With the 'old' board it would only accept a limited number of native file formats to upload. For other file formats, you had to ZIP them up and upload the ZIP file.

As to the new board - I haven't tried it yet...

I had used RAR to archive the file. But the forum doesnt also accept RAR. If i rename the file to normal without extension then it also wont work.
It seems that my account doesnt have the privilege to do so.

I did say ZIP for a reason...

Generally TXT and some fo the graphic formats (to upload images directly). I think that is about it.

The 'old' board used to say what it accepted. That also seems to have gone with the 'new' board - although with your experience it would appear as though the limitation is still present (you are just not told about it anymore) :-(...
