You can upload an image to a page, replacing the text on that page. A page can contain only text or an image. You can inline these images on other pages, of course.
Alternatively, just use sites such as Flickr to store your images.
Here are the steps to create an image and link to it. The image appears on a Web page by itself.
NOTE: Avoid Internet Explorer for the uploading (see EmacsWikiProblems).
Here are the steps to make an image appear in line, together with text and other images on the same Web page.
The image page still exists, but the link to it does not appear. Instead, the image is displayed in place of the link.
Note that this wiki is protected by a SurgeProtector?: You are only allowed 10 hits in 20 seconds. If you inline images stored on wiki pages, then every image counts as another hit. Assume a visitor does nothing for 20 seconds, and then visits a page with 10 inlined images. With the 10 hits allowed in 20 seconds, you will be able to load the page itself, and 9 inlined images. The last image will not load. You can try it yourself by reloading this page more than 10 times: You’ll get an error: Too many connections from xxx!
The limit on inlined images does not apply if you inline images from external sources using an ordinary URL.
An ordinary URL is not defined explicitly, but it would appear to require an image-type suffix (eg.
.jpg .png .gif etc.)
http://imgur.com is a decent, easy-to-use host that does not require an account (unlike Flickr), but their images are not inlined by default:
Unless you grab the special URL
Don’t, and probably can’t.
One of the BannedRegexps prohibits pages from ending with URLS, so an ending url-image will fire off the ban-hammer. You will see this in action if you hit preview. If the page can’t be rendered, backup, and edit the page so that something else (non-whitespace) comes after the url.
