For security reasons, OpenURU.org does not allow direct upload of images or other media files. The use of images is still possible but the process is slightly different from most other wikis using the MediaWiki software.


Access Scope

Image files are stored in a special "assets" area of the website, which is only accessible by the OpenURU.org domain, in other words, images uploaded for use in the wiki can be used in other areas of the website (such as the OpenURU.org forums) but cannot be linked to from external websites.

Uploading of Files

Files can only be uploaded by wiki sysops: You should contact Mac_Fife or admin to arrange for you files to be placed on the server. Once this is done, you will be given the URLs to use to reference these files.

Including images

In-line images

In-line images are ones which appear directly on your page (rather than just as links to images).

Do not use the Embedded File button on the editing toolbar to add images to your page. This will not work. Instead, simply insert the URL you were given when the file was uploaded with no "wiki markup".

More detail will follow
