Re: Feedback requested on APM and Sitescope offers

Hi,

In a post or when replying to a post you can use the file attach tool that will allow you to attach image files in formats png, jpg, and gif. Other file types must be placed in secure storage and linked.

This is also explained to in the community quick start guide.

Best regards,

HPE Support

   See also:

   Unless someone has "fixed" this (I claim) foolish restriction, you
may be able (still) to attach anything you want, so long as the file
_name_ ends with one of the acceptable strings.  This adds the
inconvenience of changing the name back for anyone who downloads the
attached file, but that may be a small price to pay.

   On VMS, file names with multiple dots can cause problems, but
anywhere else, you should be able to change, say, "my.doc" to, say,
"my.doc.jpg", and attach that.  I haven't tried this since August, but,
as you can see, it worked then for some plain-text (Fortran source)
files.

   Thanks for the link?  Is it also _justified_ there?  I'd like to see
that.

The Quick Start guide just tells you how to attach images:

Justification is here:

Perhaps they are checking for certain types now?

''The attachment's hp_1_inst.pcapng content type (application/x-pcapng) does not match its file extension and has been removed.''
