    Question File Upload "Custom Files" in upload dialog

    I have altered the setup page so students can now upload publisher files, but when logged in as a student, within the select file to upload dialog they have to select All Files to see publisher files by default (causing a bit of confusion).

    How can I add *.pub to the default custom files list?

    Many thanks for a great product!

    That would be the My Files Filters, this is a set of filters that apply to user uploads.

    Either via the setup page or via hapConfig.xml
    HTML Code:
     <filters>
          <filter name="Access Database" expression="*.mdb;*.accdb" enablefor="All" />
          <filter name="Excel Documents" expression="*.xls;*.xlsx;*.xlt;*.xltx" enablefor="All" />
          <filter name="HTML Files" expression="*.html;*.htm" enablefor="All" />
          <filter name="Images" expression="*.jpg;*.gif;*.png;*.bmp;*.jpeg" enablefor="All" />
          <filter name="Powerpoint Files" expression="*.ppt;*.pptx;*.pptx;*.ppt" enablefor="All" />
          <filter name="Word Documents" expression="*.doc;*.docx;*.dotx;*.dot;*.txt;*.rft;*.pdf" enablefor="All" />
          <filter name="ZIP Files" expression="*.zip" enablefor="All" />
          <filter name="All Files" expression="*.*" enablefor="Domain Admins" />
        </filters>

    It would become

    HTML Code:
     <filters>
          <filter name="Access Database" expression="*.mdb;*.accdb" enablefor="All" />
          <filter name="Excel Documents" expression="*.xls;*.xlsx;*.xlt;*.xltx" enablefor="All" />
          <filter name="HTML Files" expression="*.html;*.htm" enablefor="All" />
          <filter name="Images" expression="*.jpg;*.gif;*.png;*.bmp;*.jpeg" enablefor="All" />
          <filter name="Powerpoint Files" expression="*.ppt;*.pptx;*.pptx;*.ppt" enablefor="All" />
          <filter name="Publisher Files" expression="*.pub" enablefor="All" />
          <filter name="Word Documents" expression="*.doc;*.docx;*.dotx;*.dot;*.txt;*.rft;*.pdf" enablefor="All" />
          <filter name="ZIP Files" expression="*.zip" enablefor="All" />
          <filter name="All Files" expression="*.*" enablefor="Domain Admins" />
        </filters>

    Thanks for the quick reply. I already have that set, this is my config:

    Code:
        
    <filters>
          <filter name="Access Database" expression="*.mdb;*.accdb" enablefor="All" />
          <filter name="Excel Documents" expression="*.xls;*.xlsx;*.xlt;*.xltx" enablefor="All" />
          <filter name="HTML Files" expression="*.html;*.htm" enablefor="All" />
          <filter name="Images" expression="*.jpg;*.gif;*.png;*.bmp;*.jpeg" enablefor="All" />
          <filter name="Word Documents" expression="*.doc;*.docx;*.dotx;*.dot;*.txt;*.rft;*.pdf" enablefor="All" />
          <filter name="ZIP Files" expression="*.zip" enablefor="All" />
          <filter name="All Files" expression="*.*" enablefor="Domain Admins" />
          <filter name="Publisher Files" expression="*.pub" enablefor="All" />
        </filters>
    It allows students to upload publisher files, but in the dialog you have to change the file type drop down to All Files (*.*). Any way around this?

    odd, it should add Publisher files to the drop down list selector.

    Firefox doesn't really support the file format filters so the drop down is always All Files.

    Perhaps this is an IE 'bug' then. I've tried it in chrome and firefox, both always default to All Files.

    Strange thing is, when logged in as an administrator account, in IE, All files is defaulted.

    Thanks for your help anyway
