Definition lists

: the item's definition
the item's definition


You can insert images using the syntax:

[[Image:filename|options|caption text]]

The last item added will always be considered the caption text.

Stans alone image


Small HA logo.png

Stans alone image with alt-text

You add "|caption text" after the image link. This is the text most browsers will show when you hover over the image with the mouse.

[[Image:Small_HA_logo.png|The HA logo]]

The HA logo

Images options

The HA logo
thumbnail, thumb
Generates an automatically resized thumbnail image (either reduced or enlarged).
Caption text is displayed directly underneath. An "enlarge"-icon is added.
If you do not specify where the image should be place it will be places to the right.
Example to the right (in this example the image is enlarged because it is small):
[[Image:Small_HA_logo.png|thumb|The HA logo]]

Makes the image right-aligned.

Same as above, but left aligned.

Same as above, but centered.

The image will be rendered inline, even if the thumbnail-option is set.

The HA logo
The image will have a frame, regardless of whether it is a thumb, and the caption text will be included as a visible caption.
Example to the right:

Renders a version of the image that's [size] pixels wide (e.g. '150px').
Height is computed to keep the aspect ratio (i.e. the shape of the image).
This allows both size reduction and enlargement.

Combining options
You can combine the options as you like. Example (as you see below resizing is often not very good):
[[Image:Small_HA_logo.png|50px|left|none|The HA logo]]
The HA logo

[[Image:Small_HA_logo.png|none|frame|The HA logo]]

Using HTML

HTML is enabled at this wiki but you should only use it when you are quite sure that there is no way to do what you need to do without raw HTML. You should check the official guides first.

For special html tags you need to add "<html></html>" around your code.

Additional hints

You can avoid that the wiki system proccessing the text (to avoid unwanted formatting) by putting <nowiki></nowiki> around the text you want to parse directly.
