How to Allow more file types Magento

Allow more file types to Magento.

I wanted to add a PDF file to the product description but Magento just allow image file types.

Let's get started.

Core Files

Look for the file: /app/code/Core/Mage/Cms/etc/config.xml

You should create the same folder structure inside /app/local/...

That's the way to make the change upgrade proof. But I did and didn't work ๐Ÿ™

Add the extensions

Open the config.xml I mentioned above and around the line 100 you will find something like this:

<extensions> <allowed> <jpg>1</jpg> <jpeg>1</jpeg> <png>1</png> <gif>1</gif> <pdf>1</pdf> </allowed> <image_allowed> <jpg>1</jpg> <jpeg>1</jpeg> <png>1</png> <gif>1</gif> </image_allowed> <media_allowed> <flv>1</flv> <swf>1</swf> <avi>1</avi> <mov>1</mov> <rm>1</rm> <wmv>1</wmv> </media_allowed> </extensions>
Code language: HTML, XML (xml)

Please notice I added <pdf>1</pdf> to the allowed extensions.

After uploading the file refresh the Magento Cache and also try to log out from the Magento Admin panel.
