Based on the error message you gave, I assume the following code in ~/lib/galaxy/datatypes/sniff.py is presenting the problem.
if check_binary( filename ): if ext not in unsniffable_binary_formats and not datatypes_registry.get_datatype_by_extension( ext ).sniff( filename ): raise InappropriateDatasetContentError, 'The binary uploaded file contains inappropriate content.' Have you tried adding your 'jpg' extension to the following in ~/lib/galaxy/datatypes/binary.py? # Currently these supported binary data types must be manually set on upload unsniffable_binary_formats = [ 'ab1', 'scf' ] On Jul 22, 2011, at 11:52 AM, Jelle Scholtalbers wrote: > Hi Greg, > > I used that link when trying to create the support.
