Anybody else just seeing blank posts at times instead of the GIF? Noticed it quite a bit in the US Politics thread, seems to be happening for me in this thread as well.
GIFs often fail to appear on iPhones using Safari. Happens to me, too.
@ISMF1 is aware of the problem and trying to get it rectified.
On occasion my reply “freezes” when I try to add a gif, in that case I need to close the page and reply again. The good thing is that whatever I previously typed is still there. Happens to me on iPad.
Yes it was was a problem caused by Apple updates.
I have updated some code which will help some users but perhaps not all.
Let me know if it’s working better
The post I am quoting, I don’t see the gif in the original post. I am seeing this in a few posts, and I know something is there as the is a block of white space.
EDIT: I dont even see the gif in the quote (iPad).
Yes it’s to do with Safari.
Apple created a bug with IMG tag on iOS 14. This caused no GIFs to be displayed (like on iPad).
The semifixed the bug with 14.0.1, which I think is what is creating white space on your iPhone.
At the moment the only fix is not to use Safari. It should work with other browsers
