How to Allow more file types Magento

Share

Allow more file types to Magento.

I wanted to add a PDF file to the product description but Magento just allow image file types.

Let’s get started.

Core Files

Look for the file: /app/code/Core/Mage/Cms/etc/config.xml

You should create the same folder structure inside /app/local/…

That’s the way to make the change upgrade proof. But I did and didn’t work

Add the extensions

Open the config.xml I mentioned above and around the line 100 you will find something like this:

<extensions>
<allowed>
<jpg>1</jpg>
<jpeg>1</jpeg>
<png>1</png>
<gif>1</gif>
<pdf>1</pdf>
</allowed>
<image_allowed>
<jpg>1</jpg>
<jpeg>1</jpeg>
<png>1</png>
<gif>1</gif>
</image_allowed>
<media_allowed>
<flv>1</flv>
<swf>1</swf>
<avi>1</avi>
<mov>1</mov>
<rm>1</rm>
<wmv>1</wmv>
</media_allowed>
</extensions>

Please notice I added <pdf>1</pdf> to the allowed extensions.

After uploading the file refresh the Magento Cache and also try to log out from the Magento Admin panel.
