My GIF logo won't loop forever

Recommended Posts

I know my GIF loops forever locally, I created it to loop forever, but when I upload it to Squarespace, it works, but it won't loop. I tried it in my header as my logo and in an image block and it acts the same. I am using the Motto template and I'm still in my trial period.

Can this be changed with custom code?

I also stumbled into this issue.

The solution (for me) was to make sure that every time I 'exported for web' from photoshop the "Loop forever" checkbox was checked.

If it is saved and unchecked it will loop forever in preview or possibly other websites however my guess is that Squarespace assumes the Gif will be hardwired to loop.

Hope this helps.
