If we include .ppt:s and .doc:s to forbidden file types, should we give some explanation to users when they try to upload them? So that it won't look like a missing feature. Something like this in teacherese:

"This seems to be Microsoft Office(R) Word document. The content would be much more usable for others if the actual content (text or images) would be published as Multimedia page. Currently we won't allow Word documents as pieces."

"This seems to be Microsoft Office(R) PowerPoint? presentation. The content would be much more usable for others if the actual content (text or images) would be extracted to images and published as Presentation resource. Currently we won't allow PowerPoint? presentations as pieces."

Please help me writing these explanations in clear and polite way.

In the "Add media piece" page we list the following file types as allowed: "Allowed file types: .jpeg, .gif, .png, .mp3, .mp4, .mov, .mpg, .3gp, .mpeg, .wmv, .avi, .swf"

I have understood that we have a whitelist of allowed file types, not blacklist of forbidden file types.

How is it implemented then???

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Time remaining set to 0h

(In [1321]) Fixed #1121. When uploading pieces in mmediapage and like, checks if content type is in whitelist. Also fixes error when uploading just piece and leaving file empty.
