backupwordpress clobbers upload_mimes() filter (4 posts)

    When using BUWP 1.6.6 and WP3.3.1, this function in my functions.php file has no effect:

    add_filter('upload_mimes', 'custom_upload_mimes'); 
    function custom_upload_mimes ( $existing_mimes=array() ) {
      $existing_mimes['wif'] = 'text/plain';
      return $existing_mimes;

    Since it works when I deactivate BUWP, I can only suppose that BUWP is removing the filter. Why would it need to do that and how can I make it stop?

    Hi halifaxious

    BackUpWordPress doesn't interact with the upload_mimes filter at all, so I'm don't think it's that, can you reproduce the issue on a fresh install of wordpress with the default theme and no other plugins?

    Backupwordpress does break 'upload_mimes' functionality.

    See: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/21299

    Your plugin calls the function sanitize_file_names() which calls get_allowed_mime_types() too early.

    Nice spot, I'll get that fixed in the next version.
