Animated GIFs no longer working

    I went away from my blog for a while, but when I came back I found that GIFs would no longer properly upload. I’m not doing anything different than last time; my basic steps are to find the GIF URL, click “add media” on a new post, paste the URL, click the “center” button, then click done. When I preview the post it appears fine, but after I publish it the GIF is always broken. Any ideas on why this may be happening? I’ve tried all all size GIFs, and my website is pretty pointless if this doesn’t work. None of the other gif-related posts on the support forum seem to help, either.

    Thanks for any advice you can provide!

    The blog I need help with is uvalawkward.wordpress.com.

    UPDATE: Oddly enough, the posts work when I post them as private, but fail when I change it to public. Obviously that is no use to me, but I thought it might be helpful to some troubleshooters out there. I am utterly mystified right now.

    FIXED! I figured out that after posting, the “format” option on the side changes from “standard” to “image.” Flip the option back to “standard,” hit Update, and it should work!
