The good news is that some of them are now allowed like '.html' and '.js'.

If you want to upload an .exe file or a disallowed file just compress it into a .zip file and upload.

Hi Trieu,

You need to be a Yola Silver user in order to upload HTML and JS files.

I've obtained Yola Silver 3 days ago.
With the PC at home I can upload a ".htlm" file, but in the office I can not do the same. I don't understand why.

Hi Trieu,

We'd like to help you figure this out. Could you let us know which browser you are using, and also what happens when you try to upload .html files at your office? Does this happen with all files, or just the .html files?

Thanks for your on-time help,
As recommendations from you, I always use Mozila Firefox.
I didn't try with another type of files in the office after the upgrading, but the things seem very strange: when I press "Upload files" it didnt go straight to the file browse window as usual, but there is a addition one with 2 button "choose files" and "upload"...
My site is lhsbul1975.yolasite.com.

Hello Trieu,
If I am understanding properly, you are able to upload the html files from your home PC, but not from another computer at work? If that is the case, there could be some restrictions on the network, firewalls, or something like that. I would say that the best thing to do would be to ask your Network Administrator at work if they are aware of anything that might impede that type of action, they would know best. If I am mistaken and you cannot upload html files from anywhere, please let me know and we can give it a test.

Thanks,
Emmy

Hello Emmy,
May be you are right. I had recently re-setup the OS on the PC at the office.
So I will check everything up tomorow (It's night time local now) and will inform you what happens. In my home I'm working with the files normally and without any problem so far!
Thanks you very much,

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!

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.
