    Hi, I have http://www.geometrywars.wordpress.com and made a .Gif file from Photoshop to put in place of the original banner. I have uploaded it, but it doesn’t move (a .Gif is a moving file). So my question is, does WordPress allow .Gif’s in their banners? and before you ask, yes it is a working .Gif, I have tried it at other sites.
    Thanks alot,
    JTM

    I would suggest a feedback asking them about this. I can’t see animated *.gifs here and I’ve not been able to get an answer out of staff on it.

    Actually, a .gif file is just another format. The fact that it can be animated is a bonus.

    As for the banner, there are a few people that have tried and failed, one in another thread recently.

    i have tried to upload a gif file into the body of one of my posts but it doesn’t seem to animate once i add it and publish the post. Anyone know what else I need to do to get it to work?

    I’ve got an animated gif in the body of my blog now, and it works just fine. Also works in a sidebar widget. Can you post the URL of the gif so we can check it? Sometimes I’ve managed to save gifs that don’t seem to work, and I have to re-save it.

    Rain, are they hosted here in your wp.com space or elsewhere? The uploader may be stopping animations.
