Hi

I have a blog with more then 3000 users.
They are aloud to publish, but I only want them to upload pictures (png/jpg) and no pdf or other documents.
How can I do this via .htaccess?

Thanks,
HP

htaccess is not in position to distinguish upload content.
you need to add a filter to uploads (or tweak upload function in PHP)

You need a plugin that users the upload prefilter method to distinguish and discriminate files based on file extension or MIME type.
