it is possible to make attaching of .lha and .txt ?

Post by kas1e »

Just notice myself few days ago when want to attach some stuff from os4 : i can't attach .lha files, and code of forum say "can't attach .lha". Also as i notice today in some other topic, MickJt also can't attach .txt. It is possible to add ability to attach them ? .lha are pretty handy when you works on os4 to attach, and .txt are good to attach crashlogs.

Attaching images appears to work as the following random test shows

Txt can be added with the hidden tag as described http://forum.hyperion-entertainment.biz ... p?f=9&t=72

It wouldn't be my deceision on lha ofcourse but I would say attaching archives might make reading threads more difficult.

Dunno, but i already attached few archives in SDK sub-forum, and its not make topic difficult to read after that :) Forum already support zip, so why not add lha , it will be at least logical, because on aos we offten use lha archives.

I just noticed this my and I pretty much exploded with anger how #¢%& stupid a support forum can get. I bit myself in the lip and settled with :evil: "smiley". "Extension txt not supported" when you know crashlogs come as txt. Come on!

To save you eating your face, have a look here, and all will become apparent.

So you can paste crashlogs without cluttering up the forums.

@Rigo

Thanks. That also works. But why not adjust the attachment procedure to allow at least txt? And since it allows zip, why not lha?
