Different on our wiki

Some things don't work exactly like the instructions from wikipedia above.

Uploading a file, such as an image

  1. Uploading a file = creating a special page for it here: http://wiki.hackuarium.ch/index.php?title=Special:Upload
  2. On your page, create an internal link with the usual syntax. Examples of code:

[[File:File-name.jpg|thumb|left|Legend in the box]] will put an image in a frame, on the left of the text, with a legend.

[[File:document-name.pdf]] will link to the versioning page, where you can open the document.

[[Media:document-name.pdf]] will open directly the document in the browser

[[Media:document-name.pdf | New name]] try it!

Special rules and pages at wiki.Hackuarium


The structure should be found one day around http://wiki.hackuarium.ch/index.php?title=Mode_d%27emploi In the mean time, please see Category:Manual

EN vs FR versions

these are still quite a haphazard mix, and rarely still direct translations.
