How to...[edit source]
Add my Signature[edit source]
It is highly recommended all users sign their posts on Talk pages. To do this, type four tildes (~~~~) at the end of every post. This will produce a unique variant of: Lord Vladen – Imperial Palace 10:11, 18 November 2007 (CST)
Create a Userpage?[edit source]
In order to create a userpage, you must be a registered user of this wiki. Once you are signed in, your account name will appear at the top of the page as a redlink. Click on it and you will be taken to a blank page, which you can edit. Save this, and it will appear as your userpage. Clicking on the discussion tab will create your User talk page.
Upload images[edit source]
Simply click the "Upload file" link located on the sidebar, under the "Toolbox" menu. You will then be taken to the upload screen, where a set of instructions will guide you through the upload process. Note that only registered users may upload files.
Link to images[edit source]
To link to an image, the following format is used: [[Image:(image name).(image extention)]]. So, for example, you would add [[Image:Ungolim.jpg]] to a page to display that image. Remember that only images uploaded to this wiki, under the specified filename, will appear on a page.
You can further customize images as presented on a page. You can display it as a thumbnail by simply using this format extension: [[Image:Ungolim.jpg|thumb]]. Additionally, you may add a caption beneath the image by simply typing your desired text after the formatting: [[Image:Ungolim.jpg|thumb|Ungolim]], which will produce the caption "Ungolim."
You can also set the size of the image in pixels: [[Image:Ungolim.jpg|(Number)px]], so for example, to set an image to the standard 250 pixels, you would type: [[Image:Ungolim.jpg|250px]].
You can also dictate which side of the page the image will appear on, using simple left, right or center commands. For example, [[Image:Ungolim.jpg|left]] will show the image on the left side of the screen.
If you want to link to an image or category, without displaying the image itself or including the page in that category, simply use a colon, thus:
[[:Image:Ungolim.jpg]] or [[:Category:Bosmer]], which will produce:
