renaming buttons as gif


Recommended Posts



Just wondering if anyone has experimented with renaming jpg buttons as gif. I was looking for a way to switch to jpg buttons without having to edit all the button img tags in all the pages. It seems to work fine in the browsers that I have to look at it with. The browser seems to display it ok even though it has a gif extension.


Win 2000 - IE5

Mac OS X - Safari 1.2.2

Mac OS X - IE 5.2.3


Anyone know of a downside?


Thanks, kevin

you can do that with 'windows grep' i use it all the time when coding. search for .gif thru all the files (if you have all the images with jpg) and replace with .jpg thru the whole site. just make sure you have a backup
