Hello,

Not sure where to post this, but this statement

<< On iOS devices, you will only be able to upload images and videos due to the restrictions from iOS. >>

in the Mahara manual at http://manual.mahara.org/en/17.04/misc/mobile.html#mahara-mobile 

is incorrect.

Since iOS 8 (2014), the Document Picker allows selection of any type of file, provided you have an app installed that implements it (e.g. Dropbox, Google Drive among others). See https://developer.apple.com/library/content/documentation/FileManagement/Conceptual/DocumentPickerProgrammingGuide/AccessingDocuments/AccessingDocuments.html for details.

 

How can I have this changed ?

Hi Nicolas,

Thank you very much for letting us know. That's good news. :-)

I added the note on your behalf at https://git.mahara.org/user-manual/manual/commit/c5bf10ca8399ca947a3504dec254b3a7254de436 and

It will appear in the user manual tomorrow.

Cheers

Kristina
