Help needed with broken Wiki links
« on: May 27, 2019, 02:29:38 pm »
Hi all

I am attempting my first Wiki page to upload a series of images of the same character. The image links are:

[[File:https://elliquiy.com/elluiki/images/a/a3/Denise_Porter_01.jpg]] etc, etc

and the error I'm getting when the page is uploaded is:

"File:Https://elliquiy.com/elluiki/images/a/a3/Denise Porter 01.jpg

Category: Pages with broken file links"

I am obviously missing something that's staring me in the face but if anyone can point out what it is, I'd be grateful.

Thanks all.

Is the file saved onto your computer under pictures or whatever you save things under?

Did you read this, as well and followed the steps? I am trying to be helpful because I can see the image on my laptop so, just trying to see what exactly it is that you might've done wrong.

I am happy to help you out though. :)

Instead of this:

[[File:https://elliquiy.com/elluiki/images/a/a3/Denise_Porter_01.jpg]] etc, etc

You need to input this:

[[File:Denise_Porter_01.jpg]]

You just need the file name, not the actual web address.

If you need help with Wiki coding feel free to shoot me a PM anytime!

Thanks folks!

A second question - what tags are required in a Wiki to set the image display size? I take it, its not the same as the [ img ] [ size= xxxx ]  [ /size ] [ /img ] used on the forums?

Like this, with the number being the width.
