Why won't my file upload into the file widget?

If you're having trouble uploading a file into the file widget, the problem is most likely the file name.

File names cannot include any symbols or characters and must consist of numbers and/or letters only.

This includes accent marks on top of letters.


A successful file upload:


An unsuccessful file upload:

Sometimes unsuccessful file uploads can include longer error messages. In this case, it's still recommended to try changing the file name and re-uploading the file.
