.Gif files as profile pics?

(Codecademy ) #1

Does discourse support gifs? Is there anyway to have a GIF as a profile picture?

Yep, it’s supported. Go to your admin control panel -> Settings tab -> Files section, and then look for the “allow animated avatars” checkbox.

after doing that, do we need to ./launcher rebuild app ?

From the settings page:

WARNING: run the avatars:refresh rake task after changing this setting.

I dunno where and what to do about that, where do i type avatars:refresh rake ?

is it var/discourse/
or would it be
./launcher enter app ?

I’m not really an expert either. I googled “discourse rake task” and got this discussion, in which @zogstrip says this is how to run a rake task:

# ssh into server
cd /var/discourse
./launcher enter app
rake uploads:migrate_to_new_pattern

I presume that you would simply change that last line to rake avatars:refresh.
