For security reasons, does not allow direct upload of images or other media files. The use of images is still highly recommended 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. They are accessible across the entire domain (such as the forums or project subdomain websites) but cannot be linked to ("hotlinked") from external websites.

Uploading of Files

Files can only be uploaded by wiki sysops: You should contact Mac_Fife or admin with links to arrange for your 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
