I just tried to send someone a file and it won't accept jpg, doc or pdf files. So what sort of files can I send?

I've just tried to attach a jpg and then a pdf to a dummy private message and got the ' extension not allowed' message too. It may be something to do with increased security on the forum following some big problems with spammers earlier this year. If you don't get a response from one of the Administrators by Monday I would try emailing one of them direct. ( They are the Editor and Jon Bauckham ). I can't find any guidance in the Control Panel about what is and is not allowed.

I've got this noted down - I'll try and sort it out by the end of the week.

Best regards,
I've now left Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine. Please contact regarding any forum queries.
