GIF Picture Thumbnails


Mary Hartman

I turned on 'thumbnail views' and found that a number of .gif files did not render in the post they're in. If you find a picture in a thread which shows up as a 'placeholder' box instead of a picture, please use the Report This Thread link on that post so that I can fix it.

Please also use this thread to discuss or to let me know of any you find.

Testing Feature

Testing .gif attachment with animated gif. 49.3k in size.

Does not appear to work with animated .gifs in thumbnail view...
Just a black box.

Lets try somethinge else... Appears to work with a standard .jpg.

Fully vaccinated are you?
I've only noticed it with gif files, but I don't know why yet. I checked the permissions and mime types for gifs and rebuilt the thumbnail database, so I'm at a loss.

Not a big deal, right now, because you can click the image box and the image comes up in a new window (or does for me).

I am looking into what the cause may be.

Well, right now there are a lot of things happening. The folks from vB came to troubleshoot (My many thanks to Freddie) and when I saw he was gone (or appeared to be) I shut down the forums (there was no one 'online' that I could see but me) I 'upgraded' to beta v4.

If Freddie (from vB) changes something, I assume he'll let me know. Right now I'm as blind as you as to exactly what is happening.

Whatever Freddie did, it appears he fixed the problem.

I have to admit I REALLY like this feature of this version of the software!

Not being funny here. Don't gif files usually animate? :eek: :smokin:
Most currently used .gifs are animated now a days.
Gifs pre-date .jpg but are less compress and can use less colors.
