I read several "it doesn't work"-remarks: it works fine, but the documentation and description doesn't help newcomers! Settings you'll find in section "Settings, Extra File Types" It only inserts the required filter statements so wordpress allows to upload and managing those files. The plugin itself doesn't bring file support itself - only modifies the upload-filter!

Works partially. With correct mime type, yes you can upload new files as "documents", but they are either refused in the end, or renamed into TIF extension if the mimtype is image. impossible to insert them as attachement in a post. there is a better plugin out there that creates posts for that purpose.

This was great. We are a publisher, so the inability to upload .epub files as a Woocommerce product was a killer. It uses the Wordpress file types list. What you have to do is remember to go to Settings in Wordpress and select the file types you want AND scroll right to the bottom and save the changes. I didn't do that first time - thinking that toggling the checkbox was enough, so it didn't remember.

enabled gpx, applied changes, waited a moment, refreshed... then tried to upload a gpx file. Not working. Still the message that I am not allowed to upload that kind of file.
