As specified in the very first post of this thread, the call sign area is off limits now.
> OMG! The security update from April 1st has reduced my page to its simplest elements!
For the folks who e-mailed me wanting to see the April Fools Day page, I posted a photo link to it on my 'normal' page.
Thanks for the comments and thanks to QRZ for being such good sports.
QRZ User Support Center Case #263481
We received the following request from you:
Good morning, How can I get a .GIF animated file embeded in my QRZ web page? I uploaded the .GIF to my pictures, but when I look at the properties of the file on QRZ (in my pictures selection folder), it shows as it is now a .JPG. How do I get it uploaded correctly to QRZ as a .GIF? How do I embed it in my QRZ web page so that it will play. It works correctly otherwise. Thanks Ed WA6WGS
The support team sent the following message:
I'm sorry, I really can't help with page design stuff. My advice would be to upload a different gif. Or not upload a gif. Thanks for using QRZ.
73, The QRZ Support Team
Guess I posted the above in the wrong place. got a pretty lousy answer to the question, not even a referral to this post.
Just a simple question about uploading a animated GIF.
Does the way the GIF is made affect the upload to QRZ?
Yes, QRZ support animated images . But if you upload a too big file it divide it to each pictures and upload it. Your animated arrow upload fine , but when you try upload a big file with award gallery ( each picture 100+kB) - QRZ uploaded each image of award separate . Try reduce each image size and then generate again animated image . Before upload - look how many kB it will. The size over 1mB is hard to upload
That is exactly the information that I was looking for. The file is over that limit. So that must be the problem.
What the GIF contains is award certificates. Is there a way to compress a GIF?
I think no any way compress gif image. Really visitors can't adjust speed of animated image - much better using scrolling box (horizontal or vertical) - in this case visitors can stand by and read what your certificate about.
Look to examples of horizontal scrolling box - XX2C , ZL2WL (awards) , vertical - XX2BB - the visitors data on the right , same script for images etc.
What about now - red callsign - is it better?
Thanks Vlad, I will take a look.
Yes, much better! The red, non-italic callsign is way more attractive and easier to read.
Good afternoon, Vlad to ask after the changes from qrz to my page at the end are different watches from these countries do not work there is something to do this or go in another form;
