Exporting GIF with embedded URL


(Kelly Hayden) #1

I’m making banner ads and have made them so when you click any part of the banner it takes you to the company’s website. When I preview the banner in hype and click the banner the link works and their website opens in a new tab. When I open the GIF and click it nothing happens. I’m worried that it won’t work when uploaded to their website. I have tried dragging the banner into my web browser, and still nothing. Any ideas?

Don’t worry. The GIF is only a Fallback-Image the adserver uses for specific media partners. The media server wraps that image into a anchor (link) that enables the clickTarget to be reached.
Check your GIF and how many “loops” it has… a lot of Networks demand the GIF to stop cycling after a fixed time.
