Hey folks

I’m looking for a definitive guide to uploading GIFs.

I can see that they’re back but not sure what is the right way of doing it. Is it via a link? Is there a preferred place to get them? This CMS doesn’t seem to like Giphy. 

Thanks!

Hi,

yeah, I saw that you tried to post gifs from giphy here today - unfortunately working with gifs from giphy can be a bit… iffy (please excuse the pun).

Normally there is no guide needed - I would recommend to simply copy the gif and then paste it into the editor (instead of pasting the url only). But this might not work all the time:

I have written about this in this thread. Sometimes websites try to block gifs being used easily, and this might be the case here. It could be that the gif is not actually a gif, however I see your link is ending on .gif

I know some other platforms like Slack who natively will load the gif after posting the link. Maybe that is worth investigating it. I will have a look later today to see if I can find another way to get the gif you have used in a post.
