Generated gif-macros are not animated
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When I add an imagemacro like this bellow on my instance of phabricator, the image is not animated. How can I fix this?

Hmm, I suspect its the libgd which is used by debian which has no gif support. Could that be a possible source?

Try installing imagemagick (the version in yum or apt-get or whatever should generally be fine), then enable files.enable-imagemagick in your Config.

Works like a charm.

Thanks a lot.

Cool. We'll fix up the docs on this at some point. Let us know if anything else comes up.

We have a hosted instance and seem to be running into the same issue. How do we get this going in this case? (Warning: we are new to phab!)

Just confirming this is broken for phacility hosted instances (it is for us at least) and that there is no work around to date? Should this be it's own issue? Or should we reopen this issue?
