Author Posts November 5, 2006 at 4:10 pm #36451 dueyfinsterMember Since OpenDocument is a standard and PowerPoint/Word Documents are not(and can contain harmful macro code) it makes great sense to support it as an upload… Thanks!

I vote also for OpenDocument support. We can upload .doc files, why not .odt? August 22, 2007 at 1:13 am #37057 trentMember Until they do it, it is really easy to use the programs that use that format to export into .doc format and then people have the choice later to put it back into .odt so it really doesn’t matter too much.

Many of us would like to use open document format on our favorite libre software WordPress.

Given that Matt has recently been shouting about his newfound love for IE7, though, I don’t rate your chances. I don’t think they care so much about looking like OS advocates nowadays.
