Hello Emmy and Yola Team,
This morning I tried to upload some files and the same thing happen again.
I'm a Network Administrator here so there is no restrictions on the network.
When I press "Upload files" button in File Manager it popups a addition window with 2 buttons "Add a file" and "Upload files" (in my home it immediately goes straight to the browse window for selecting files). And it still does not allow me to upload a .html file as well. I'm using FireFox 5.0.1.
Best regard,
Triệu Minh Đức

Hello Trieu,

We are not supporting FF5 at the moment as there are still a few issues we are working on. Can you please try uploading your .html file with another browser on your machine and see if this helps.

Dear jeremy,
I've down-graded FF5 to FF4 and everythings are alright now.
Thank you for your support and hope Yola will overcome these issues with FF5 soon.
Your faithfully,
Trieu Minh Duc

Thanks for the zip work around. I have no idea why I didn't think of that!

Hello esabarros

As a workaround, you can upload your .exe to a file hosting site and then link to your .exe file.

I hope that idea works for you!

Or could compress it first?

I went the whole length of creating a restricted (password protected) page in order to deliver large files (especially access databases) to my clients, and now I find I can't do it. Any chance Yola might reconsider?

Please allow at least .MIS files to upload, because we do not have anyway to share our software setup creations

Why don't you just upload the .mis file on Dropbox? Then you can link to the "public link" on your site and it will download (or open) the file.

It would be the same as hosting the .mis file on your site.

Hope that helps.
