      Donna Hi everyone!

      I also prefer to disable animated due to epilepsy concerns for some of my members on my own site. I'll add a feature request for our team to look at this.

      Stepan Would there be a possibility to have GIF images activate on hover? For example have a static image displayed and only animate it when a user hovers over it? I have seen it on some social website forgot which. Not sure if this will require a separate static jpeg or if you can stop gif from animating and only load the first frame.

      Gabry I think is good to have the GIF support on the website for example maybe you want to comment on a video,photo or music with an animated image or you want to send a private message containing an animated image or you have a plugin like gifts using animated image.... but will be very good to have an option to disable the GIF for profile pictures .. thank you very much to all for reply's.

      Eugene It's a good practice to set redirect to non-www version (or to www version). Make sure that only one domain version is actively used. There might be multiple problems if you use both version at the same time, for example, if you logged in www domain you won't have the same session in non-www. And if you set Facebook/Linkedin login they wll threat www and non-www as 2 different websites. That mean there might be issues with redirects after the login.

      Donna Good question. I use a redirect to send all to my non-www url. I have google set up to use the non-www as well.

      However, looking at this article, http://www.themezilla.com/should-you-use-www-in-your-url-or-not/ if I want to future proof my sites, I need to change to www as the non-www can mess up caching and static content on active sites.

      Thanks for posting this topic! It will be interesting to see other feedback.

    Will the GIF's feature be a headache ?
    Hello everyone, i will like to have an opinion about the new profile image GIF support.
    Imagine that you have on your website 100 active users day by day and all of them having animated image for profile picture.
    For example if you will access member home page where you can have the widgets with new,popular,online users and also the Wall , i think it will be a big headache to look on that page with all those images moving in there.
    Don't you think that will be nice to have an option in Admin CP to disable using GIF's for profile picture if we wish ?
    I have made a test only with 4 users and few test posts from all and already my eyes ware tired to look on the page and is quite annoying.

    Thank you and please give an advice, have a nice day to all !

    Redirect to "www" or not ?
    Hello, i have noticed that sometimes the website works different if is
    or not redirected to use www , for example a plugin can give error or
    not working properly if the website is not loading with www.
    What is your opinion about redirect, is good to insert in .htaccess the redirect code and use www.site.com or site.com ?
