Managing Plugin Resources Wiki Article
« on: August 11, 2008, 09:25:03 pm »
I've just updated the article with a bunch of content and will hopefully get time to finished off the missing sections soon.

http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=Managing_Plug-in_Resources

The article should prove helpful for newbie plugin developers, but it could use some proofing for errors from experienced members of the team, so please feel free to edit or suggest changes.

Can anyone tell me how I can add screenshots to wiki articles? Specifically, where can I upload images and how do I link to them?

In the wiki you can click on "Help" -> "Mediawiki Help" and have a look about wiki-markup.
Very interestant is the following link http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Reference_card .

But in short:
type something like:
Code: [Select]
[[Image:DuplicateCompiler.png|thumb|none|Duplicate Compiler]]
the first is the name the image should have on the server,
the second tells the server to create a thumbnail and show it instead of the big image (the thumb is a link to the big image),
the third: ?,
the fourth is the caption of the image.

If you put this code in the wiki it shows in red the name of the image (if it does not exist n the server).
If you now click on the red name a page opens where you can chose the image to upload.

An example how it looks like (with the above wiki-code):
