Description of problem

When you start a new forum using the ModernBB theme (I assume it would be the same for any version though) the default header img is an svg file to allow it to scale... when I try to upload my own svg file (made in Illustrator) it says the file type is not supported. How does one get a vector img uploaded to ensure cross platform scaling... or is there another way?

Hello,

Are you uploading the images to servimg or another imagehost?

If you are editing the image, you can save it as a png file.

I was uploading using the servimg popup in Pics Management. I'm trying to upload my own svg file so it scales between platforms as the default one does. PNG files don't scale do they?

I'm assuming the only way to do it is via a third party host... if I can find one that will host svg files... maybe use Github???

Try uploading it from a topic on your forum.

Ok.. will try it now.. though the servimg website doesn't list svg files as an allowable extension.

Exactly the default image is not hosted on Servimg.

It's ok... I understand that svg files are basically text files and so can have malicious code in them... so can't be uploaded.. will just have to think of a work around... I will see if I can get some webs space to host it remotely.

There should be host sites that allow svg files.
