Has anyone used something else beside GIPHY?

Has anyone used things like imgur to have gifs into their sites?

I'm having issues with Giphy themselves with placement. They either want it Here (Green Arrow) or Here (Red Arrow) or Here (Yellow Arrow)

This is what they said:

Hi there,

We checked your application and noticed there's a placement issue.

You are using the asset at the bottom of the web page whereas we need it to be in the section where you're searching for GIFs - right below where you are displaying the GIF. 

I've been talking to them for 2 weeks now. And at this point I'm thinking of not having gifs on my site.

Has anyone else been having these issues or am I doing something wrong?

@arsalan I don't see that option. Is it included in 6.1? I'm still on 5.6.

@Christian you can find it in admin panel -> configure -> Giphy

Is that a gif button you're adding? I don't see one on my site. I have to find a gif, download it, and then upload. Kind of a PITA.

You can use their API without approval for testing purposes, but they want you to get it approved for production.
I tried about 4 times to get it approved and kept getting the same response (it's in plain text). Even after putting the image in the footer of my site....

So I'm hoping if anyone else comes across this issue, this will help them.

Really strange I used their API without requirement of any approval.

Finally got my API key approved from Giphy I needed to add their powered by giphy logo.
Needed to edit "css.php" and "button.php"

enter image description here

Button.php

<div class="ossn-comment-attach-photo giphy-comment-icon-container">
    <div class="position-absolute giphy-container">
        <div class="giphy-container-inner">
            <span class="search-giphy" placeholder="Search Giphy" contenteditable="true"></span>
            <a class="close-giphy-container"><i class="fa fa-times"></i></a>
            <img src='link/to/image' />
            <div class="giphy-list"></div>
        </div>
    </div>
    <i class="giphy-icon"></i>
</div>

I just extended the container to fit in the picture.

Here are the changes, hope this helps
