    Default Posting "gifs" on E-I??

    I see there are embed options for images and for videos but, in the past, I've attempted to embed gifs, without success.

    Perhaps someone more proficient can instruct as to how to do this, or provide the code necessary?

    Here's an example of a gif, if you can manage to embed it.

    There are different ways but the following works for me every time.

    1. Get a local copy of the image or gif you want to include. If you found it on the web, usually right-clicking it and select Save Image will work.
    2. Go to imgur.com.
    3. On the home page select Upload Image, and then choose "Browse your computer". Select your gif and press "Start Upload".
    4. When the upload has finished go to the "Direct Link" box on the bottom right select it and copy it using ctrl-C.
    5. In your EI input screen click on the "Insert Image" icon. A screen pops up asking you to provide the image.
    6. Choose "From URL", and uncheck the box labelled "Retrieve remote file and reference locally". Do ctrl-V to paste your URL. Press OK.
    7. It should now be in your post and working - test it using Preview (Go advanced if necessary).

    Sounds fiddly but once you've done it once it is actually very quick.
