Image Inclusion

You must be given permission by the administrator to upload new images to the wiki. What follows are instructions on how to link to an image already on the wiki, and on linking to an external image.

Fill in local addressname only of an image in your gallery (typically in the form below)
 {img src=file_name.php?id=1 }

 {img src=} 

Tip: Upload images edited to proper dimensions; it is possible to "crop" and "resize" in the wiki, but this presents a lower quality image. See Tikiwiki Documentation

Formating the image

Add any of these categories in the tag above, to crop or place it
 {img src= width=100 height=100 align=right desc=logo link= } 


Advanced Users

Wiki interfaces are designed to be simple. If you would like guidance on producing more sophisticated effects, please consult source: the documentation website (which is, of course, a group-created wiki).
