Support » Plugin: Preload Images » Perfect to improve animated GIF trigger on mobile

  • I wanted to trigger an animated GIF on hover. To implement this, I followed a simple online guide to *swap* an image on hover – set initial image as the first frame of your GIF, and the second image as the animated GIF itself.
    This worked perfectly on desktop, but there was a small but very annoying flash on mobile (on touch).
    Enter this plugin!
    I enabled the plugin for pages (setting), then copy/pasted the URL of my GIFs in the ‘Image URLs’ field on my specific page … and voila! The flash is history!
    Thanks to the plugin author – Ravikumar Patel (@ravipatel) – for such a simple and neat solution for my unique case.
    5/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
    PS: it took me longer to write a Support question followed by this review, than it did to actually apply the fix! 🙂
