Uploading and Inserting Images and Files

Video Tutorial

View this video tutorial to learn how to upload and display images on the Wiki. You will also learn how to upload and insert files such as PDFs or code examples.


Uploading Images and Files

You have the ability to insert images and files into your Wiki content. To access them from the Wiki, you must first upload them. To do this, go to the page where you want to insert the file and click “Edit this Page”.

On the editing toolbar, click the icon labeled “Add Images and other files”.

A dialog box will appear that allows you to browse for a picture or file on your computer and upload it to the current folder by clicking upload. To upload to a different folder on the Wiki, select it from the left menu.

Inserting Images and Files

Once you have uploaded your image or file, go to the area on the page you would like it to appear and click the “Add images and other files” icon again (you can also insert images and files right after you upload them if you place your cursor where you want to insert the image or file prior to uploading it). Select your image or file from the dialog box by clicking on its name. This will insert the code to display the image or link to the file at this spot in the Wiki.

Alternatively, if you know the name of your image or file, you can also insert it manually by using the following Wiki syntax:
