It's not urgent but I was wanting to put a gif in one of my posts, and while it's uploading it works, but whenever I post it it just shows up as a still image, and it's kinda bugging me.

It's not urgent, but any help would be appreciated. :)

Oops. wrong forum.

Hang on I'll have it moved to the "Editing & Tools board".

Sorry about that.

Open the image in a new tab and drag it from that tab into the text box

I see. I was opening up a gif I had on my computer with my browser and trying to drag it. But I guess it has to be from a URL.

@space_coyote: Well, if you have it on your pc you can upload it just by clicking here and then selecting it.

Used to be able to upload gifs straight from the desktop or by URL, like any regular image. But now it doesn't seem to work

Drag and drop doesn't work for me. I don't understand how to do it. Do I highlight the image? Right click, left click? The image doesn't move. Just fix the URL! Its so frustrating!

@banthabot:

This is how I am doing it.

No Caption Provided

I start off with both tabs open. make sure I'm editing a post.

Then I open the gif tab

I click and hold, dragging it.

I drag it over the comicvine tab and keep holding, which will switch the tabs automatically

I then continue dragging it towards the post over the position/line i want it.

Success!
