I tried to upload a .blend
You should be able to do that since I've downloaded
standard blends before, not inside a .zip or .rar, and
they turned out fine.  But when I select my catagory, the thing
says that this file type is unknown or dissalowed, and I tried one
that wasn't in fan, art, but it still gave me the same message!

why is it doing this to me?!?!?!

Maybe the category you are choosing is the incorrect one, have you tried others? Also always place it on 3D category if it’s a .blend file if you place it as a drawing, there’s a chance it won’t accept it.

to just uploading the .blend file.  thanks anyways though! ;)

Ayyyyy..... I can't upload it. Server error or something. However, I was able to upload my cover png successfully. Somehow, sta.sh might be down again. I tried uploading it by email, but, still doesn't work.

Che tipo di modello è? a seconda di cosa sia il modello
è in quale categoria va

I have the same problem, which is most of us here too. I tried to upload a ZIP file resource pack, but it's didn't work. So if i try it sometimes later, maybe once it will working to upload?

he84 Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2018
Since i could solve the upload. The problem was i packed in a ZIP file 2 ZIP files. It's a 2 versions for Minecraft, i mean Minecraft resource pack for 1.11.2 and for 1.12.2. So i separated the 2 versions. And the resource packs should be in ZIP, or won't work.

when I upload, I recieve
Error uploading file: Unable to create or update stash item.
Reply
:icondianita98:
dianita98 Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2018  Hobbyist Artist
well this could be several things

if you are using a .rar file make the folder a .zip file instead and try it.

another thing you can try is uploading it to sta.sh and then instead of choosing "choose a file to upload" click
"select file from sta.sh" and then continue as normal.

another reason is that sometimes Deviantart is making updates which most of the time is around 11pm to 1am and this affects
some people who are trying to upload stuff, it happens to me all the time, I just wait for later and then try to upload again.

also make sure that you are uploading either a .zip file or a .rar file.

I hope this helps! if the problem continues let me know and I will try to find more solutions.

The problem is that we could not upload a zip file containing a password or an all capital name I believe?
