Power CMS upload a PDF

Hi all,
Can anyone tell me how to upload a PDF file with Power CMS.
I have tried to use the image upload but it says "invalid format".
A solution would be much appreciated.

Hi Craig,

Probably not the proper solution, but the only way I could work out to do this was to add 'pdf' to the list of 'AllowedExtensions' [image] at around line 120 of the 'WA_iRite/editor/filemanager/connectors/php/config.php' file:

$Config['AllowedExtensions']['Image']	= array('bmp','gif','jpeg','jpg','png','pdf') ;

Not sure this is kosher, but worked for me!


And even then, I had to go via the route: Insert/edit Image > Browse Server > 'Upload a new file in this folder' > Browse to the pdf > Upload.

Thanks neilo,
I couldn't find that file....
I found also that you can load a pdf through the link button once you set up the php globals file with cms/.
I have used your solution as it is much easier for clients.
Thanks again.
