Reviews

Excellent!

The perfect way to support more file types though updates of WordPress. The developer is also extremely helpful with requests – many thanks for your support!

No support for .mobi files

You can add to the list of supported types, but .mobi is a much more commonly wanted file type than many of the extensions that are listed.

Excellent plugin

Sure, you could simply add a function to your theme’s function.php file, but why when you have access to an amazing plugin that let’s you select easily the file extensions and is theme independent. Well done.

Easy to use

Simple tickbox GUI so no need to look up mime type codes. easy to use. great job.
