Default How do you get .gif's to work?

My avatar is a .gif file but it's not actually moving. :/ I uploaded the file from my computer.

How do you get .gif's to work on this site?

IIRC you can't get animated gifs in any form on here. My first avatar was animated and didn't play at all.

Then how do you explain Andy's (Keep It Simple's) avatar- maybe you need to be a platinum member to get them to work? ; )

Erik,
can you copy the link into a shared folder? If so, please send me a PM with the respective link, I'd update your user account, this might work.
I have no experience with those moving avatars but I'd give it a try, using a link from a shared folder. Might work.

I could never get any of my old gifs to work on here, But a couple newer ones did. Maybe it's not compatible with the website's Operating platform. IDK, but that's my experience...I'm not sure what it is about the older ones that make them incompatible and unable to move.

As you can see my avatar.gif {bernhard) works.

I make the animated gif with Photoshop, but of course there are other free programs for Mac and Windows.

When the gif is done you can check it easily when you drag the file from the dektop into a browser like Safari, Firefox, Explorer. When it works there -then it works also in our Forum - nothing Forum related with this.

Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 100 by 120 pixels or 293.0 KB (whichever is smaller).

Bernhard

You need to host the .gif on a storage site- it won't work just uploading it to DW. I keep mine on photobucket, and then use the upl;oad code from there.
