SIMPLE is the RIGHT word.

Only Problem I had was I was trying
to upload an .htm file. For file
type I entered htm. It should
have been text/htm.

I requested support for the above and
had an answer within 1/2 hour.

Great Module... Thanks Anders

I used this to allow the web site owner (when logged in) to upload pdf files to a specified folder, from the front-end, then she can edit article with link to pdf file. Works great! Very simple to use, easy to style. THANK YOU!!!!

I came across your module when I was looking for a way to have users/guests securely upload files onto my server. Now your module was flawless and did exactly what its supposed to.

One suggestion for the future. You should work on a captcha system for security reasons. You don't want people spamming your uploader right? ;)

I really think this is a very user extension if could allow upload of any file extention. But nice work... so far.
Owner's reply

thanks for the review!

In version 0.9.2b you are able to allow all extensions by adding a * for "Allowed File types". This will make any file up-loadable.
If you can't get it working for any file just send me a note from and we'll figure it out.
