    Source link to "How to Embed GFYCAT".

    Using the following code, one can embed GFYCAT gifs in posts:

    PHP:
    <script>
    (function(
    dt) {
        var 
    d.createElement(t),
            
    d.getElementsByTagName(t)[0];
        
    g.src 'http://assets.gfycat.com/js/gfyajax-0.517d.js';
        
    s.parentNode.insertBefore(gs);
    }(
    document'script'));
    </
    script>
    I'm no web developer, but this seems to work out okay. Would implementing this be possible in Xenforos?

    Is there any practical reason to use that beyond saving bandwidth?

    1. Xenforos customization practice.
    2. Understanding the physical limits of Xenforos customization.
    3. I like GIFs.
    4. I especially like HTML5 videos.

    from the thread title I thought it meant "Go F*** Yourself (Fire)CAT" tags
    maybe it was the two threads i read earlier

    Because I asked for [FIRECAT]-tags some posts ago. Now when somebody starts "can we have XYZ tags" I always see somethink silly instead of actually useful. And I have never heard of GFYCAT tags before, so I tried to make sense of the acronym.

    I still think that those Firecat tags should be a much higher priority than this jiffier gif thing.

    Yeah, but this GFYCAT tag includes actual Javascript code. Half of the work is done, the other half is the implementation. Or we could rename GFYCAT to FireCAT, and all is well.

    No we can't. Do not diminish the significance of the nonexistent FireCat tags with a god damn different cat.
