4.4: Animated GIFs

Recommended Posts

Communication has come a long way since those very early humans grunted at each other to determine if they wanted more mammoth for lunch.

The course of human history has seen cave paintings, hieroglyphics, the written word, emoji and now GIFs.

GIFs have been around since the dawn of the internet. Many websites proudly displayed a 'man at work' animated GIF when they were under construction.

Now, GIFs are now mostly used to express complex thoughts and emotions by showing a short animation.

Mind Blown

 

Invision Community has allowed GIPHY to be used as an embed for a while now, but we craved something much more straightforward.

Behold, the GIF button!

Now your members can reply with the majesty of animation.

Of course, GIFs won't replace real and meaningful conversation, but they are a fun way to express yourself quickly and encourage more engagement.

The GIPHY functionality is enabled via the 'Community Enhancements' page in the Admin CP.

GIPHY is enabled from the enhancements page

All you need to do is grab a key from GIPHY, and you're all set!

Configuration

You'll notice a "MPAA style rating" option.

This allows you to select a maximum rating for the GIFs as some will have adult themes and language that may not be suitable for your community.

For example, you can choose "G" for general audiences, "PG" or "PG-13" to limit what is shown.
