    To insert a .gif it must be housed somewhere on the web with a url (Do not use Photobucket).
    Direct file upload does not work for .gifs.

    NOTE** These are the same steps as found in the How to add a photo to your post guide.

    You can insert your .gif one of two ways...

    1. Copy Image/Paste
    • Right click on the image, copy image
    • Go to the forum post where you want to insert it
    • Right click, paste
    • The .gif should now be automatically inserted at full image size.

    2. Copy URL and insert with photo icon in the tool bar

    • Right click on the image, copy image address/url
    • Click on the spot in the forum post where you want to insert it
    • Click the photo icon in the tool bar (example is circled in yellow above)
    • Right click in the url line, paste the url
    • Click Insert
    • The image should be automatically inserted at full image size. If it isn't, choose Full Image... your .gif is now inserted into your post...
