I will look into it...

Do you mean links or attachments?

Attachments .

They upload ok, but are displayed as static

Ok... So as attachments, animated GIFs will not work. That is a security function of the forum and I believe, there is now way around it.

Easiest method is to upload it to an image hosting site and use the HTML code to insert it into your post. There is a button, second from the left bottom row, that will insert the code. You just need to paste the link. Will look something like this:

Code: [Select]
