I'm having a difficult time posting animated GIFs.

 

When I post the URL of the animated GIF (for example, this one here:

 

http://images6.fanpo...588-250-300.gif, I copy and paste the URL into the little box that comes up when I click the "image" link above. 

 

http://pixpipeline.com/s/256ed28c50d2.jp...

 

Then I hit the "okay" button.

 

But what shows up is not the animated GIF, but a little box that looks like this:   http://pixpipeline.com/s/89df8a0758c0.jp...

 

What in the holy heck am I doing wrong?  Am I using the wrong icon to link to the animated GIF?  It seems like everyone else is able to post animated GIFs except me. 

 

Have you tried using the tag system? like so (without the spaces):

 

[ img] http://images6.fanpo...588-250-300.gif [ /img ] 

 

 

Also: are you using the same site each time to get the gifs? maybe there's just an issue with hot-linking from that site,

Okay, so I'm attempting to use the tag system you described, no spaces to place the animated GIF into the body of this post.  And I'm going to take a screenshot of it so you can see that it's properly done with no spaces:

 

mun-jung-hyuk-photo?ir=true

 

6b5da61a42bf.jpg

 

I'm going to hit the post button next to see what will happen.  Fingers crossed!

 

Okay, what happened is that the animated GIF doesn't post.  Only a fragment of the name of the GIF appears above.

 

When I hit the button to "edit" this post, instead of the fragment of the name, what appears in the white text box is that little white icon I screencapped in my last post.  There is no text or any fragment of the GIFs name, just that white icon. 

 

I have this problem with ANY animated GIF, not just the ones from this particular website.  Moderator, could you please try to post the animated GIF whose URL is in the post above just to see if you're having the same type of problem?  Because I cannot understand why I alone cannot post animated GIFs.

 

Moderator, another thing I just noticed is that the screencap got a lot smaller when I reloaded the page.  It was a full size and very easily readable (so you could see that I had correctly done what you asked) but now it's too small to read. 

 

Here's a link to the full sized screencap:

 

6b5da61a42bf.jpg

 

I'll gladly email you a copy of the screencap if this one has shrunk in size as well and is unreadable.

EDIT: WELP! It worked just now.  But when I refresh the page, I get the same broken image you got.  Yet when I click on the" Edit" button, I can see the gif (even now).  I tried; sorry I couldn't be of help.  :._.:

EDIT 2: You've already posted in the Ask A Mod thread, so you can be sure one of the mode will be able to help you. Alternatively, you can post in the Ask A Tech Admin thread, or send a PM to Sad (he's good with tech stuff).

You want me to take the URL for the animated GIF and then add the tags before and after without the asterisk in it?  I'll give that a try:

 

mun-jung-hyuk-photo?ir=true

 

If you tried to post this animated GIF yourself, you should know that it didn't come through.  I do not see the GIF.  All I see is a fragment of the name of the GIF, namely:

 

-mun-jung-hyuk-eric-mun-36000588-250-300

 

I see your addendum.  You are experiencing the same problem I have been; I briefly see the animated GIF working and then a broken image link.  However, this time I didn't even see the animated GIF at all, just a broken image link.

 

I appreciate your help but who can I contact to get further help with this issue?

The problem lies with the site you were trying to hotlink from. I did a Google image search of the gif, found it in another site, copied the URL, added [*img] URL [*/img] (without the space or the *), and voilà!

Thank you very much for your help! 

 

I've been having problems posting GIFs since joining onehallyu and I gave up trying, but I just came across a treasure trove of them at this fanpop website and decided I was going to finally tackle my problem.   

 

Could you tell me what website you found the above GIF that you were able to successfully post?

Glad to be of help :smile:
I'm afraid I don't know which website I took the gif from (I'm now on my mobile phone, so can't check). Like I said earlier, I just did a google image search of the gif and copied the url of the first image that did not come from that fanpop website :hurr:

The same gif can usually be found on several different sites vi a google image search, so if a gif from one site doesn't work for whatever reason, just get the same gif from another site. Alternatively, if you have an imgur account, you can save the gif in imgur, then post the gif from your imgur account; that'll work as well.

I think identical items are grouped together, so they won't show as separate items :( so your 7 lightsticks would appear as 1

Is it possible to follow/subscribe to a tag? For example, I follow the SHINee thread but can I also follow the 'SHINee' tag so I get updates to any threads that are made using the SHINee tag...?

 

Thank you!
