You can allow SVG to be uploaded on your website by using a plugin like:

WARNING: Before doing the below, please make sure to make a backup, since your website can potentially crash if you do this incorrectly.

function add_file_types_to_uploads($file_types){
$new_filetypes = array();
$new_filetypes['svg'] = 'image/svg+xml';
$file_types = array_merge($file_types, $new_filetypes );
return $file_types;
add_filter('upload_mimes', 'add_file_types_to_uploads');
