attachment – participants cannot upload files of custom mime types

    Hello all, I’m using bbpress 2.6.3 with the last version of wp5. I defined some mime types I need on the site, eg the extension .nvn. I noticed that Participants cannot upload these newly defined mime types, why?
    Keymasters do it without any problem. When a participant tries, he gets the error “Sorry, this file type is not permitted for security reasons” as it was not permitted. Please help

    Hello, thanks for you reply. So you suggest to disable all the plugin and try with bbpress and GD Att. alone.
    I’ll try it and let you know.

    I queued to an existing topic here: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/permission-to-attach-image-isnt-working/

    It seems there’re others with my problem.

    Thanks to all – I solved the problem. To be useful to others I report a some hints:
    inexplicably, some capabilities in the Subscriber role in my wp installation were missing (publish_documents and, but not sure, override_document_lock) – I had to use Profile builder plugin to clearly see what’s missing, User Roles Editor was too much confusing.
