Is it possible to update all previously uploaded jpg files to webp in the cms automatically (if webp support is enabled in phpinfo)?

Is it possible to also have a media type file for PDF's. I have a use case where PDF files could be shared across tables and records for download.

For instance, a membership_application_form.pdf would be uploaded once and it is frequently updated. Ideally I would not want to update each location where the file is referenced as long as the name is the same. htaccess is set to prevent caching pdf's

<FilesMatch ".pdf$">
    FileETag None
    <IfModule mod_headers.c>
        Header unset ETag
        Header set Cache-Control "max-age=0, no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate"
        Header set Pragma "no-cache"
        Header set Expires "Thu, 1 Jan 1970 05:00:00 GMT"

(completely fresh install) CMS Builder v3.55 (Build 2297)

Hi I can upload WEBP and PDF  but PNG or jpg jpeg format does not allow it.

 I can not upload JPG OR PNG format I get the permission error.

This is urgent as I can not finish a project

Can you post the error message you're receiving when trying to upload JPG/PNG files?

You don't have permission to access this resource.

( do not get this with Webp, it uploads as normal)

Does the error get logged in your CMSB Developer Log?  If so, can you post the "Error Details"?

My initial guess would be that your installation of ImageMagick doesn't have WebP support enabled.  This has come up a couple of times.  Here is a thread detailing a fix.  If those steps don't resolve the issue let me know.
