Here are a few pointers to help pages on the odd wiki page formatting syntax.

Images can be uploaded and included in the page with:

[[Image:IMG_3854.jpg|thumb|250px|right|Trade Center walkway]]

where: IMG_3854.jpg is the name of the image that was uploaded thumb is the display format. One of 'thumb', 'frame'; 250px is the width of the image; right is the alignment. One of 'right', 'left', 'center'; Trade Center walkway is text displayed with the picture. This uses the picture template to include the image. Clicking on the image takes on to the loaded image page.

Galleries can be created with:

<gallery caption="Sample gallery" widths="100px" heights="100px" perrow="6">
Image:IMAGENAME.png|optional caption


Several extensions have been added to this wiki:

Name pages and subpages with slashes in names (Architecture/Renderer) and headers will be added to pages saying "Architecture > Renderer".


Where: {photoid} is the Flickr photo ID. This is the only compulsory parameter. All others are optional and will be detected automatically. Anything which isn't detected as on another parameter will be classified as part of the caption. {type} is the image type of 'thunb' or 'frame'. {location} is 'right', 'left', 'center' or 'none'). Defaults to 'right'. {size} is one of 's', 'm', 'b', 't' (small, medium, big, thumb). Defaults to medium. {caption} is an image title. If left blank or not set then defaults to title of image from Flickr.

Example: "{{#ev:youtube|dMH0bHeiRNg}}". The name of the service can be 'youtube', 'googlevideo', 'misterblue' (for streaming MOV files), 'misterblueswf' (swf files). A third parameter can be added for the width.
