Have discovered all of my animations are no longer functioning. What would be causing this?

Hi MM,

I just had a look at your mrsmuddled.com site. The animations seem to be working for me okay - at least the ones (3) that I came across. There is a character taking a golf swing, police car with lights going, and the Canadian flag flying.

they are .gif files that I've used for years. For some reason they are not animating when I insert them into a doc or whatever.

When I go to my personal website they appear to be working and yet I can't get them to work on my screen as I type a doc.

I see them animated here when i click on them.

When you say "doc" do you mean a word document?

When you say "doc" I assume you mean MS Office or one of its components? If this is the case, support for animated gifs was removed a few years ago when they replaced IE for rendering certian objects in Office.

This is a good example. That librarian gif moves on one of my wordpress pages ... doesn't here.

If you see the animation in a graphics program or with your browser there is nothing wrong with them. If they aren't displaying in other applications then those applications don't support animated gifs.
