On the third day of wiki...

Wiki - Gallery - Forum and More. Discuss them here.
I know everyone is still busy reading HP, but for those who are reading this, today I will talk about images, and how to put them in the wiki.


After you have logged in, on the left side of the window under tools, is upload file.

Clicking this link will take you to a page where you can select, rename and upload a file or image.

To upload an image, click choose file, and then select the image you would like to upload. The name of the file will appear under "Destination filename". Here you can rename the image. If it is something cryptic, please do rename it to something that makes sense.


Then click "upload file"
Most likely, the image will upload without issue, but there are a few things that could popup.

If you are given a waring about renaming the file, just go ahead with it. It is usually just an issue with spaces in the name.

If the file is over 256K it will ask if you want to continue. It is up to you, you could just upload it, or you could also resize it smaller.

If you are told that an image already exists with that name PLEASE DO NOT CONTINUE. dont overwrite our image... it's not cool. Choose an other name.

here is a video I had made for uploading images on my other site:

Once you have uploaded said file, you will want to use it.
Copy the name of the file at the top after it ha uploaded.

In the article you are editing you can place the image in there like so:
[[image:imagename.jpg]]

Thats really all you need to do. There is even a button for it.

If you want, there are some options for images, and how they are put in the article

[[image:imagename.jpg|left]] will put the image on the left
[[image:imagename.jpg|right]] will put the image on the right
[[image:imagename.jpg|thumb]] will place a smaller version of the image
[[image:imagename.jpg|frame]] will put the image in a frame, and make it smaller.
[[image:imagename.jpg|frame|text]] will put the image in a frame with a caption under it
[[image:imagename.jpg|200px]] will make the image smaller at eactly 200px wide
(any size can be entered)

These can be mixed
[[image:imagename.jpg|left|frame|350px|caption text]] This will put the image on the left in a frame at 350 pixels wide with a caption under it.
