    There seems to be an issue with Imgur GIFs.

    When you embed a GIF, it doesn't appear anymore in threads on dawgshed (Firefox/Safari).
    I also checked out older threads...the Imgur GIFs are gone.



    Here's an Imgur GIF...can you see it?

    It's not possible to embed it here on the forum anymore.

    All the Imgur GIFs have disappeared...that really sucks.

    I was hoping you would figure out that what you are trting to embed is not a gif file its a small video. Imgur started doing that with large files sometime back.

    .gifv is not the same as .gif

    I'm aware that Imgur GIFs are .gifv files. But embedding Imgur .gifv files has never been a problem here on the forum until recently.

    It was suddenly not possible anymore to embed files.

    Not only is it not possible anymore, but all Imgur GIFvs in older posts have disappeared.

    There was an upgrade today that allows the imgur videos. Nice

    It worked for me before but not working now. I never know what link to copy so I've tried all of them & I still get the little img box thingy that shows up instead.
