First step in using an image or other media file is to upload it. Once you've uploaded some files, you can use it in the wiki by Editing the pages and placing the Images.

Upload a file

  1. Prepare the file for upload.
  2. In the sidebar, under “tools”, click “upload file”.
  3. Click “Browse” next to the “Source filename:” to locate the file on your computer (the name of the “browse” button depends on your web browser).
  4. Change the “Destination filename:” to something descriptive, if necessary. Try to make it as clear and descriptive as possible, without making it excessively long.
  5. Fill in the “Summary,” the copyright status and description if necessary.
  6. Click the “Upload file” button.


  • If a file of the same name exists, the file you'll upload will replace him.
