Repeating .gif in html table cards

Hello Domo Users!

I have recently created a html table card that pulls in image / gif URLs. When the page the card lives on is first loaded, the gifs play once, and then do not repeat. Is there a way to get the gifs to repeat while the page is loaded? Not sure where to start on this one, and I don't see anything like it in the help article here: https://domohelp.domo.com/hc/en-us/articles/360043430033-Adding-Graphics-Links-and-Images-to-Table-Cards-Using-Beast-Mode


Here is the beastmode I am using currently:


CONCAT('<div align=center><a href="', `URL`, '"></div><div align=center><img src="', `URL`, '"height="',`Creative Height`,'"></div>')


Thanks for your help in advance!

    Looping is encoded into the GIF itself, not the img tag. Open the GIF in an image editor and change the mode to loop.

    If you have access to Adobe Photoshop, here are the steps:

    • Open your file in Photoshop
    • Go to File and click Save For Web
    • At the very bottom of the save dialog, you will see the Animation section, which should no longer be greyed out
    • Choose forever and save it.


    Hope this helps.
