  2. Copy the code section to functions.php file
function edit_upload_types($existing_mimes = array()) {

// Allowed file types to upload
$existing_mimes['woff'] = 'application/woff';
$existing_mimes['rar'] = 'application/rar';

// To add more file type support, add code later.

// File types that are not allowed to be uploaded
unset( $existing_mimes['jpg'] );

return $existing_mimes;
add_filter('upload_mimes', 'edit_upload_types');

# WordPress Using object storage

When WordPress has more than 500 images, it is recommended to store the images in the object storage (generally called OSS).

There are two ways for WordPress to use OSS. The first is to upload files through the OSS client and then call them in WordPress. The second is to integrate OSS with WordPress, and the files uploaded through the WordPress background are automatically stored in OSS.

  1. Upload your images to OSS by the OSS management tool
  2. Configue domain for your images folder
  3. Get your image URL from OSS like below
  4. Go to Wordpress backend -> Edit pag ->, insert the image URL

# WordPress integration with OSS

  1. Mount OSS to WordPress's wp-upload folder
  2. Every time a file uploaded via WordPress is automatically stored in OSS

The operation of mounting OSS is complicated and requires user independent research.
