  • Hi. I saw this on a wiki but I couldn't find it again, on their main page they had the chatbox and it was animated. I thought that was pretty neat so I would like to do the same thing, where would I add the .GIF to?

    • Could you be more specific? What do you mean by animated? What was animated? Would it be possible to find the wiki by browsing through your browser's history (a link to the example would be best)?

    • I did try to find the community but I was browsing through a lot of different wikis and for the life of me I could not find it again.

      What I meant by animated, on their chatbox, where it says "Live! Chat" "Join the chat", they had a gif playing of static anime characters flickering by, or something to that effect. I don't know how to customize these sort of pages since I don't know the MediaWiki pages.

    • My guess is they probably used CSS to put an animated GIF as the background. Probably something along the lines of:

      .WikiaRail .chat-module {
          background-image: url("<image URL>");
          background-size: cover;
      }
