.pngfiles should not be filtered. Does it happen to all
.pngfiles or just a specific one that you are trying to upload?
Besides, that you could edit your
wp-config.phpand add the following line:
Best place to add this is right above the
/* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */line.
Let me know how it goes. Regards, Bobby
