Fix GIF Images that are not Displaying in WordPress

Just a quick fix for when your GIFs dont play on your WordPress blog post or pages. I only found this out yesterday after switching themes.

The main culprit is the fact that WordPress or your theme is re-sizing images. GIFs don’t particularly like being re-sized and thus tend to stop “playing”.

Simple fix is to:

a. Resize the GIF (free tools: EZGif.com or GIFMaker).

b. Simply make sure that you are displaying it in it’s original size when you add media to a post or page.

Easy.

Another epic GIF from the team at Giphy.

Have your say!
