This logo is currently used, or was previously used by [[{{{1}}}]]. All copyrights belong to and retained by its original creator(s) and / or owner. It is used here on WikiIndex under 'fair use' terms, solely to assist with this non-commercial informative project.

This WikiLogoOf is an image / logo template, which is helpful for building a visual WikiIndex. By using it on a logo image file, it will automatically categorise said logo into category: WikiLogo.

Note: this {{WikiLogoOf}} is the 'default' logo tagging template; however, granularity is strongly preferred. For other specific logos, please see template:File / image templates table (as shown below). For wiki engine-specific logos, please use: {{Engine logo of}}. For license-specific logos, please use: {{License logo of}}.

In the relevant logo file page, use it by typing:

{{WikiLogoOf|name of wiki page}}

If you need to use it for a logo on a category page, include a colon after the pipe:

{{WikiLogoOf|:category: openSUSE}}

Remember, when you are uploading an image file here on WikiIndex, during the upload process, you have a space in the 'Summary:' box for adding further detail; such as its source location (URL, please wrap the URL in <nowiki></nowiki> command to prevent live link creation), any license detail, copyright, 'fair use' claims, and any other pertinent information, etc.


This image or logo template table shows all of the current (and proposed) templates to be used when uploading new images, or editing existing image files. Crucially, usage of the correct image template not only auto-categorises the image file correctly into its appropriate sub-category, it also highlights any specific copyright noted by the said image, and apportions the copyright to its rightful owner. This is vital, because images (and related visual media) are classed as 'art', and licensing for works of art is very different to written textual work. Many wiki logo are specifically protected by copyright.


Simply select and highlight {{WikiLogoOf|}}, copy (Ctrl-c on your PC keyboard or ⌘-c on your Mac keyboard), and then paste (Ctrl-v or ⌘-v) it to the relevant file / image sub-category edit box, and save your edit (Ctrl-s or ⌘-s). This will then auto-include it into the appropriate file / image category as shown in the table below.
