Tropicana : You need to make sure that after you've saved the file, you need to close Word. Otherwise, the program is still on, and windows tries to send the Word Document + the Program to the web - and website can only use the file. And so it gives an error.

Hi! Call me James. :)

SMUT! Click if you're an adult PK oldbie!



MODLY NOTE: merging this with a related topic. -gal-texter Jun 2008


I tried to upload a new story, a one-shot, the same way I have always uploaded chapters of the Fifth Element. Three times I get the same

error message:

We can only accept files in HTML or DOC formats. You uploaded application/msword.


The story IS in doc format. Like all my other submissions, the file ends with the standard "doc" suffix.

What's going on. I'm worried not only about this particular one shot story, but whether I'm going to be able to upload further chapters of the Fifth Element

Hi! Call me Jonathan. :)




Hello, Iambexis, I hope you've found this reply to your question in its new home, as I've moved it from where it was originally posted to the "Questions" forum.

As you may or may not have noticed, there have been recent changes here and there in the fanfiction section code, which I can only assume has led to the troublesome little bugs popping up.

Are you able to upload new chapters for your other fic, "The Fifth Element"?

In any case, it is rather concerning that you have previously succeeded in uploading and only recently begun to experience problems. Please provide version information for the following bits of software:
  • Operating system
  • Browser
  • Microsoft Word
Also, it may prove insightful if you would email me a copy of the document you are trying to upload as an attachment. My email address is reflected below:

CO-MOD's NOTE May 2008: Dug this up from the old Administration forum. I suppose Bexis had solved this problem himself. I'm guessing it's related to the "ERROR: You uploaded application/octet-stream" issue, which can be solved by closing the MS Word program should be closed as explained by NAPPA here.
