Could be a D'OH question...

I want to add an animated photograph to my Geek profile but when it loads it's not animated anymore. Does that mean the image was too big and downsizing it made it inoperable and, if so, how can I make it small enough to make it fit and still work?

Re: Could be a D'OH question...

What I do is I go to my Geek profile and then click on edit and go down to signature put the HTML in their and then when you comment on someone it will be on their already. Just do it for that comment if you only want the Animated photograph on that comment. then go back to your geek profile and delete it. It Works!!!

NOTE: If you are trying to upload it from URL it did not work for me either and make sure you click full HTML before submitting

If you are trying to do it for your Geek profile/Personal Info it does not work for me either maybe cause it does not have the Input format option and Full HTML option. Im not sure why it does not work.

I didn't think to do it that

I didn't think to do it that way... and I've been working on that for a bit now and I can't seem to get the final result I want. I went to  my signature edit, entered all the HTML tags with the photograph included and I can see it working but when I do a preview of my comment it doesn't show at all. ARGH!! In fact, I'll be curious to see how this will turn out when I send it. Probably a mess!

BTW, I wanted you to know how helpful you have been to me in many areas on this website. Don't concern yourself with people who are only negative and bad-mouth you. They don't know what they're talking about.

This will do

Was hoping for the animated picture too since I can't seem to add it to my profile like another member I saw. I'll keep trying. I thank you so much for taking the time you took and for all the help IMPOSSIBLE007 gave me!

animated graphics in signature

mizwingzz, this is how i got mine to work in my signature.

1. in your account settings, choose edit. place your cursor in the signature box and hit enter a couple of times and then type in the url to your graphic using the usual "img src=" html wrapped with the arrows. save your settings. then when you click on the reply button to add a comment, you'll notice the url is already in the comment box.

2. type your comment as usual. then highlight the url for your signature graphic and right click and choose cut (or choose copy then delete the url).

3. then click on the "html" icon at the top of your comment box to the left of your smilies icon. that will open a popup box where you can edit the html. go to the end of your comment and hit enter a couple of times, however far down you want to place your graphic. then click on "update" to save the changes.

4. then click on "input format" and choose full html.  then preview your comment.  also, when you preview your comment, you'll notice the graphic won't be animated, but that's okay. it will be when you post it.

i hope that makes sense. i'm not the best at explaining things. lol! if you have any questions, i'll be happy to help you if i can. ;)

Signature image

(mr Geek here)
I think part of the problem is that the total length of the text in her signature + the URL of the image that she wanted was longer than the sigature-box allows, and it was being truncated...
..i think...

IMPOSSIBLE007 Are you mad at me???

I tried to explain what happened in my email to you last night.

I ended up just having to copy and paste the code into my comment every time I use it now. The signature was too big to add a picture too. The photograph alone worked, but I wanted the quote too. People offered help, and I took it. I didn't, in any way, mean to diss you, if that's what you think. You explained very clearly and I was still having trouble, but not because of you. It was because I wasn't clear about what I wanted, I guess. I thought I explained that to you.

Sorry for the mixup. You have always been a great help and I would never want you to feel like you didn't help at all. Forgive me?
