    Hi,

    I’ve used your plugin for some time and it worked well up until now. I have created two custom files types as follows but they no longer work. Can these be added to the plugin, the other file type I needed to use .dwg works fine.

    Custom types:

    description – STEP
    File Extension – .stp
    mime type – ‘step’

    description – STEP
    File extension – .STEP
    mime type – ‘step’

    I’ve tried enabling the
    Check only file extensions and Skip wordpress checks

    but this doesn’t seem to work.

    Can you help

    no not yet, I’ve tried adding code into functions php but none of the suggested ones have worked. I’ve also used the disable real mime plugin, which worked and allowed me to upload step files again, but every other type of file (pdfs and jpgs .pngs) would then not work and I got the error message for these types. I had to go back to a back up of my files and database to get this removed after using that plugin (so I wouldn’t recommend it)

    Still searching for a solution as I really need to be able to upload step/stp files again!

    OK, thanks!

    Hi,

    we solve the problem with WPForms-support. Please check the mime-types of additional file-types in “WP Extra File Types”. The MIME-Type must be for Step-, Iges- … files “text/plain”. Please look on following screenshot.
