Seems like a good plugin. However, my goal was to add GPX files (aka .gpx) to my media. On that, this plug-in doesn't work. I'd love it if this plugin made it possible to upload gpx files to my media.

Initially, I installed this plugin but still couldn't upload the file types I needed. Eventually, with assistance from WordPress Support, we figured that you need to upload the files directly into the media library, and then attach them to the page. Trying to upload files directly on to a page doesn't work. Once you figure that out, the plugin works great!

Checked the checkboxes I need (btw bad UI, I didn't even know what I had to do and where I had to go after installation), but nothing changed, still can't upload the files.
