Sorry, this file type is not permitted for security reasons error message - exceptions allowed?
Is there a list of file types that are allowed to be uploaded and is it possible to request exceptions for certain sites? I'm trying to upload SPSS syntax (.sps) but am unable to "for security reasons."

Hi Scott - Here is our current list:
jpg jpeg png gif mp3 mov avi wmv midi mid pdf doc docx sav epub xls xlsx rtf txt mp4 ppt pptx
I don't think this is publicly viewable anywhere, though we could probably make it so.
Do we want to add SPSS file types to the list?

I've added .sps to the list.
This page shows that SPSS supports many different file types https://www.file-extensions.org/spss-file-extensions, but it seems risky to me to add them all proactively. Since .sps was specifically requested, I've added just that one for now, and IMO we should wait for further requests before expanding the whitelist.
Scott, please feel free to reopen if the user continues to have problems, and thanks!
