Uploading of gifs (Technics)

by smurfy ⌂, Friday, July 04, 2014, 18:36 (1176 days ago)

Sorry to be a pest, but does MLF allow the uploading of gifs as I have tried. Even though it allows me to upload the gif, it does not animate within the post...

Uploading of gifs

Hi,

thats right. The reason is the PHP imagecreatefromgif-function: When reading animated GIF files into memory, only the first frame is returned in the image resource pointer.

How can this problem be resolved, as it would be cool to have Gif's animate within posts... Not that I would know how to implement new coding if it could be remedied.

By the way, can I use HTML code in the signature box on profiles ?

Thanks Micha for your help.

A workaround would be to upload the gif to any of the many free image-sites and link to it between img-BBCodes. For an example see this post.

HTML-code is nowhere supported in mlf, but all implemented BBCodes can be used in the signature as well.

But why don't the MLF people make it so that you can upload Gifs and enable them to animate ? ... Is it that difficult to implement this in the MLF board ? Or are they just lazy :lol:

Thanks for you reply. :ok:

As I wrote, PHP does not support animated pictures. This is not a problem of the forum, it is a general problem which occurs if imagecreatefromgif is used. There are some workarounds. To use them, an additional library is required.

Thanks Micha, I get it. :ok:

I wonder if you can help with another problem. My forum title meta tags are showing the name of my forum first and then the title of the post last [forum name] - [post title]. How do I make it so that the post title shows first and then forum name last [post title] - [forum name].

Hi,

I'm not sure, but I think you can change that settings in your template-file main.tpl.

Hi Micha,
I just thought, the smilies are Gifs and they animate - I don't understand ???

Smilies are uploaded via FTP, aren't they? Thus, no PHP function was used.

As far as I know, the use of imagecopy-function has security reasons.

So how comes this Gif animates;

But this one does not ?

Hi,

maybe the second one was down scaled?
