Make it easier to share FreeMarker files in threads (permitted attachment extensions)

Make it easier to share FreeMarker files in threads (permitted attachment extensions)

It is currently very difficult to share FreeMarker files within a post/thread (when the data is too large to comfortably be added in a code snippet) due to the ftltxt, and zip file extensions not being permitted.

For example, I was trying to share two FreeMarker files in a Developer Discussion thread, but got an error when trying to attach the two .ftl files.  I then renamed the files to have .txt extensions and tried attaching them, but got another error. Next, I added both of the .ftl files into a zip archive and tried to attach said zip file, but this resulted in an error as well.

I eventually had to host the two files within a GitHub repo and share hyperlinks to them.

It shouldn't be this hard to contribute FreeMarker content on Atlas.  Please add at least the ftl extension as a permitted attachment extension in Community Admin.

Hi @jeffshurtliff 

 

Sorry for the delay getting back to you on this we had to do some internal checks first. We have now updated the allowed filed types to include .txt and .ftl but we are not going to enable .zip for security reasons.

Please reach out to me if you are having issues using either of those file types.

 

Cheers,

Andy
