This is to help people who are not very familiar with editing on Mediawiki and is also a guide to help me remember certain things that are useful when editing.

Redirecting[edit]

Sometimes you will need to redirect, for instance we have an article called Custom Firmware(CFW) which is the main article, but we also had CFW, so we added the redirect in CFW, to make it point to Custom Firmware(CFW), if you click on either link, they should direct to the same place.

Never redirect an article which contains information, only redirect an article that is completely blank.

#REDIRECT [[pagename]]  <--- The command, where it says pagename, enter the name of the page that you want to be redirected to, for instance, i went into the blank page CFW and entered
#REDIRECT [[CFW]], saved it then that was it set up, you can find more info here


Images[edit]

To post images, you must use Imgur.
Configuration parameters

<imgur>xSO1ufX.jpg</imgur>

<imgur w="200">xSO1ufX.jpg</imgur>

<imgur thumb="yes" w="250" comment="This is a chicken in class.">xSO1ufX.jpg</imgur>

Images can be thumbnailed and size controlled by using w attribute for width and setting the thumb attribute to yes and entering text into the comment attribute. The thumbnailed version is wrapped in a div .imgur-thumb tag and class for skin based and wiki wide CSS changes.


Embedding Video[edit]

Sometimes videos are a great way of showing something.

<embedvideo> - Tag Hook[edit]

Videos can easily be embedded with the <embedvideo></embedvideo> tag hook. The ID/URL goes as the input between the tags and parameters can be added as the tag arguments.

<embedvideo service="youtube">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSsYTj9kCHE</embedvideo>

Alternativly, you can also use the service id as the tag (assuming another extension isn't already using this tag).

<youtube>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSsYTj9kCHE</youtube>

As of version 2.x, EmbedVideo supports embedding video content from the following services:
