ReplyGif: Adding reaction GIF easily

You need to follow the proxy instructions.

There is a section on the README regarding HTTPS.

TL;DR proxy configuration there, but doesn’t solve problem, as non-proxy links still fetched.


I inspected the server, and it is configured as per your instructions. I went into the container itself to inspect the discourse.conf and found that the proxy pass was appropriately setup.

Using Chromium developer tools (Network), I do see queries going through the proxy, e.g. It returns a JSON, with URLs like

Afterward, network connection from my client brower, will request thumbnails, such as This then obviously will fail, because CSP will block mixed content (http + https).

I do not know how the ember.js application works, but deducing from the network traffic, it looks like there are queries to get a JSON back with Image URLs which are later fetched for the thumbnails, but those image links themselves won’t work, and proxypass won’t fix this.

To solve this, it looks like the ember app itself would have to be configured to rewrite these URL references to match the same referenced URL through the proxy, e.g.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

Doesn’t seem there is much I can do about that. As it looks like replygif still does not support HTTPS.


I’m a noob at this stuff, is there a step-by-step guide to set up a reverse proxy for this plugin?

Secure site, hosted with digitalocean, if that helps.

Yes, the readme walks you through the steps. Even has the wget command to put the template in the right location, then its a matter of updating your app.yml to use the template.


@cpradio Hey buddy - thanks for all your work with the animated gif plugin. Things seem to be operational, but I get the following error when I’m trying to use the tag search.

Uncaught TypeError: c.template is not a function

Do you have some ideas to help troubleshoot? Hope you’re staying safe right now!

This is now fixed, update via the admin tool and it will work.

As per instruction this is setup for you.

Details: The discourse container has nginx running inside of it and configured. Nginx is the web server has capability to do reverse proxy. The instructions document using a template ( templates/web.replygif.template.yml), which carries the reverse proxy snippet that discourse’s automation will use to reconfigure nginx settings. Once you rebuild the server, the automation will be applied and you get the reverse proxy.

I finally figured out what to do with:

wget -O /var/discourse/templates/web.replygif.template.yml

that was my hangup.

Thanks for the help @Joaquin_Menchacha & @cpradio

If you are using Giphy, then this isn’t the right topic. This is for ReplyGif. Seems whoever forked it for giphy hasn’t updated it in a few years and the font-awesome reference they have is no longer supported.


Oh i’m sorry, thank you. :slight_smile:

@PaulinaMX, I have updated the giphy plugin to fix it. You will need to update your app.yml to point to the new repository location until the owner takes my changes.


Thanks, i’m going to try this.

@cpradio Thank you :heart: It’s working now.


I just set this up, but I only see “Loading… Loading…” in the modal. I thought I had done something wrong with setting up the reverse proxy, but I wen’t to and it looks like the api isn’t working their either.

Just wanted to do a sanity check it see if it was just me or if is down?


Not the same thing, but there is a theme component in the same area using Giphy that may be useful for you: Discourse Gifs component


oh, I had installed the giphy plugin, but the theme component is even better. I didn’t know that was a thing, thanks!


Is it always working with last version of Discourse ?

If yes i will test it. i can translate it to french too if needed.
