Images

You can either:

  • Insert an image by using the Special:Upload upload form first and then note down the file name and extension to add to a wiki page last; or
  • Add the image into the wiki page using an image placeholder using the formatting shown below (be sure to change the file name and extensions as necessary to match the image you intend to upload) and then when the wiki page edits have been saved, click on the red link which takes you to the upload form last.

No text wrapping
