I understand attachment of files is supported but which kinds and are they part of the backup?

(Joakim Bang Larsen) #1

The users of my forum tend to share a lot of plain textfiles with a SCL file ending (descriptions of microtonal music scales in the Scala format) and MP3 files for sharing their own music creations in those scales.

Does Discourse allow for sharing MP3’s created by yourself as attachments? Will they play inside Discourse?

Will these SCL and MP3 files be backed up with the site so that if you export all the content, they will be part of that backup in a designated folder?

Just enable the extensions / file types in allowed uploads in your site settings. They are no different than any other file attachment including images.
