How do I display one .GIF image on desktop and an alternate version formatted for mobile use?

Recommended Posts

I have a .GIF image displayed at the top of the "Page Content" section, which looks great on desktop, however the image when it is displayed on mobile, it is far too small to view. I know that Squarespace sites are responsive, however, in this case I created a second custom .GIF image to better fit mobile use. What I am attempting to do is display one .GIF only on desktop and a separate .GIF only on mobile. The second .GIF formatted for mobile use is imported into Squarespace's "Custom Files" folder. I have some experience with coding but this exceeds my capabilities. This is the code that I have been working with, trying out different inputs in different places within the main "Custom CSS" window, and the "Advanced Page Settings CSS" window:

  @media only screen and (max-width: 640px) {

}

I am wondering if what I am trying to do is possible, and if not, am I able to make it so the first .GIF is displayed on desktop, and then is hidden on mobile?

Kindly paste this into design->Custom css

@media only screen and (max-width: 768px) {
    #block-yui_3_17_2_1_1607017561137_11291 .sqs-block-image-figure > div {
      padding-bottom: 20% !important;
      overflow: hidden;
      background: url(https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5d6037ded262bd00018f22f9/t/5fd90ed9d927c34ff5eb5c7e/1608060634352/Mobile+V1.gif);
      background-size: cover;
    }
    #block-yui_3_17_2_1_1607017561137_11291 .sqs-block-image-figure > div img {
      opacity: 0 !important;
    }
}

Aw thank you so much! This code worked like a charm. Follow up question, if I want to change the spacing and remove some of the negative space above and below the .gif, what do I add to the code to change that?
