How to Allow more file types Magento


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:


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.
