PNG is in the list of allowable file types, but an attempt to upload an image of that type generates a message saying that that type is not allowed.

Linking to a PNG works.

I've just done a jpg and gif above. For images the allowable types are supposed to be jpg, gif, png, jpeg

Uploading a jpg file...Did not work

@Kev Riley @matt 4 @DaveC(Using names to make sure someone do not not miss it) What should be the behavior you expect, if this had been your answer and I had passed the comment? :)

I did not receive any update about Kev Riley's last comment :( This is where this [question][1] is still not marked as accepted. Damnnn.., I was not able to get the 50 points bounty for it ;)

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
