Solved how do I make my Forum main logo a slideshow

Post by wileycatpp on August 13th 2012, 2:15 pm

Hello,
Have been trying to add a slideshow to my forum in the forum main logo area. It will not show up. Is there something special that needs to be done to get it to work?

Our site is: http://www.ouatchat.com/

we used flash sildeshow maker to make the slide show and it gave us an html url but when we tried copying it to our forum main logo area it would not come up?
We have also tried using other sites to make slideshow however it still will not work.

I also tried to make a slide show in photobucket but none of the codes I copied from there would show up.

Please let me know if there is a way to make our forum main logo a slideshow or is this something that can't be done.

I was able to make the slideshow show up on my side bar in a widget but I want it for our logo pic and can't make it work.

Thank you

Hi All still need help with this one would appriciate an answer even if its it can't be done. For now I have removed the logo pic and placed the pics in the announcement so they scroll across the screen. It works for now except that every once in a while the announcement screen goes blank and have to refresh in order to see also some people have said they cant see the pics.

Any way Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.

Why not use a animated banner in .gif format?

Lunapic.com is the place I use to animate images;
Just click on + Add more images for Animations or Collages and upload the images and (unless you choose otherwise) it should automatically animate them.

I tried using lunapic however it only allowed me to choose 2 pictures to transition with back and forth. I have 13 Collage pictures right now and i want to be able to show all of them one after the other on a loop. Also I did do an animated pic using just 2 of my pics and saved it as a gif but when I uploaded it to our forum in the main logo area it uploaded as a jpeg file. I'm assuming operator error but for the life of me can't figure out how I messed that up.

Just So i'm clear, If I want to have my logo pic show up as an animated slideshow/banner or whatever it has to be in GIF format correct?

So if anyone knows of another site that would help me make an animated slideshow/banner that allows me to use more then 2 pics at a time I would greatly appricate it.

Thank you very much Sanket and lilyheart7 for the responses.

Hi again I found a site called gifup.com I was able to load 9 of my pics create a slideshow animated GIF file and add it as my logo/main pic. When you create it you have to copy the BB code and paste it in minus the [img] at the beginning and ending of the code once you paste it in.

Question answered thank you
