  1. Nice post Tom! (thumbs up)

  2. nice post! …get rid of flash folks!

  3. Nice…. I would love to try svg on my site now.

    • Right?! It’s so cool!

  4. Very good info, will have to save this for later use 🙂

  5. Excellent post!


  6. Great post. Your post explained how to create an animated logo with SVG and CSS very well. Thanks.

  7. That’s great, but stock WordPress refuses to support svg files. They claim the format is vulnerable to some xss exploit or something. Which is an absolute shame, the platform powering over 25% of the web refuses to allow the use of the perfect image format for the web. It is ridiculous. Something needs to be done about it. Soon.

      • Well Nathan I think that plugin needs to be apart of the article. At least to talk about WordPress and SVG.

        • Apart? Think you mean “a part”.

          You’re welcome.

    • Just add this to your WordPress themes function file:

      function cc_mime_types($mimes) {
      $mimes[‘svg’] = ‘image/svg+xml’;
      return $mimes;
      add_filter(‘upload_mimes’, ‘cc_mime_types’);

      Hey presto, WordPress supports SVG’s – no need for a plugin for something so simple!

      • To also allow SVG files upload to the Theme Customizer you need to add the following snippet too:


        new WP_Customize_Image_Control(
        ‘label’ => __( ‘Logo’, ‘themeslug’ ),
        ‘section’ => ‘themeslug_logo_section’,
        ‘settings’ => ‘themeslug_logo’,
        ‘extensions’ => array( ‘jpg’, ‘jpeg’, ‘gif’, ‘png’, ‘svg’ ),

        • Thanks Kevin and Piet for the alternative approach!

  8. oh wow. I didn’t know how you can do this by manipulating svg’s but that’s cool. I like to try it out sometime.

  9. Excellent Info I never though that some code are work like this i just start learning css and JavaScript and after watching your post i feel amazing thank for sharing this Hope to see some more good stuffs from you in future.

  10. Very cool! =D

    • We use a custom theme.

  12. Excellent! Thank you!

  13. Thanks Tom!

  14. This is awesome and thank you for posting this! It makes me think about where we can potentially take logos, a company’s design, branding, and marketing message, and then implement the design on a website. Time will tell!

  15. Thank you for Nice post…

  16. I first heard about using SVG files from Seanwes. Definitely something I’m interested in utilizing in the future.

  17. Do this SVG perform good on GTMatrix Check?

    • Hello! I’m not too sure what you mean? Could you rephrase your question please?
