Adding a GIF.

Is adding a GIF treated the same as adding a pic in the Drag and Drop File Upload section? Seems I can do a pic but not a GIF. Any settings need to be changed/set, or is there a step I'm missing? Thanks.

Re: Adding a GIF.

Can you try adding the gif using the advanced editor and not drag and drop? It could be an issue with the filetype in general and I'd like to rule it out

Re: Adding a GIF.

Clicked on MANAGE ATTACHMENTS below and browsed to the file on my files. Uploaded a test file "GIF test" and only found a pic.

My first shot at loading a gif. I'll get it eventually.

OK Doug...you can officially call me a DUMMY. I still can't figure it out. I have a great GIF I want to attach to certain post, (wink, wink). It's loaded on my computer, but lost on how to get it from there to here. You mentioned properties, I get what needs to happen, but don't see properties to add the IMG string.

Is it or can it be hosted on-line ?
Yes ?
Right click on the gif, on line, copy the properties.
Link it here with the img tags.

OK, did a quick test.


IF its on your computer, you can click on the GO ADVANCED tab below post box.
Use the paperclip to add attachment.
It wont act as a .gif until it's clicked on or someone puts their pointer on the pic/gif to open it in another page.

Found the GIF online...no properties indicated. I did upload to my computer.



Did your bottom suggestion first go around and came up with just the .jpg, and the last one shown is the same.



Had to go to CLASSIC to find GO ADVANCE...but even in that mode I was still getting the same deal, a .jpg when I clicked on MANAGE ATTACHMENTS in FULL version. Actually FULL version gets you to the browse attachment minus a step.


This is SUPPOSED to be fairly easy, your explanation is correct, but damn if I can get it. Pretty damn sure I had done this on another site years ago and it worked.
