How to use SVGator Plugin for WordPress

As WordPress doesn't allow to upload the SVG files that contain JavaScript, we developed our own plugin to make it easier to add your animations.

All you need to add an animated SVG to WordPress is this plugin. We have another page describing how to add an animated SVG to WordPress without using the plugin. Those methods are workarounds and may not work all the time. WordPress has a ton of custom themes, page builders, and other customizations that may interfere with our plugin. If the SVGator plugin doesn't work for you, you could still follow and use a method described on the page "How to Add Animated SVG to WordPress"

To use animated SVGs in WordPress , all you have to do is to install the plugin, login with SVGator ,  import your SVG, add your SVG on a page.
