I'm not sure which switch needs to get thrown on my account, but I'm no longer able to upload PDF sheet music. sf-confused

I really don't know why that is. I'll check the preferences for uploads.

Maybe it lies only within the purview of Administrators.

I think I got spoiled by my previous tenure... sf-cool

If you can't sort it out, I'll just send them to you to add to the library.

Make sure the last three letters of your document have either .pdf or .PDF
It should work. I checked permissions.

I still get a "file extension error" even though the file is definitely a PDF with the correct file extension. 

For the record, here is what I appear to be allowed to upload:

Image upload constraints: Size (bytes):  unlimited Width (pixels):  unlimited Height (pixels):  unlimited
Image allowed types: jpg, jpeg, gif, png, JPG, JPEG, GIF, PNG
Media upload constraints: Size (bytes):  unlimited Width (pixels):  320 Height (pixels):  240
Media allowed types: swf, dcr, mov, qt, mpg, mp3, mp4, mpeg, avi, wmv, wm, asf, asx, wmx, wvx, rm, ra, ram, SWF, DCR, MOV, QT, MPG, MP3, MP4, MPEG, AVI, WMV, WM, ASF, ASX, WMX, WVX, RM, RA, RAM

 

PDF files are not on the list. I can't even attach them to PM to send to the Admins.

pdf is not an image or a media file. It is listed under other files allowed. Did you copy the whole thing or just the top?

The whole thing that is on my screen. When trying to upload files via the "Add Files" button (when you are taken to your file directory) all PDF files are greyed-out, as are any other incompatible files.

What if I upload the files with a false file extension (i.e. change the PDF to JPG) and let you "fix" it on your end?

 

Er... no. Just tried it and it fails when trying to get an image-size for display.

 

Stalemate, I guess. I used to be able to upload PDF files under my previous status, so perhaps it's something only reserved for Admins.

Try logging in under my name and see if that works. It hasn't for me.

The only way I can log in under your name is by changing the password or you can PM it to me. Of course if I change the password and give it to you, you can change it back if you prefer doing it that way. :)
