Images and videos enrich the content of the wiki. There are several methods to embed these resources in the wiki.

Embedding images

We recommend embedded images in the following formats.

Thumbnail images

These appear on the right-hand side of the wiki page with a caption below them. The recommended size is 450px.

Use the following markup:

[[File:yourfile.png|thumb|450px|Your caption goes here.]]

Example: Mounts

Footnote images

These appear in the {{Notes}} section at the bottom of the wiki page. The recommended size for footnote images is 350px.

Use the following markup:


Example: Tulnar

Embedding video

Use the following markup for video files that have been uploaded to the wiki:

[[File:yourfile.mp4|thumb|400px|Your caption goes here.]]

Example: Freeholds

YouTube and Twitch videos

Due to the lack of guaranteed availability and advertising content we do not recommend embedding YouTube and Twitch videos directly into the wiki. There are some notable exceptions, such as articles in the Media category.
