Send GIPHY gifs in comments and chat. GIPHY is the best way to search, share, and discover GIFs on the Internet. Like other search engines, most of their content comes from indexing based on the best and most popular GIFs and search terms across the web.
Now the whole vast library of gifs is available to your community. Gifs from GIPHY can be added to comments under posts as well as shared via chat. It’s a great way to react to a post or a message.
How does it work?
Adding a gif from GIPHY to a comment or chat is pretty straightforward. Click the gif icon, search for any keywords of your choice, and GIPHY provides you with gifs that fit those terms. Just click the gif of your choice and you’re done.
Since GIPHY is a third party service, it needs an API key to work. We’ve been working with GIPHY and we’ve made sure that you don’t need to apply for the key; it’s filled in during installation and works with any domain name. You’ll be able to change it in the config section if GIPHY changes the API key.
