Uploading images

The Easy Steps

  • Upload a file here.
  • Displaying the file in an article: After uploading the image you can insert it in your articles with:
[[image:YOUR FILE NAME.jpg|right|thumb|300px|YOUR PICTURE COMMENTS]]
  • The fancy stuff: Supposing that you uploaded an image file named Actionstarts.jpg, to insert this file in your article you can insert in your text either of the following codes:
[[image:Actionstarts.jpg|right|thumb|300px|Width of 300 pixels, aligned to the right]]
{{clr}}
[[image:Actionstarts.jpg|center|thumb|100px|Width of 100 pixels, aligned in the middle]]
{{clr}}
[image:Actionstarts.jpg|left|thumb|500px|Width of 500 pixels, aligned to the left]]

This code displays:

Width of 300 pixels, aligned to the right


Width of 100 pixels, aligned in the middle


Width of 500 pixels, aligned to the left


Inserting links to other Cayucopedia Articles.

You can insert links within other CayucoPedia articles by:

  • Writing the already created article title within double brackets:

[[Nissan Ocean to Ocean Cayuco Race]]
This will appear in your regular text as Nissan Ocean to Ocean Cayuco Race.
Notice that links to articles are Case sensitive.

  • Writing an alias for the already existing article.

For instance: [[Nissan Ocean to Ocean Cayuco Race|Ocean to Ocean]]
Will still link to the Nissan Ocean to Ocean Cayuco Race article but will appear in your regular wiki text as Ocean to Ocean.
This option is useful when you would like to insert a link into a paragraph but you don't want to type down the title of the article with the Capital letters or when you want to refer to the article in a way that makes sense in the paragraph.

You can find more information about using links in Wiki text here, and info on the aliased links here.

Inserting links to Wikipedia and to other Wiki Projects

You can insert links WikiPedia articles by:

  • Writing the Wikipedia article title within double brackets and adding the wp: preffix:

[[wp:Panama Canal]]
This will appear in your regular text as wp:Panama Canal.
Notice that links to articles are Case sensitive.

  • Writing an alias for the already existing article.

For instance you can write:
[[wp:Panama Canal|]]
To get rid of the wp: preffix while still linking to the wikipedia article. The link will appear in your regular wiki text as Panama Canal.
You can also add an alias to the link by writing an alternative name after the pipe symbol. For instance:
[[wp:Panama Canal|The Atlantic to Pacific Panama Canal]]
Will be read in your regular Wiki text as The Atlantic to Pacific Panama Canal but still will link to the Panama Canal Wikipedia article.
