Welcome to the Question2Answer Q&A. There's also a demo if you just want to try it out.

Starting with version 1.4.1 you can upload any file by using the "Link" button and then the tab upload (if you enabled this feature in your admin settings).

Unfortunately the filename gets changed -> the dot in front of the file-extension gets replaced by a minus.

xyz.doc   will become   xyz-doc

Is this a compatibility feature for HTTP headers and browsers or a bug?

To overcome this I modified the qa-blob.php in the line 66 (just added the \.  ):

$filename=preg_replace('/[^A-Za-z\.0-9 _-]/', '-', $blob['filename']);

up to now I could not see any drawback...  :)

I think you're absolutely right about this - I'll check into it and confirm for the next maintenance release.
