This page explains the image syntax when editing the wiki. You or another user must usually upload an image before you can use it on a page.
All uploaded files are stored in one single folder, so the naming is important to be able to structure and find the files.
The name of the images uploaded to the web site should follow the following name convention
- Only use small letters.
- Use the character '-' (minus) to separate words in the file name.
- The name of the files should start with the path to the page where the image should be displayed.
Example on file names:
Example on name selection:
If an image exists on the page:
The path on the site is: C3Fire:Config/UI/Main_Layout
It will define the start of name for the image file to c3fire-config-ui-main-layout
If it is an image displaying map-layer-control then the image name should be:
Explaining Name: map-layer-control
File Name: c3fire-config-ui-main-layout-map-layer-control.png
To make scree captures look good the site we recommend to have the images on the same side to have the same size.
We recommend the following width size as 500 ... 800 if possible.
Use ShareX to test if a window have a specific size.
In ShareX select fixed region size to be width 750, then when capture region, an area with a width 750 will be shown.
Go to the Upload file page to upload a file, or use the wizard UploadWizard to upload a series of images. View a list of all uploaded files at page File list, or view a log of the uploaded files at page Upload Log.
- Put Image to C3System resources
Mail all uploaded images to the site web master so that the files can be put in the C3System resources.
The web master should copy all uploaded files should to the C3System resources folder in the web site backup and in system installation.
Web master: Always copy the files to web site backup folder:
...\MediaWiki\Sync\Images\, (and in the folder structure)
Web master: If access, then copy the files to system development folder:
The files will exist in system instalation folder:
- Select image, and press on the delete button at the page foot.
- Confirm delete.
