What are the allowed file types anyway? I am unable to upload gif, jpg, png :(
I've just done a jpg and gif above. For images the allowable types are supposed to be jpg, gif, png, jpeg
Uploading a png file...Did not work
Uploading a jpg file...Did not work
Uploading a gif file...Did not work
Interestingly, it uploads up to almost 75%, then says invalid format???? BTW, I am using Firefox 12.0.
Interesting..adds another side to this question......

What should be the behavior you expect, if this had been your answer and I had passed the comment? :)
