Help:Managing files

From Wikiwrimo
Jump to: navigation, search

You can upload certain types of files to the wiki. At this time you can upload png, gif, jpg, and jpeg files.

Upload a file

  1. Prepare the file for upload. Make sure the file is exactly as you want it.
  2. In the sidebar, under “tools”, click “upload file.”
  3. Click “Browse” next to the “Source filename:” to locate the file on your computer (the name of the “browse” button depends on your web browser).
  4. Change the “Destination filename:” to something descriptive, if necessary.
  5. Fill in the “Summary,” if necessary.
  6. Click the “Upload file” button.

If it is a large file, you may need to wait several seconds for the upload to complete.

Using Images and File Description Pages

After you've uploaded a file, you can use it in an article, with some special wiki syntax to create the link. See Help:Images.

Your file gets its very own “File Description Page” within the File namespace of the wiki. You should edit this page to provide more information about the file. Explain where you got the file from, and what its copyright status is, on the description page. Any other useful descriptive notes could also be added there.
