WordPress Multisite Network Settings "Upload file types" Not Working

Reported by: rupok's profile rupok Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: General Keywords:


Steps to replicate:

  • Create a fresh WordPress Multisite
  • Go to My Sites > Network Admin > Settings
  • Check the "Upload file types" option. "ttf" is not allowed there by default.
  • Add "ttf" in that input field, Save.

Now try uploading a ttf file through the native media uploader. WordPress still won't allow uploading .ttf files.


  • Add the following line in wp-config.php file and save:
    define('ALLOW_UNFILTERED_UPLOADS', true);

Now you can upload .ttf files.

  • Not only that, now you can upload files which have type not in the "Upload file types" settings.

Summary: "Upload file types" declarations are not working. The workaround is not a fix because it allows *all* extensions. Sorry if I'm doing, but am I missing anything?

Hello @rupok, this Trac is only used for the site. For the WordPress core software please use

But to answer your question: ttf is not part of the default mime types. You have to extend this list with the mime_types filter first.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
