When I upload any type of file (jpg, gif, pdf) using a field type "File", the file is uploaded to the server in the /uploads/ directory, however the file is not added to the Media Library (no reference in the DB either).
If I have a textarea w/html editor field, I can upload a file correctly using the editor's image upload feature.
I tried creating an unrepeatable field group with only the File field and the issue is the same.
All my plugins are disabled other than Simple Fields.
Any idea why this would be happening?
