Support » Plugin: Cimy User Extra Fields » Restricting the file type to PDf or JPEG/JPG

  • Hi Marco and all!

    I’d like to have a field type “file” in the registration form. Could you tell me how can i restrict the file type the user can upload to .PDf and .JPEG/.JPG files for example?

    Otherwise, it could be dangerous to let users upload any kind of files like .exe and then you may find them in the database.

    Thank you very much for your feedback.

    Since v2.3.9 the plug-in follows whatever WordPress allows, exe are not allowed I think, so there is no worry about it.

    great! Thank you

    However, where and how can i make a check that the file is only .pdf or .jpepg/.jpg file ?

    Thank you

    You can add white listed extensions in the equalTo rule like written in the top of Add a Field section.
    However looks like it only prevents it from a JavaScript point of view, not in the backend, so is a fake protection. Might fix it if really needed.

    Note: WordPress should have a front-end to configure this, WordPress MS for example has it.
