    Instead of writing every extension you can just type "*" in the extension box and it will allow every extension.

    In the meanwhile I'll check this problem, it seems like a case sensitivity issue.

    I'm sorry but that did not seem to work either- now it will not even allow
    me to browse

    Hi,

    I noticed you entered "*" in the extensions option. Please remove the quotes "" and leave only the asterisk * to allow upload of any kind of file.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi mlarniem,

    Thank you for your message. To ensure that you cover all bases, please include other case combinations of the file extension, i.e. vwx, Vwx, vWx, vWX, and others. Do not include the . in the extensions, like .vwx or .VWX. And lastly, please ensure that you adjust the maximum file upload limit to accommodate larger files. 

    Please let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you for using JotForm!
