Enabling SVG Uploads in WordPress with Breakdance

This guide explains how to enable SVG file uploads on your WordPress site using Breakdance without the need for additional plugins or code snippets. By default, WordPress restricts SVG uploads due to security concerns, but Breakdance offers a straightforward solution.

How to Enable SVG Uploads

Adjusting Breakdance Settings

  1. Navigate to Breakdance > Settings within your WordPress dashboard.
  2. Proceed to the “Advanced” settings section.
  3. Before enabling SVG uploads, acknowledge the security warning presented. Enabling SVG uploads can present security risks.
