How do you upload gifs to the site?

Question

Title pretty much says it all. I'm a scrub I know!

When I post a direct link of a picture from imgur, it shows up. But if I try to do a gif its just a link?

It's the gifv format that's the problem. It's really a video file.

Find it elsewhere just as a gif, or use one of the conversion sites.

@JorDogg Sorry I had patients arrive so I just slapped a gif in there to see if it worked how I've done it before.

On the gif I want I right click and copy "image location", then on the right side of the text/reply box you should see the grey 
"Insert other media" button. Select "Insert image from URL" , and paste the copied image location in and then click the "insert to post" button.

Is that how you insert a picture normally on here? It's just the way I've done it in this forum and seems to work for Gifs to.

Not all gifs work though due to format or site it's from, and even some images don't work due to the site its from. The Forum must have some blacklist on some sites I think, but it was the same on the nzgamer.com forum too in terms of that..

Hope that helps...

Edit:  Sorry just looked now at the gif link you put, yeah like Sassy says it's the format that's the problem

Yeah it works...

Not for you though obviously  lol  What are you doing?

Are you clicking the Insert other media button then Insert image from URL??  Or are you just dropping the link into the text chat box?

You're not doing this from mobile are you? it wont have that option.

Edit: Jor changed the above post and got it to work... god save us from his gifs and memes, have mercy.. lol
