SVG from Media Library downloading instead of displaying

Hi there, Im trying to use a SVG file as an inline graphic like this :

But when I load the page instead of having the asset showing I'll get a save as window dialog to save the asset. Can you guys give a hand on how to avoid this?

This is actually going to be an issue with your IIS/web.config and not with Kentico.

You need to tell the site what a .svg file is for it's content type. Specifically, you need to set .svg to be the mime type/content type of image/svg+xml

In your Web.config, you'll need to find and add something like the below:

         <mimeMap fileExtension=".svg" mimeType="image/svg+xml" />
