Attachment File Types
« on: February 19, 2009, 06:19:48 PM »

I wanted to attach a .abc file to a post but it's not a registered file type and neither is .txt. Would allowing files of this type be difficult to set up or might they cause security issues with the forum software?

Not difficult to set up, but is there any advantage over just including the text in a message?

Hello Theo, the file I was going to attach was an abc collection of 86 tunes (3/2 hornpipes as it happens) from John Offord's Johnny of the Greeny Cheshire Way. This is freely available on the net although I've forgotten just where I got it from; I could simply email it to the intended recipient but thought if I attached it to a post others might download and enjoy the content.

Pete.  :)

If its already on the net, then it would make more sense to post a link.  Is it one of the collections an this page?
