    Can I include animated gif in website builder page section?

    I have included the following code in an HTML section to display an animated gif in the Website Builder development site.

     

    <img class="block" id="u12287_img" src="https://www.MYSITE.COM/images/ANIMATED.gif" alt="Animated graphic" title="Animated graphic" width="350" height="350
    "/>

     

    I get this to work by referencing the animated gif in the images directory of my live site. Will I be able to add this gif to the images directory once the Website Builder is live? 

     

    I would prefer a more straightforward way to insert an animated gif.

    Unfortunately, you can upload a GIF, but it basically converts it to a JPG. I love adding GIFs to my web designs, so I feel your pain. It would be pretty nice to be able to upload them and have them work.

    Do you have to pay for this feature if I upgrade? I remember that I could add this feature before GoDaddy switch to this new platform. 

    Hi @Lee15,

     

    Welcome to the Community!

    No, upgrading to a higher plan will not alter the image formats that are allowed on the Websites+Marketing plan. While it's inherent in the new platform, there are always changes being made - that my someday allow for the animated gif.
