    The current versions Microsoft documents are not uploadable, but the Office 97 versions are. By now, is it really still a good idea to require that a Word or Excel document be converted to the older version before uploading it?

    And if the current versions were to be allowed, is that something that XenForo has to do?

    I think it should be fixed now. Give it a go. We need to get the forums onto the next version, but I need to do other things to set the server up for that first.

    Yes, that worked, and I see .docx listed as an allowable filetype too. Thanks, Daniel.
