unable to upload image to kb article
Problem reported by Glen Harvy - 2/9/2020 at 11:16 PM

I'm using the latest version on a shared hosting IIS installation.

When I try to insert an image into a new KB article I get the following:

The image shows as shaded in the above capture.

I've attached all logs that were created before and during when the error was shown.

Thank you.

Hi Glen, 

Per our ticket, I was able to replicate this error after I made a change in the settings.  As the system administrator I went to Settings > Configuration > Security > Uploads tab.  I removed the default asterisk (.*), that allows all file types, from the top section "Allowed extensions for document uploads in HTML editor" (see the below image).  In that text box I put ".doc" (no quotes), then tried to upload a .png to a kb article.  That is when I got your error.
