More than one image on page

There are several ways of organising multiple images on a page.

These are examples of some of the techniques which have been used in The Wiki. They are based on using a table.


For an explanation of how tables are constructed see Working With Tables

Table as used in the Places of Worship

These pictures are laid out in a table. You can have single pictures or several in a row.

Clicking on the picture takes you to the full size image.

You do not need to upload your picture to The Wiki first.

When you have saved your page you will be taken to to the upload page when you click on the name of the picture.

More than four pictures

The maximum number of pictures in a row should be four.

If more rows are needed, you should make another table below the first one.

Simple Gallery ~ small thumbnails

Using the Mediawiki Gallery gives a preset table. You have little or no flexibility in using this.

If you click on the pictures, you see the image itself. Selecting the link takes you to the page in The Wiki.


THE CODE

<gallery caption="CONTENTS">
Image: WIP2_fr2.jpg|[[World_Index_Page]]
Image: Surnames3_fr2.jpg|[[Surname Directory]]
Image: Census_fr2.jpg|[[Census_Search]]
</gallery>
