Add animated SVG to Wordpress

The fastest and easiest way to add animated SVG to Wordpress is by using the SVG Support plugin. You can download it from here.

Next, simply visit Settings » SVG Support page to configure plugin settings.

Check the box next to ‘Enable Advanced Mode?’. This will allow you to use advanced features like CSS animations and inline SVG rendering.
Click on the save changes button to store your settings.

You can also try the Safe SVG plugin. Just simply install and activate it, there are no settings to configure.

Because Wordpress uses  <img> tags to import the SVG, please make sure that you didn’t select ‘Animate on mouse over’ as export option for your SVG as it will not work.
