I built a forum to accommodate technician needs files, there are some files that if we upload them to the forum, users can't download them such as .pdf .rar .txt files etc. I'm having complaints from customers because of this, can anyone give me a solution ADDON Or a plugin that can solve this problem?, or is there a setting in the forum to freely download what's in the forum ?

What exactly "users can't download" means? What is the exact issue? What is the error they get?

@dimalifragis You can't access it because I have set it up for VIP member accounts that can enter the sub forum

Yes I have tried Dashboard>forum>tools in section
"Do not allow attaching files with the following extensions:"
I see there are several extensions including .rar I tried to delete and save but did not see any changes

@anjas REMOVE the caching from wpForo and try again.

Also fix your issues.

you can see in this column that there are a lot of extensions but I have removed them but did not find the path I was looking for
