Animated gifs not uploading properly in 18.104.22.168
Have you tried other gif files from around the internet just as a test?
But I am mystified. I have no problems uploading and using animated gifs in an old install of 5.6 but have no luck with 5.7. With 5.6, one could add a Content block and then drag and drop an animated gif file directly from one's desktop into the block without even first loading it into File Manager and it would work great! Nothing seems to work with 5.7.
Yes, I have gif listed in upload permissions.
ADDENDUM: I am having success with an old install of 5.7.4. I suspect that the problem lies with 5.7.5. Must be a bug with 5.7.5.
But then I had a Eureka moment! I remember that I had recently checked a box (in accordance with advice on some video) in the Dashboard that had something to do with limiting the size of uploadable images. It's in the dashboard:
System and Settings/Files/Image Uploading/Image Resizing.
I unchecked that box, and now all is well.
Thanks for your patience.
