It animates in the edit window but not in the published post itself. (I’m on Safari). If I click on it, it animates in the pop-up window. Do I need to do something differently? I’m hoping this is just a browser issue. Here’s the URL, it’s the picture of the meerkat. http://allthingsrobin.wordpress.com/2009/05/31/national-zoo/ Robin The blog I need help with is allthingsrobin.wordpress.com.

I’ve made this (http://michaelamaria.wordpress.com/2009/05/28/116-there-is-no-such-thing-in-life-as-normal) gif-animation at gickr.com, and placed it in my Mozilla Firefox browser. Works just fine! Try at gickr, place the “img”-textfield in your posts in another browser, not Safari. Good luck!

You need to create and upload a copy not exceeding the maximum width of the theme you’re using (500 px). June 1, 2009 at 12:58 am #368262 allthingsrobinMember panaghiotisadam, that did the trick. I didn’t know about the resizing thing. Thanks so much! Robin Author Posts The topic ‘Animated gif not animated’ is closed to new replies.
