connectors/php/config.php
Change line 141 into: $Config['AllowedExtensions']['Image'] = array('bmp','gif','jpeg','jpg','png','pdf','doc') ;

That'll do the trick... seems a bug :).
