This page explains the image syntax when editing the wiki.

Important

It is not possible to upload images directly and exclusively into the English-language version of the Stadtwiki Karlsruhe. Please upload all images to the German site. All images there can be used here, too.

The only difference is that the German site uses Bild instead of “Image”.

You can edit the description page of any image here.

Examples

Syntax

The full syntax for displaying an image is:

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

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

  • thumb, thumbnail, or frame: Controls how the image is formatted
  • left, right, center, none: Controls the alignment of the image on the page
  • {width}px: Resizes the image to the given width in pixels
  • {caption text}: Must not end with "px"
  • Special cases:
    • page=1: displays the specified page when showing a djvu file.

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.

Other files

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

  • [http://url.for/some/image.png]

Or with different text:

  • [http://url.for/some/image.png link text here]

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:
