Support RAR and 7z Upload Extentions

Post by AKMARK5000 on April 3rd 2010, 3:51 am

I suggest that the extensions .7z and .rar be supported for uploads.


This picture describes the upload extensions that are currently supported:

Myself and many future users and members use an open source compression utility 7zip (.7z) and another compression utility called WinRAR (.rar) as alternatives to WinZIP (.zip).

7zip (.7z) is an open source compression utility that is free to use:
==> http://www.7zip.com/

WinRAR (.rar) is an compression utility that compresses 15% better and offers multilingual support:

I suggest that the extensions .7z and .rar be supported for uploads.

Voted yes. RAR and 7zip are one of the most common archive formats too.

Is this really all there is... five votes? It's been a week. Are people not concerned with this kind of thing?

I voted yes, Very good ( now there are six, tongue )

I don't know if other members even likes the idea of giving others permission to download stuff on their forums...
