Sharing .bloomd files online

We are currently building a web platform for the Ministry of Education and Human Resources Development in Solomon Islands. It will be used to share curriculum resources. We would like to put the .bloomd files on there for download, however WordPress doesn’t recognise the file type (even using a special plugin where custom file types can be added).

The plugin requests the following information - description, extension and mime type. I think it is the mime type that is causing the issue.

Does anyone have experience in sharing bloom reader files over WordPress and how did you do it?

Did you try mime type “application/zip”?

Wouldn’t the website users be better served by engaging with collections of relevant bloom files in the bloom website/ecosystem? Then WordPress could display these collections. Maybe the bloom website would be able to provide a collection level RSS feed. Then WordPress could consume that feed. That seems like the better architecture for social engagement.
