Add support for SVG inside WordPress Media Uploader

Adding this snippet to the functions.php of your wordpress theme will add support for uploading SVG inside Wordpress Media Uploader. It is important to consider risk when uploading SVG as it is an XML file. Keep security in mind and don't allow just anyone to upload SVG. You also may want to consider running the Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) plugin if you have any concerns.

Code Snippet:

function wps_mime_types( $mimes ){
$mimes['svg'] = 'image/svg+xml';
return $mimes;
add_filter( 'upload_mimes', 'wps_mime_types' );
