this is a very quite basic question I know, but I'm feeling pretty dumb today and don't see how to do it !

I simply want to insert my boot animation into my posting as Dr.Romca does here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=862963

I have created an amimated gif, but when I goto 'insert image' in the editor it asks for the url of the image ...
but only then inserts the url itself and not the gif, and adding it as an attachment is no good either

Is the URL to a .gif image?


EDIT: Works fine for me!

thank you,
I obviously did not have my brain in gear but the penny has now dropped !
my url was to a gif, and when I previewed it before posting naturally only the url itself was shown.

@Asovse1
I must be losing my marbles mate !

I have just done my post:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...6#post21048666

but as you can see I just get the url again. I used 'insert image' when typing my post.
why on earth am I missing something simple and being so stupid ?

Try manually typing in

When in doubt, do it manually.
