I'm wanting to add a blinkie to my signature, but my signature permissions say that GIF files are not allowed. I can get the pics to load but no movement. How can I change this to get animated GIFs?

That's odd...many of mine are gifs.

You can only add any images to your signature using the [IMG] code generated by photo hosting sites such as Photobucket - are you doing this?

Yeah I'm using the image code. I upload it to Flicker and it works just fine. There is just no movement when I transfer the codes here. I can get the pic just fine it just won't blink or anything like that.

OK. Where in your User CP or signature editor does it say that gifs are not allowed? I can't see anything in mine at all to try and locate the problem. May have to ask an admin about this but this would be useful to know. Also have you tried with different gifs so you know it's not just one that isn't compatible or something?

If you go to the User CP and click on Edit Signature then scroll all the way down to the bottom you see a box with the signature permissions. This is what mine says.

Allow Basic BB Code Yes
Allow Color BB Code Yes
Allow Size BB Code Yes
Allow Font BB Code Yes
Allow Alignment BB Code Yes
Allow List BB Code Yes
Allow Link BB Code Yes
Allow HTML No

Allow Image BB Code Yes
Allow Code BB Code Yes
Allow PHP BB Code No
Allow HTML BB Code Yes
Allow Quote BB Code Yes
Allow Smilies Yes
Can Upload Images for Signature No
Can Upload Animated GIF for Signature No

See the last one says no for uploading an animated GIF. I have tried several different ones, but I think my settings are just messed up somehow.

You can't upload anything directly to this site, that's what the last one says no for uploading an animated GIF. Can you post your code you are using here for me? And tell me exactly how you're placing it in your signature?

Thanks for helping out Trish. Aha so those settings ARE about not uploading direct to JM. Will be interested to see the final solution to this!

Sorry for all the trouble. I should have hit up Google first before freaking out that I screwed up my settings some how. I finally figured out that it was my Flicker acct that was giving me trouble. It wouldn't load the GIF files there. I changed to a different photo sharing site and now it works just fine. Thanks for all the help trying to figure this out. It was just me not doing my research.

Glad you figured it out! Will have to remember that in case it happens to someone else! I don't use Flickr so...
