GIF not working as avatar
« on: March 13, 2018, 09:38:15 AM »
I like my GIF avatars, but every once in a while I run into the issue where the GIF works on the editor I use, on Imgur, the Ewiki, and if I just direct link it from a place like Imgur into a post...but it won't work if I try to use it as an avatar. I haven't run into the issue in a long time and I can't remember how I fixed it the last time it happened, but yeah...



Can't get this one to work as an avatar.

Any ideas?

I was able to get it to work if I removed a couple of the frames.

Maybe too large a file size at first?

Strange. It wouldn't work when I directly linked it from your elluiki image, but it does if I upload it directly from my computer (save it first and upload).

Thank you though!

I usually do to. I edit it, save it, and then upload it directly from my computer. It worked when I saved and uploaded directly with Gypsy's image...but still not the direct link from the elluiki.

Odd.

If you remove the s from the https it usually works from a wiki link

I don't know why, but it does.
