Thank you, Ray! I’ll let you know how it goes when Chris has a chance to implement your instructions.
Just one question: You wrote “Besides adding the
The LaTeX files I have are .tex file extension. Are we supposed to add tex and ltx?

Thanks Ray, that points me in the (well several) right direction(s).

This is a bbPress issue when people copy and paste from other pieces of content into the Visual Editor.
You’ll have to open up the restrictions bbPress places on other HTML tags like
, etc. The alternative is stripping those elements during pasting.

And then just after posting this an example came through from this forum in this thread:
Possible it is related to the attributes in the html tags.

Hi all, we’re experiencing a random issue on our OpenLab instance. (I know, there is no such thing as a random issue, only one for which you have not yet discerned the pattern.)
Participants, on occasion, in the visual tab (it’s not a text/html tab by mistake thing), are finding that html code rather than the formatting the code should provide is…[Read more]
Thanks so much Ray! This is super helpful, as I was wondering how much ability one has to make those inputs themselves here versus reaching out to the DEV team to do it, or discovering an existing plug-in that converts things. Thank you!
Hi Syelle and Ryan,
Besides adding the
ltxfile extensions to the uploaded file types, you also need to register the mime type for the file type with WordPress.
You can do this with the following snippet in
* Add custom items to mime type array for uploads
function my_mime_types( $types )…
Im digging into this and will be back in touch soon with info – in the meantime, did you already clear the web browser cache on your browser and also reboot the machine? The Wordpress media library will reject uploads from cached pages. Its always worth a try. 🙂
Our allowed file types are:
<p data-pm-slice=”1 1 ”>jpg jpeg png gif mov avi mpg 3gp 3g2 midi mid pdf doc ppt odt pptx docx pps ppsx xls xlsx key mp3 ogg m4a wav mp4 m4v webm ogv flv svg</p>
<p data-pm-slice=”1 1 ”>I know that CityTech’s OL allows tex files, for example, though I don’t know if they use the plugin you mention…</p>
OK, by default the WP media library only allows a few file format types (for security purposes) the most common are –
- Images like .png, .gif, .jpg
- Documents such as .doc, .xls, .ppt, .pdf
- Audio like .wav, .mp3, .mp4
- Video like .mpg, .mov, .wmv
Im thinking, in the past you used a plug-in to add the LaTeX file or the plug-in converted it,…[Read more]
Our developer went to network settings and added tex to the uploaded file types, but when we tested this in a sub-site media library, by uploading a LaTeX file, we got the same error message (“this file is not permitted due to security reasons”). We believe we are missing a final step–do you know what it is?

The only thing that comes to mind is whether you also have Google Doc Embedder plugin installed, in addition to the PDF embedder? And if so, is it activated on this site? We did have some issues with that plugin on the OpenLab, and ended up retiring it.
Otherwise, I’m afraid I don’t have any suggestions beyond what it sounds like…[Read more]
