In this video I’ll walk you through how you can add GIFs to your WordPress website using Giphypress.
Many site owners like adding GIFs to their website because it tells a story much quicker than say a static image but a lot of times those GIFs are a lot larger and can start clogging up your website. There’s a website called Giphy that hosts a lot of the animated gifts that you see and you can actually add them to your website easily by using a WordPress plugin called Giphypress.
So I’m gonna walk you through how to do that. First thing you want to do is head over to your WordPress dashboard, go to plugins, add new.
And we’re looking for a plugin called Giphypress and we’ll install it and activate the plugin.
Once it’s activated you can go and create a new post like you normally would. Up here we have a new icon that will let you search for anything you want to add a GIF for.
So I’ll type in something, search, and pick the one that I want, and then down here you can embed it into the post.
Now when I click publish and we can go and view it on the site we see it in action.
