GIF NOT SHOWING IN WORDPRESS – HOW TO FIX IT

Is your gif showing as an image but not as gif in WordPress?

You can solve this issue by selecting “Full size” on your gif before you add it to a page or a post.

Example:

When gif display settings are set to other options but “Full size”, then the animated gif will not show up.

if full size is not selected gif will not show up in WordPress

if the full size is not selected on “Display settings” gif will not show up in WordPress

The result will be a static image as per below.
