    I am trying to upload a SVG file to MY OWN website and it is telling me that the file type does not meet security guidelines. I know what I am uploading to my own site.

    Can somebody tell me how to change these so called "security guidelines"?

    Thanks in advance

  2. WordPress has a whitelist of file types that it trust.

    If you want to extend this list you need to install a plugin such as my WordPress mime-config plugin this will allow you to add extra file types to the whitelist.

    Hope that helps.
