I am working with Forums 3.1.9 on EE 2.5.5 and have run into some limitations that should be modifiable.

  1. Attachment file size: I see this note:

Attachments Max Size: 75KB

How can I increase this?

  1. Upload file type. If I try to upload a PDF for a Word document I get the following error:

The filetype you are attempting to upload is not allowed.

I checked /config/mimes.php and both .doc and .pdf files are listed. Do the forums have a difference mimes controller?
