Does askbot allow to upload file that is not image?

When I try to upload files to the website, It forces me to choose one of the image format (jpq, png, etc.) So the question is, is there some hidden configuration somewhere that loosen the restriction? I want to allow freely upload to the site

There is a setting in the file ASKBOT_ALLOWED_UPLOAD_FILE_TYPES that does what you want.

We will implement a setting in the UI "settings" panel where you'll be able to enter allowed file extensions or completely remove the limitation.

Is there a way to allow any file type ?

Not in the current version, but can be implemented.

Any update on this, seems I still cannot upload files other than images.
