Livecode extension

Post by MaxV » Wed Aug 09, 2017 11:41 am

Hi,
why this forum doesn't accept the .livecode and .rev extensions for attachments?
Zipping and unzipping my stack.livecode every time is a loss of time and newcomers don't understand. Moreover on Mac the zip program add strange folders like .DS_Store or __MACOSX and other operating system users can't understand that they aren't of livecode.

Max's question is a good one, though, so I became curious if it was an actual file thing, or just a name thing. I took a script with a livecode extension, and simply changed the extension to something else (works in email, figured why not).
Upload file dialog wrote: The extension text is not allowed.
The extension livecode is not allowed.
The extension pdf is not allowed.
[stack with gif extension]
It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image.
In the end, I just changed ".livecode" to ".zip", and it uploaded no problem, but I can see issues with people who skim-read and download something like that. Caveat emptor, I think the warning to change the extension back should be enough :)
routineTester.zip
This one is just renamed, change 'zip' to 'livecode' to look.

Another funny thing I found was that actually zipping the file left livecode in the name, and it uploaded just because .zip was added, go figure.
routineTester.livecode.zip
This is an actual zip file!

I also can't figure out why you wouldn't be able to just upload the stack directly Max, after all the stacks weigh in at what, 10s of kb ? but ultimately you might want to just host it and link it or add .zip to it, cause this board don't like nothing but images and .zip :(

Please, can you advice LCNeil memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=49683 of this?
He usually works on forum settings.

Best regards

I assume you mean Klaus, I have no way to contact Neil.
