    So I've tried to post animated gif's using the [IMG] tags, but when I try to post them via a link I nearly always find it says 'remote file too large' even when I'm copying a gif someone's already posted? When I find a really small gif and try to post it, under the preview it doesn't show it animated anymore, just a still image..? This same thing happens when I save a gif then upload it..

    Ah don't worry - sorted it, I had the 'retrieve remote file and reference locally' box ticked

    I believe you want this picture:

    so that's

    OR do what I do, which is right click copy image and right click paste on TSR

    Nice tip, use the 'noparse' tag instead of spaces or quotation marks:

    Quote to see how it's applied.
