I have a *.gif as an embed in a sidecar slide. I tried the following with both an iframe and img tag. Neither removed the message. 

<iframe src="unionoil.gif" remove-click-to-interact="true" alt="union oil explosion" style="width:70%;height:70%;"></iframe>

There were a couple old posts referring to the "click anywhere to interact" message that pops up.

The only way I was able to remove it was to add an image on its own, as in outside of the sidecar. Can I not remove the message in a sidecar slide?

I wasn't following instructions to embed images (i.e. GIFs) properly. I was linking the GIF which I hosted on our server and then provided the link in the Embed window.

embed1.pngI learned that if you link it as opposed to just pasting the HTML code in the box there is a good chance you will experience problems. Check this article out:

So, after reading the article I pasted the code in the Embed window instead using remove-click-to-interact='true', like so, and the message did not appear.

<iframe src="https://webapp.willcountyillinois.com/unionoil.gif" remove-click-to-interact="true" alt="union oil explosion" style="width:70%;height:70%;"></iframe>

Is there a particular reason you need to add your GIF using an "Embed"? If not, then I would instead upload the GIF file directly as "Image or video" on your sidecar slide.

Hi @PeterKnoop ,

That's actually what I originally did. Even though the file was under the limit the page would freeze up. I removed a whole bunch of frames from the GIF; as much as I could until there were the minimum amount needed to make sense. It would just "save" for hours.
