Title: Problem with uploading files with uppercase extensions (with possible patches)[S
Post by: dr236 on 11.12.2015 16:19:52
jDownloads 3.2.39 doesn't seem to handle correctly the uploading of files with uppercased extensions, such as foo.PDF, either in the backend or frontend.
1. In the backend, the list of allowed extensions is lowercased before checking against the extension of the file to be uploaded, so something like foo.PDF will never be matched.
I've attached a possible patch for administrator/components/com_jdownloads/controllers/uploads.php (uploads.php-patch.txt).  (Actually the first part of the patch is just to stop php warnings that COM_MEDIA_DEBUG is undefined on line 62 of uploads.php.)
2. In the frontend uploader, the file extension images in images/jdownloads/fileimages/ all have lowercase names, so foo.PDF won't be given the correct image. Also, for consistency with the backend, presumably the list of allowed extensions should be lowercased before checking.
I've attached a possible patch for administrator/components/com_jdownloads/tables/download.php (download.php-patch.txt).
Thanks, David

Hi
Thanks, I will make sure Arno sees this post.  We are just about to bring out version 41 (v40 was a development release so is being skipped) so maybe your patches will make it to that release- there is a big test cycle!.  However a release is planned for January concentrating on new versions of the layout files for better responsiveness, so it could make that release.
