Remove Unrestricted Uploads


If you are working with a WordPress site and getting the dreaded “Sorry, this file type is not permitted for security reasons.” message, fret no more! WordPress has a config that allows you to enable unfiltered uploads This, however, does not always work.

Use this plugin into your project and viola! You will have unfettered uploads.


  1. Go to plugins->Add New. Click on Upload Plugin.
    2) Browse the downloaded zip file And click install now.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. You are Done.
