    graphic in Wiki

    Can we include graphic screenshots when writing PETs? Does WiKi allow that?

    Most excellent question.

    If it doesnt exist yet, can we add support for it?

    For external images, it's simply a matter of providing the URL to the image.

    For arrangemetn of the images, I think you need to do wiki table magic

    No, not external image links.

    Currently what wiki will do is written pages in texts only. Sometimes, it's hard to express something but easier to show with screenshots (an image is worth a thousand words?). That's what I was wondering.

    But then again I don't think Peter is willing to host graphic files since he is most worried about overloading link and those dial up users who uses slower links. Oh well, I guess those can be hosted elsewhere and point a link from WiKi.

    Wiki can do the locally hosted image too, but as you said, it takes disk space and bandwidth for slower connections.

    I'd consider it. Images can be an essential part of a tutorial.

    Mediawiki images are stored as part of the file system, not in the DB. So there shouldn't be a significant performance hit on the co-hosted forum DB.

    What image size do you think would be a good maximum? 100K for a 256 color GIF screen shot?

    You can set whatever is best for now. If we need larger size, then we can talk about that later. I think a good use of images can be very constructive.

    Wiki image uploads up to 50K have been enabled. In some cases it may not be enough for an entire screen shot, but should be OK for showing a set of menus.

    Here is a mediawiki tutorial on image usage.

    Comments welcome.
