Not sure posted in right section, but I just made the coolest animated GIF for my avater here and want to see it in action biggrin.gif

But how to upload the GIF for my avatar?

I tried publishing the GIF in a folder on my personal website and posting the link in the avatar management part of the control panel, but nothing comes up (actually, a frame with a red cross is briefly seen, but then goes away).

Can anybody help me?

Hmm, a quick look shows that there is no image at http://www.tinauhrsk.../egowalking.gif - double check the file location smile.gif

You're right! I forgot to check and see if I had placed the file correctly in my website folder.


Ah, well, now I got publicity for both my avatar and the website (it belongs to my fiancee, by the way). Could be worse biggrin.gif

I didn't get it, did I spell something wrong and not even know it?

 

Anyway, now my avatar is standing still! Why isn't it animated when it's an animated GIF I've uploaded?

I think this time it's an issue with the forum coding/new upgrade :( Gimme some time to look into it.

When you click on the avatar and get in the member's profile, the gif plays fine, as far as I saw. *shrug*

The avatars shown are new rendered thumbs of the files uploaded. It forces a square image. It does not animate because it is not an animated gif.

I've noticed my avatar, which is an animated gif, is not animated on the forums any longer either.  Might be time for me to find a new avatar, or maybe just a larger static image of the same one.

Well, lets hope that'll be fixed someday. I can't imagine that making very many people happy!

Nanuaraq, try uploading your avatar again.  I did a bit of googling and found out that animated avatars are disabled by default with the new forums.  I found the setting that's supposed to enable things to animate properly throughout the forums and switched it on.  The only thing needed now is re-uploading the avatar. :)
 

Allow animated GIFs in photo thumbs?      [x] Yes          [_] No

 

If enabled, uploaded animated gifs will animate in the mini thumb on the board index and next to a post.

Profile page photos always animate. If you change this setting, it will only apply to future uploaded images.

Might as well add that that's apparently going to be my last admin move.  Logged in today and no longer have any admin access.  Ah well.
