It should work - I have seen sites using our official theme component successfully with animated gifs. Make sure that the allow animated thumbnails setting is enabled in your site settings. (it is enabled by default)
If it still doesn’t work, feel free to create a new #support topic here with the gif that doesn’t work.
Animated GIF’s are working on our site. I’m not sure what the issue was. Maybe it was something on my local device ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Thanks for looking into that!!
One more question. I just checked out the official discourse theme component and am wondering what the differences are between that Topic List Thumbnails Theme Component and this “Topic List Previews” plugin? Is one better or worse for certain situations?
@davidkingham@jord8on I’ve added the missing mobile plugin outlet to the TC that @fzngagan has kindly PR’d into Discourse core (cheers mate!), so you might find things are improved. I’ve not yet tested with the Events plugin though!
Let me know how you get on with Events plugin and the TC:
That’s personal choice. TLP has been around longer and in part that is why it is more feature rich (Thumbnail chooser, Featured Images, User Portfolio system, support for Suggested Topics), it has a slightly different Tiles format with more meta data, TLTTC has an additional view type (grid).
