How to specify what types of files can be uploaded

Newer forums are set to allow any type of file to be uploaded to a post or message. If you would like to restrict which types of files can be uploaded, please contact customer support.

If you have an older forum, you can modify what types of files are allowed to be uploaded to your forum by following the directions below:

  1. Log in to your Website Toolbox account.
  2. Click the Settings link.
  3. In the Settings menu, click the General link.
  4. Edit the text in the File Types textbox.
  5. Save your settings.

If you don't see the File Types option, it means all file types are allowed to be uploaded to your forum. If you would like to restrict which types of files can be uploaded, please contact customer support.

Tip: Click the Browse file types link next to the File Types option to see a list of the most popular file types in each major category. The file type can be clicked to easily add it to the File Types textbox.
