Uploaded files

To use an image or other file which has been uploaded to the wiki, use:

If you add a pipe (|) and some text after the filename, the text will be used as alternative text for text-only browsers:

If you don't want to display the image, you can link to the file's description page, by adding a colon:

You can also make piped links if you want some other text to be used:

Advanced options

The full syntax for displaying an image is:

[[Image:{name}|{options}]]

Where options can be zero or more of the following, separated by pipes:

The options can be given in any order. If a given option does not match any of the other possibilities, it is assumed to be the caption text. Caption text can contain wiki links or other formatting.

Gallery of images

It's easy to make a gallery of thumbnails with the <gallery> tag. The syntax is:

<gallery>
Image:{filename}|{caption}
Image:{filename}|{caption}
{...}
</gallery>

Captions are optional, and may contain wiki links or other formatting.

for example:

<gallery>
Image:Example.jpg|Item 1
Image:Example.jpg|a link to [[Help:Contents]]
Image:Example.jpg
Image:Example.jpg
Image:Example.jpg|''italic caption''
</gallery>

is formatted as:

Other files

You can link to an external file using the same syntax used for linking to an external web page.

Or with different text:
