When you upload a file to the wiki, the software stores it in a location that is referenced by the namespace "File:". You do not need to provide a url to display the file. Instead, you use the "File:" reference (example highlighted below) to display it.
You can view all the files that have been uploaded by typing Special:FileList in the wiki Search box. View the file list
So, for example, if you upload a file named mypic.jpg, you would reference it in an article like this:
Double brackets refer to an internal link. Single brackets refer to an external link.
- E.g. External link:
Placing a space after the url and adding text will display the text instead of the url
- E.g. External link with text
[http://www.vvfh.org/ VVFH.org]Example: VVFH.org
Double brackets refer to an internal link.
- E.g Internal link:
Placing a pipe sign ("|") between the url and text will display the text
- E.g. Internal link with text
[[Help:Images|Help with images]]Example: Help with images
To link to a file you've uploaded, use this code:
[[File:Example.jpg]]will display the Example.jpg file.
As with all internal links, you can provide a name for the image by using a pipe sign ("|"). If you do that, when the viewer hovers their mouse over the link, the name will appear.
[[File:Example.jpg|This is the name]]
You can control the size of the image by providing a second field with the image size.
[[File:Example.jpg|200x134px|This is the name]]
