Uploads stripped of additional period and made lower case. Why? (2 posts)

    Why does the WordPress uploader strip additional periods from filenames, and convert them to lower case?
    For example, if I upload Generic_Tarball.tar.bz2 the uploader renames it to generic_tarballtar.bz2
    Wholly unacceptable.

    This behavior makes no sense, and forces one to either upload such a named file manually, or manually alter it's row in the database.

    I agree. That is some braindead logic. I sincerely hope that they consider this a bug.
