Gale 23 Nov 08, 07:12 UTC: Hi Carsten, this is the syntax for making a link with an image:
[<full URL of link><space><full URL OF image] - so:

[http://audacityteam.org/wiki/index.php?title=Special:Emailuser/Cumbrowski http://audacityteam.org/wiki/images/3/36/Nuvola_apps_email.png]

gives you:
Nuvola_apps_email.png

There is no way (I know of) to control the size of the image with this syntax.

Hi Gale, the links do not seem to be a problem anymore. That must have been something to do that either my account was too new or somebody changed the status of my user or something like that. My attempt to create a template still failed though, but not because of links, but the use of DIV html tags that trigger the spam filter. It appears that the use of DIV tags is prohibited throughout the Wiki. That's a setting in the Wiki configuration or the spam filter. I have not seen that CAPTCHA option before and thus not sure, if you are using a third party extension for this or if that is now part of the current version of the Mediawiki itself. It has been a while since I messed with the Mediawiki software itself :). --roy<sac> Talk! .oOo. 18:20, 26 November 2008 (PST)

Hi Carsten

The spam filter does block some odd things at times but the div tag itself is OK, I use it for page anchors. Maybe you could post the code here that fails (wrap it inside <nowiki></nowiki> tags to show it "as is" on the page).

By the way we don't need <span class="plainlinks"> here because the arrow for external links has been removed from the CSS.

The code that does not pass the spam filter is this one for example:
(div style="background-color=green;border=2px solid blue;padding=2px;position=relative;" align="center")
It also got caught by the spam filter, even if the code is included in a <nowiki></nowiki> tag.
I replaced the leading < and the trailing > with (). Thanks for the info about the CSS. I copied and pasted the code that I used in Wikipedia and only adjusted the obvious. Why reinvent the wheel, right?! :) --roy<sac> Talk! .oOo. 13:31, 27 November 2008 (PST)
update and I also had to replace the : with = for the style values. The < and > replacements were not enough. --roy<sac> Talk! .oOo. 13:32, 27 November 2008 (PST)
