-Filtering file types. Admin can choose which he can allow.
-No themes conflicts
-No plugins conflicts
-Files plugin required
I made this plugin because there have been tons of requests since elgg 1.7 to filter MIME Types. It might not be the 'prettiest' code but it works.
The file has to be uploaded before filtering. This is standard for filtering file types. I was planning to filter via browser, but it is widely recommended to rely on the server, rather than on the web browser.
Ideally, a Flash Uploader will be better, 'cause you could 'hide' non-allowed files. But this works.
I will add more MIME types in a week.
