Template:Image gallery/doc

From Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository
Jump to: navigation, search

This template shows up to 30 images in an array. The number of images per row is based upon the size specified and the width of the screen, which allows greater flexibility than the <gallery> tag.

For policy about where galleries are appropriate, see en:WP:IG.

This template is similar to {{Gallery}}, except it does not require a "File:" or "Image:" prefix for image names, and alt text is passed in the second unnamed parameter instead of in a named "altN=" parameter, whereas {{Gallery}} requires both to be prefixed. Both templates use {{Gallery/aux}} to format individual images.

Parameters[edit]

Required[edit]

|Image|Alt text|Caption
Specify one of these lines for each image. Image is the image name (without any File: or Image: prefix). Alt is the alt text, used by visually impaired readers; it typically has little in common with the caption (see en:WP:ALT). Caption is the caption; see en:WP:CAPTION. If no such lines are present, a gallery with a single question-mark image is produced. There is currently a limit of 30 such lines.

Optional[edit]

title
The gallery's title.
width
(default 180) Maximum width of each image.
height
(default 180) Maximum height of each image.
lines
(default 2) The number of text lines needed for the largest caption. Blank lines are appended to smaller captions. A caption that does not fit is cut off.
