    Gif question.

    I use a year old iPad and I’ve used gifs onsite in the past but nothing I try will post a gif now. My question is what am I doing wrong? Thanks!

    You are doing a great job, thank you :hi:

    1. I can't think why off hand. I mean the smileys are little GIFs

    Why not save one of your GIFs as a jpeg and see if that makes a difference. Just a shot in the dark.

    3. pehaps

    It’s because it is because the effort is being made via an Apple product?

     

    Ahhch… I just had to snark ?. To each their own! Eh?

     

    Anything apple has always been way over my budget, so I couldn’t even begin to help with apple related issues. So…. I’ll just go now.

      4. Snark away, we are less than happy with the direction they're going.

      I think it’s the iPad and this website because my laptop (which I use as a desk computer hooked to a monitor etc.) has no problem and it’s an old Apple. Just my take on it. I will avoid windows until it’s impossible not to, thanks anyway.

      ?

        5. Ha! you are so right

        I wasn’t even thinking about PC OS’s. I will never go beyond the xp64 I still have no reason to leave, on my systems. I am interested in having a dual boot with Linux mint hopefully soon, though.

        I was snarking more about the cheapo practical Android I-whatever comparison. And just to keep the conversation lively ??

          6. Yeah, yeah….

          If I could afford a new MacBook I wouldn’t be dealing with this iPad…truth!

    7. JPR and my iPad do not get along. I cannot post a gif, but I can post a smiley.

    I am juggling several different web browsers. I have to switch browsers frequently in order to sign in, reply, post a new topic etc. One browser will work for awhile, and then quit working. I have to switch back and forth even more when JPR has heavy traffic. Often I can’t reply, or I can only post in the title. I am frequently kicked off the site, and then unable to sign back in. And during periods of high traffic, there is a three or four second delay between a keystroke and the letter appearing on the screen.

      9. Why yes, yes it is…the gifs I haven't been able to use are more involved than

      that.. a friend offered to work with me on it but I haven’t gotten back to him with it. For instance if I go to giphy and choose a gif…such as this one

      http://giphy.com/gifs/jfk-GDx4qy4uhSfK

      How do I post it here?
