RE: Gifs
Copy the link to the gif and put it into your profile, via the user cp with image tags.

Then you should be able to preview it to make sure it looks right.

I tried that though and it didn't seem to work.

It might be too big or not done correctly.

What's the link to the gif?

RE: Gifs
Show us the lines of code/tags that you tried to use; we'll probably see what's wrong right away.

Tutorial Time


Inside your User CP (control panel), you have a series of options. Along the left side you'll see a number of options, and the one you want is inside the Your Profile box, under Change Signature. Clicking on that takes you to a text edit interface that is otherwise identical to the one used to make a starndard post on the forum. So if you're familiar with the forum or BB code, it all applies. So your signature can be as simple as a line of text with a color and bold or italics (or both) applied, or it can even be an embedded image.

Embedding an image in a signature follows the same format as embedding one of the forum, with one important exception; signatures have a maximum allowable dimension. But the basics are the same, in that all you need is the direct URL link for the image. Once you have that URL, all you need to do is place it between the standard forum image brackets. Those are [img][/img]. I like using Google Image Search, then once I've found an image I like, I open that image in a new tab and just copy-paste the URL from the address box.

So in practice, it should look like this...

[img]insert image URL here[/img]

Or, if I were to use the URL for my signature, it would instead look like this.

So here's a homework assignment to test it our for yourself. Use Google Image search, and search for 'fluffy gif'. The second image from the left on the top row should look like this.

Now just make a post where the GIF shows up properly and you're done. It'll work exactly the same with your signature, just keep in mind the size limits.

RE: Gifs
One note that most seem to miss is that it has to be a direct link to image, if not it won't work.


Example:

http://postimg.org/image/miizhx0r1/ =

but
http://s6.postimg.org/miizhx0r1/france_flag_t9t2.jpg =
