Add some flava to your blog with the Giphy WordPress plugin!! Animated GIFs are a proven way to improve
traffic, increase time on site, and promote sharing on social media platforms. Don’t take our word for it,
blogs have already utilized Giphy GIFs to boost the popularity of their posts.

Adding a GIF with the Giphy plugin couldn’t be easier. Just click the Giphy logo button in the text editor,
search or browse via tags to find GIFs, and click on a GIF to get a better view. Once you’ve found the GIF you
want, simply click the “Embed into Post” button, and, voila!, the GIF is automatically inserted into your

  • A screenshot of the Giphypress plugin window open in all its glory. Enter search in the input box and the bottom and hit return to search all the GIFs. Clicking on a GIF will bring up the detail view.

This view displays the tags associated with the GIF and allows you to easily embed the GIF into your wordpress post by clicking the embed button that the big green arrow is pointing to. If you want to go back to your search results click on the back button which the small blue arrow is pointing to.

  1. copy the ‘Giphypress’ directory to your wp-content/plugins directory.
  2. go to your wp-admin and enable the Giphypress plugin in the wordpress plugins admin.
  3. once the plugin is enabled you should see the Giphy logo in your tinymce editor rich-text editor panel!


  1. How can I see the GIF once I embed it into my post?
    For the time being, you can only see the contents of your embedded GIF by previewing the post itself. We’re working on a better solution for later versions so you can see the preview inline!

  2. Do I have to attribute credit for any of the GIFs I embed in my post?
    No, but it would be really nice of your to mention that you found your great GIF content on!

  3. Can I use your GIFs for commercial purposes?
    Non-commercial use of our content falls under “fair use” and is a-OK! However, commercial use is subject to the copyright of the original content owner.
    We try to have the correct source URL of the gif if possible and commercial use questions should be directed to the original source. If the GIF is from one our our partners (or GIF artists) we can help obtain rights for commercial use.
    Just email us at and we’ll help sort you out.


Doesn’t work

Not sure if it’s a Multisite issue or not, but this plugin does nothing on my install. When I click the add button it loads the page wrapper, but no GIFs are displayed when searching.

Wow! Giphy is finally here!

I’ve been using Giphy on FB chats for the past few months, and it’s really nice to see them here.

10/10 – Will even build a Giphy plugin if this doesn’t exist 😀
