Tried everything, couldn't figure it out.

Let me know if that doesn't answer it and I can try to help further

Hahahahaaaa, good one Glenn! I do love JJ.

But seriously, I tried the img tags (and all the rest of 'em) to no avail. Maybe I'm not grabbing the GIF links correctly :-k

I wonder if it's the 's' in https (secure). Will try s'more.

I did what the giphy site said, to tap and hold the button to copy the GIF, and that's the address it produced. Not workin for me.

The direct GIF link for that image is
https://media.giphy.com/media/MzS6pdMvnNGfK/giphy.gif

If you go to the link you posted above:
https://giphy.com/gifs/MzS6pdMvnNGfK?utm_source=me...6pdMvnNGfK

Click on "Copy Link" and then use the "GIF Link" they give you.

GIF image links here must end in .gif extension

The .gif link above inside [img][/img] tags

Testing.





Ok, I need help. Sorry. When I try to paste a gif that I copied, not the link, it says something like I'm blocked because the samba is protecting itself. Thanks

That site doesn't seem designed to actually show only the GIF - it's just a link to force it to show an entire page of stuff.
