    Did you upload your gif and then resize it? If so then that’s where you went wrong. In order for an animated gif to play, it must be full size when you upload it. Make sure the gif is no larger than the maximum width for your theme’s post area. If it is, then resize it on your computer before uploading it.

    The animated gif needs to be uploaded at the exact size required for the spot you are putting it (header, into a page or into a post). If it is resized by wordpress, then the animation will be lost.

    For maximum image width in pages and posts, see this post by Panos.
