    The File Uploader allows those file extensions listed to be uploaded since those are preprogrammed into by default. If you would like to allow additional file types you will have to click on the field then edit its configurations. After that all you have to do is edit the extensions and list the ones that you would like to add in to allow them to be uploaded. If you don't do this, then they will be disallowed by the uploader.



    I hope this helps and if you need more help or if the problem continues please let us know.

    Hello asny10011,

    In addition to Deygus instruction, you can also allow all types of file to avoid such error.

    To do this, you just need to put "*" on the  "Extensions" field under propeties.

    Feel free to let us know if you hae further questions or inquiry.
