Webp compression

    My DNN site is .09.10.02. I added the webp to the valid file format line. 

    https://doc.dnngo.com/min...-in-the-minis-theme/

    If I replace a jpg with a webp, I will get this message: File type webp is invalid in this context. Valid file types include: bmp,gif,ico,jpeg,jpg,jpe,png,svg. 

    When I worked with the PHP Laravel site, I changed several files to make it work. I am a newbie. Please direct me to which files I should change.

      I think you need to do both.
      1, Add the mime type in the config file
      2. Add the webp extension to the allowable types.

      On that note: I don't understand the Laravel / php context as that DNN is running on Microsoft technology.

        Thank you for your answer. I will add the mime type in the config file. That's it?

          If you want to also be able to upload and see the webp files in DNN, you'll also want to update the Allowable Files setting.  

          Go to the persona bar while logged in as a superuser. Then go to Settings > Security > More > More Security Settings. 

          Add the webp file extension to the Allowable File Types field, and save the change.

            I added the WebP to those locations. I have no problem uploading the WebP in the image directory, but the CK editor gives me an issue that says this file is invalid. I don't know which setting in the CK editor I troubleshooted.

              Ah, well... in that case, I'd recommend not using the HTML module for anything beyond simple text.  Everything else that requires more should use any of the structured content solutions out there so that you can perform nearly any content action without worrying about whether or not a third-party HTML editor is going to allow it.  It will be a much better investment of time.  :) 

              (Especially since the two most popular options are free and open-source.)  ;)

                Yeah, it has been frustrated for me. The WebP came out so many years ago, and those third party things don't keep with the trend.
