Pages - Upload Field Issues

Hi,

I noticed if the file is using a non-common or custom extension for the upload field it will not append the correct file ending on the end anymore. For instance when you do a .mp3 file it will be like:

hereismyfile.mp3.234324534565436.mp3

IPB seems to always add a hash, and then append the file ending again. However when using a custom or non common file ending it will not append it back to the end so then your left with a random hash as the file TYPE.

hereismyfile.custom.234234234234

And it leaves it like that, therefore breaking the file and requiring a manual rename of the file by the end user. Is there any way around this..?

In the settings for this Upload Field, you have "Upload Type" to Any Files and not Images ?

Or are you using "Editor" for the field type with attachments enabled ? :)

Although unlikely, then go to System > Settings > Posting and just check what you have under the General tab for Attachments , particularly if you have set "Allowed File Extensions"
