    Am I tripping y'all or is it extra hard to find a gif that will show up on the forum these days, I usually get that little box instead of the gif and I've tried almost every gif under the sun ......anyone else having this problem ?

    • Go to the Gif you want.
    • Right click on the image or Gif you want
    • Copy the Image address
    • Then come back to your post on LHCF
    • Click on the "mountain image" which is directly to the right of the smile (sorry about the wild arrow)

    • It will open and will be a an empty box entitled, "Image URL" with a space.
    • Paste the Image Address in that space.
    • Click "Insert"
    • Click on "Post Reply" as you usually to post something.
    • The Gif should appear.

    Also, whatever image you try to link in using the image's address . . . that image needs to have an address ending in something like
    .jpg,
    .png,
    .gif, etc.

    Sometimes when we try to copy the link address for an image, the link address that the internet provides us with does NOT END in a proper file type such as .jpg, .png, and .gif.

    I have found that if I right-click an image to copy its link address and it does NOT end in .jpg, .png, or .gif . . . then sometimes if I simply click on the image, it will take me to a proper link ending in .jpg, .png, or .gif.

    THEN I can right click the image again and get a link that will show up on the forum.

    I hope that helps.

    Most recently, I find that Google made some changes, and so the gifs that used to appear here aren't showing up. (I got [ IMG ] as well).
    Not sure why, but it maybe better to head to a bona fide gif site (like giphy) to lift gifs to use here.

    @ArrrBeee - I just inserted a gif :evilbanana:.Instead of doing it as usual by clicking on the photo of the mountain to insert the image like we did in the past, I just copied and paste. Try a new post and not editing an old post. When I tried to edit my old post with a gif it wouldn’t post but I was able to post my gif in a new post. Hope I’m making sense.

    When you right click on the gif, the phrase, "Image address comes up." Is that your question for me? Or, I'm I not understanding?
