Is there a way to prevent animated avatars?


Well-known member
I would like to prevent animated avatars from being able to be uploaded and used on my forum. Is there a setting that I have missed that prevents them?

There is no explicit setting. But if you use the GD image library then animations will not be supported on resizing which affects all but large avatars:

Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Attachments

Changing the image library is not retroactive to existing avatars though.
