If you want to post a gif then what you got to do is copy the image URL by right clicking on the image and clicking copy image URL. Then going onto the forums and on the sort of toolbar above where you write your text, there should be a image what looks like a photo of a tree. Click on that and paste the URL and your done ^_^

After you attach a file, there is an option to 'add to post' on the right. Just click that and it will go on the line that you are currently on in the post itself.

but then it says "attatched thumbnails" right above the image, and I don't want that.

 

SEE!

I don't have "copy image url" option.

 

is that a firefox thing only? I have internet explorer


there is no "copy image url" option when I right click.

I have internet explorer, is that the issue?

Actually for internet explorer, if you right click on the image and go down to the basic copy, you should be given the image url:

You can upload them by attaching a file saved on your compter, or paste them on by copying the image url by clicking on the little picture box in the text editor.

otaku, have you tried using my method by: right clicking the image you wish to use, going down and clicking copy, then using the insert image feature (the little tree icon 2W9rVoM.png) on the post toolbar to insert your gif?

It shouldn't be, copying the Image URL is a thing every browser should have.

 

 I just tested it out, you can do this action with Internet Explorer.

 

But this is your problem, Internet Explorer and MLP Forums don't mix very well, I'm afraid to say.

 

Why not try a different browser? ^^

Check the url you have obtained. The message I guess you could be receiving is a "You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community.". This might be because the link you have obtained is not a proper link that can be inserted. As far as I'm aware, only links that are in proper format for an image; ie end in .png, .jpeg, .gif, etc will work for a post. Links like this will not work.

Hi there @@otaku4242, were you able to find out the cause of your gifs not animating?

Also... Just to make sure. Are you sure that the image is a gif? and isn't just saved under the file type 'Gif'

Hey, @otaku4242.

 

Just letting you know, there's a FAQ article on how to post images and such located here.

 

Try out the walk through, and see if you're still having an issue with this.
