    Hi – I get this error message when trying to import csv of events –

    Sorry, this file type is not permitted for security reasons

    but NOT when I import events or organisers. Bug maybe? Unlikely to be a conflict given that the other types of import are fine?

    Hi,
    same problem here.

    I have try to upload CSV-File to media – but same problem without success.
    However, this also seems to be not a problem of TEC, but from WordPress, because I try to upload this file on development environment without installing TEC-plugins and having only installed theme twenty seventeen.

    Best regards

    It is just very odd that the csv file for venues and organisers is accepted for upload without any problem, but not the events file. Actually the latter does have html tags within the content – perhaps that is the problem, now that I think about it further in terms of what the difference might be. I will test.

    Hi
    just have found:
    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/this-file-type-is-not-permitted/

    “With the upgrade to WordPress 4.7.1, some non-image files fail to upload on certain server setups. This will be fixed in 4.7.2, see the Trac ticket.”

    Hello to all 🙂

    I can confirm Hans-Gerd’s reports (thank you, Sir!) – this is a known issue from WordPress itself rather than our plugins. I’ll close this thread out, but please feel free to create a new one if you have any more questions or concerns. Have a great weekend, everybody!
