I run into this problem as well, and I fixed it by simply npm install --build-from-source sharp, FYI.
Animated Profile Pictures
How do i add the ability to upload animated profile pictures to my forum???
Its actually frustrating me a lot because i feel like I've tried everything! I'm not getting any errors when uploading gifs, they just simply aren't animating.
Things i've tried:
- Installing the imagemagick plugin
- Installing imagemagick on the server itself
- Getting frustrated
- Checked and rechecked every damn setting on the admin panel
- Restarted and reloaded about a million times
You should be able to get gifs working by installing
Nope, no luck.
I'll add a list of things ive done already to my original post.
Hm... have you tried nodebb-plugin-imgur?
I believe this broke when the cropper module was added. It shows the animated gif while cropping but when you save the image is turned into a png
As the above implies, using 3rdparties image host services could help.
