Ok there is a link to the first page of the animated graphics at the bottom of this article. And there are at least 2-3 other graphics pages if not more. They don't show up as orphaned but I'll be damned if I can find any links to them. Maybe we can set up the page below to be the one that list out all the pages that have graphics on them. Personally I would like to see a page that has them all listed at least by name. A central location I can go to determine the name of the graphic I want to use instead of running all over the site to find it.

Ok I saw at the top of the first page where the other pages are linked at, but it was only after the 4th or 5th time I looked at it. It wasn't obvious. That aside I would still like to see something so that members could just look somewhere and get the filename. Not just see that it's a picture of the Enterprise, but "ent-e-sm.gif" or whatever. Then they know what to put on their page code instead of trying to wade through the source code of the page it's on.

Well... What I've been doing, is clicking on the picture I'd like to add to my page (animated logo, animated ship, whatever) and it takes me to that graphic's "home page". The graphic's home page has the name of the link as 1st line at the top of the page (Just as "Talk: Computer Operations" is the link to this page) (ie: click on the animated Nebula and it takes you to the page entitled... "Image:Ani-nebula.gif"), which is what you would put in the brackets to add that graphic to your page. It's actually simpler to actually do it, than it is to explain it. Rob-J, IC

If people don't want tp click on the file and go to it's "File Page", they have several other options... They can always do a "Search" from the Main Page for gif files called enterprise, or they can use two "Special" pages. The 1st one is "File List", where they can sort by date of upload, File Size, or Alphabetically. The 2nd Special page is "Gallery of New Files", where it shows a thumbnail picture with its filename below it (like you want).

Wiki has multiple ways to skin multiple cats simultaniously. It's a Very powerfull tool in itself... BUT... people need to take the initiative to look around and explore, since it would take MONTHS to make a suitable MFI-Wiki Users Guide. Rob-J, IC
