Adding a Preloader Animation to a Jimdo Website

If your website has a lot of content or does not always load quickly, you may be worried about impatient visitors abandoning your website. One solution to this problem is adding a preloader animation that will quickly appear on your website while the content loads in the background.


This can be helpful for when someone first arrives at your website as well as when they jump from page to page. A preloader can provide an animation while they wait and then reveal the content all at once with a smooth dissolve effect.



This tutorial will help you add a simple preloader animation to any Jimdo website and it works in both desktop and mobile versions. See an example of the preloader on this website.

A simple animation can help visitors wait a bit longer for the content.
