upload .docx document

  1. I am unable to upload a world document (.docx) from my computer. I have gone through the appropriate upload steps (I am doing upload/insert from the post modification page, selecting from computer, choosing the file from my computer, and saying upload), and it tells me that "Sorry this file type is not permitted for security reasons." ??? Anyone have any idea who I can contact regarding this - I NEED to upload recipe documents.

    The blog I need help with is terisimpsonblog.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi there,
    You can upload the documents to your WordPress.com blog using the Add Media icon. To upload a document and add its download link to a blog post or page see the information at these links:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/accepted-filetypes/
    note: .doc, .docx (Microsoft Word Document) are accepted file types
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/uploading-documents/

    If you want to embed the document itself into a post, then you will have to use a third party application like Scribd or Google Docs.
    See here:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/scribd/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/google-docs/

    As .doc, .docx (Microsoft Word Document) are accepted file type I don't know what's happening so I have flagged this thread for Staff attention.
