LiquidFiles Documentation

When building a API client, this covers how to tell the client what settings should be set or not set in the client. This will make things a lot cleaner as we can avoid server side error messages, and provide client side validation.

In case the user is presented with an interface (email client plugin, …) these responses dictates what should be visible to the end user.

If the user isn't allowed to change file expiration, either grey out or remove those controls.
