In order to publish a new article, you need to visit the News module page. You can access this page by clicking on the News item in the Main Menu block, as you can see on the image below: (sorry images to be replaced) News Menu Item The News menu item has now 2 other items below it. You then need to select Submit News, like the image below: menu Submit News Menu Item This will take you to the Submit News form: menu Submit News Form Let's have a look at the different fields of this form.

 Type of attachment in News Module

When I'm trying to upload a .doc file as an attachment in News Module, I'm getting error.

How can I do that?
What type of attachments?


 Re: Type of attachment in News Module

look in modules/news/submit.php line 326 ($permittedtypes=array('image/gif', ....)

and add 'application/msword'

Best regards
