GIF thumbnail not working Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Hello Everyone!
On my YPPedia page I display avatars that have been made for me.
But for some reason, some GIF's do work and others not at all.
Is there anyone who can help me?

It's the automatic thumbnail image (which is the preview displayed in a Mediawiki gallery) creating software used by YPPedia which doesn't seem to work reliably when the input image is GIF. I'm wondering if it's a particular GIF version format which causes the issue?

I tried uploading a copy of a previously uploaded GIF image which successfully had a thumbnail image created automatically. Now the particular GIF image does not get its thumbnail created, so I do not believe it's the GIF version format which is the problem. Instead something may not be configured properly with the YPPedia thumbnail creating software.

They are probably too busy with other things than just a picture not looking right on YPPedia. Can't really blame them.
