Okay, here is a very simple guide to uploading images to the Wiki here.STEP 1
Download the image to your computer's hard drive. I'm going to assume you know how to do this. The exact method varies with operating system and browser. Generally referred to as "click-saving".Step 2
Open the Wiki. At or near the top of the window that Elliquiy is open in should be a row of buttons. Exactly what they look like depends on the theme you are using. The Wiki button is on the left, labelled "Wiki".
This will open the Elluiki welcome page
. There is a lot of important information there that you should probably read at some point... Also links to guides on how to go about creating a wiki page.
But for now, let's upload your picture....Step 3
On the left hand side of the window are a number of menus. Locate and click the one that says "Upload file".Step 4
This will take you to the "File Upload Screen"Step 5
Click the button marked "Browse". This will open a standard dialogue box asking you to select which file you want to upload. Navigate your hard drive to the file you want and select it. I'm assuming you know how to do this. Again it varies with operating system.Step 6
When you have selected the file, you will be shown a thumbnail of it to the right, along with some technical details like it's size and dimensions. The destination file name box will have filled in automatically. If there is already a file on the wiki with that name,
you will be given a warning, shown the existing file and asked whether you want to replace the existing file or change your file's destination name.
If this happens, simply type a new name into the Destination Filename box. The name of your character joined with the name of the game is most likely to be unique. DO NOT USE AN AMPERSAND
If the filename is already unique you don't need to change it, but you may want to anyway.Step 7
In the Summary box type the following:
[[category:characters]] Character image of charactername
replacing the bits in italics with the name of your character and the name of the roleplay.Step 8
Click the button marked "Upload File".
There, that was a lot easier than you thought it was going to be, wasn't it?
You should now see a screen with a thumbnail of the file you just uploaded and a whole load of technical gubbins.THIS IS THE BIT PEOPLE MOST OFTEN GET WRONGLEFT-click
on the thumbnail.
This will open the picture on your screen, full size or scaled to fit.RIGHT-click
on the image.
This should (depending on your browser and device) open a pop-up menu. Click on "COPY IMAGE LOCATION
In your character sheet, between the img and /img tags, paste the url you have just copied.
it should look something like this:https://elliquiy.com/elluiki/images/8/86/Wiki_Guide_4.png
If it doesn't, you selected the wrong thing!
Two final points:Where can I find all the pics I just uploaded?
On the welcome screen there are a number of menu items in the top right corner. Locate the one that says "Contributions" and click it.
This will open a list of everything you have ever uploaded to the wiki. (Mine is quite long!) Click an item it will take you to the detail page for that item. remember to click the thumbnail before copying the locationHow do I get back to the Forums?
In the menu on the left is a menu item "The Forums".
You can upload your pics into your own Wiki contributions area whenever you like. Wiki is common, so I will be able to link them directly into the wiki character sheets.
