    Same way you do an image, Zoom-boing. Right click, then select "copy URL" then come back to USMB, hit the yellow square, and insert addy.

    Sometimes, if you dun wait for the gif to animate before copying, it dun move in the post.

    You don't have to add it into a photobucket account?

    I will try one.

    always save it and load it to your personal account on e.g. photobucket.

    then it will work.

    Hmmm, I tried that with the above and it failed to load. I think it's the wrong format.

    Let me try again.

    Ok, is there a way to get a gif to upload to photo bucket if it's an invalid file type?

    Many gifs say to copy the following but it doesn't load into photo bucket and just shows up as code if I directly post it here.

    it is hotlinked, so i don't know if you see the gif or the "go to gifbin" place holder.

    Guys, you dun need photobucket. Go to google.com/images or bing.com/images and fetch the gif you want. Follow the instructions above, and when you return to USMB, as you are on "Reply to Thread", use the yellow box in the menu above.

    gifbin allows hotlinking...

    You have to include it in image tags...

    Code:
