This forum is a Vanilla forum, and we USED TO use the Vanilla "rich editor*", however, it can be a little unclear how to use it initially. How do you use it?

*We have moved to using Markdown and a simple ribbon.

    @James Derrick , How did you get your GIFs to display properly? I have tried several methods, but they appear small and/or do not animate.

    @Landon Mitchell Kanner All fixed! It was a settings issue on the backend.

    NOTE

    We have recently switched away from the rich editor to the "Advanced Editor". This provides a simple editing ribbon above posts and should be more intuitive.

    Additionally, pure markdown can be used. The comments above are about the Rich Editor Only!
