I don't know why your "FAQ" page redirects to mediawiki but I suspect some kind of built-in functionality. Let's use WikiIndex:FrequentlyAskedQuestions for the time being.


95199503_e4c24693f6.jpg TedErnst char 90 per cent.jpg TedErnst char 50 per cent.jpg TedErnst char 25 percent.jpg TedErnst char 10 per cent.jpg

Rather than uploading various sizes of the same image, just upload the largest size that will be needed. For this example, assume the first image above is uploaded here as "TedErnst.jpg". The same results as what you've got would be obatined by typing the following: [[Image:TedErnst.jpg]] [[Image:TedErnst.jpg|348px]] [[Image:TedErnst.jpg|193px]] [[Image:TedErnst.jpg|39px]]

Just specify the number of pixels wide you want an image to be scaled to. Specify "thumb" to thumbnail it. Other parameters include left, right, center, and frame. Any other text is put in as a caption. I'm going to upload a picture of myself and do all this on my page to show you what I mean. —User:Sean Fennel@ 12:31, 3 Mar 2006 (EST) EDIT: Apparently only thumbnailed images can have captions, but I think you can specify the size of thethumbnail.


it is not just on the Wiki Engine page, it is now on the Category talk:All page

The recurisive problem is gone, did you do something with it, or did the database just flush it out? Soooo!! It looks great!!!! There is an issue with Lizzy still, I think in the Category:English

As far as your comment: "UseMod Wiki isn't going to show up in the OpenEdit cat anymore, correct? Doesn't seem right." - not sure what you mean, I thought we solved that issue with a soft redirect? MarkDilley | talk


Hi Ted, there's a new template:sysop that can be used to tag users, which are currently active sysops. I think this will be good, because only sysops have the right to bluck/unblock and if someone feels blocked he needs help. --Wolf | talk 06:44, 13 October 2007 (EDT)

Thank you for using the tag. Is there a page on WikiIndex, where a user can address all admins, in case he or she needs help urgently? Should we make the talk page of category:Active administrators of this wiki to that place? --Wolf | talk 16:04, 13 October 2007 (EDT)
Good idea. I'll put it on my watch list. TedErnst | talk 17:23, 13 October 2007 (EDT)

Addition of a wikiFactor?[edit]

Dear TedErnst, I have just started the page Proposal:wikiFactor, and it would be wonderful if you would take a look. All the best --Carl McBride (talk) 05:38, 4 March 2009 (EST)

Request for ServerMove concerns[edit]

I wanted to be sure to draw your attention to the upcoming ServerMove and solicit your help in making the transition a positive rather than negative experience. Please take a moment to visit ServerMove and curate the list of concerns.

Weigh in on WikiIndex:ServerName#Poll?[edit]

I like to inform You about a likely decision to change the domain of our wiki. Maybe You have an opinion on this, suggest additional names even. Please take part in the decision finding process. --22:14, 13 March 2015 (UTC)Manorainjan (talk)
