Hello! So I have a question, say I want to display an image on my user page, without having to upload that particular image. I would use its web link to display it on my page, but how would I go about resiziong that image? Is this possible?
For example, say I want to link the following image onto my user page, how can I resize the image by editing the web link and without uploading it to the wiki?
Just need to use the "/scale-to-width-down/" in the url if using from another Fandom project:
Example output if you want the image to be 300px:
Would give this:
Hello Timeshade, I’m currently seeing many users freak out over Fandom’s recent announcement about wiki updates. One of the rumors I’m hearing is that when wikis switch to the new server or whatever, none of the images will migrate. Is this true? If so, what will Fandom be doing to ensure all of the images migrate?
Thank you, that is a huge relief. A friend of mine shared a screenshot of a comment on one of the blog posts about the UCP and that user commented that “pictures probably won’t migrate over”. Wasn’t sure if this was a Fandom official or a standard user who made that comment but this was alarming and I wanted to reach out ASAP for clarification. Thank you!!
I was doing my usual tour around the wiki activity when I noticed something strange: this Category:Templates seems to be for templates only, but it is full of character pages and this category also appear on their pages among the others, when it wasn't there in the beginning. Do you have some way to know what happened, and if there is a way to remove 'em all quickly or somewhat?
I don't know if I was clear enough, really, let me know if I can be useful.
Hello, this is unrelated to TWD but I have a question regarding galleries on another wiki (since you are a FANDOM staff member, right?). I am trying to create a gallery similar to my set up I have on the wiki (for an example, see Template:Survivors S3).
When I copy and paste this code at The Society wiki, the gallery appears as GIANT squares, which I do not. I am looking to make a gallery similar to the ones I have here.
as I said in the other topic - and thanks for the timely response - I have some proposals to make and to verify the possibility of implementing them: 1 - is there any possibility to insert a massive delete, for admins, for pages that are categorized for deletion? Often we find ourselves with many pages or redirects to delete, and removing them one by one can be a long process; 2 - it is possible to insert a function, always for the admin, to be able to send a message that would appear in the notifications (or in the inbox) in case of negative behavior such as continuous flame or vandalizing by a specific user? So you can immediately notify the user of the warning, before proceeding to a ban if the user should continue with his bad attitude. Maybe, by blocking them from editing for at least 15 minutes and to make them aware of the warning.
These are two things that I'm thinking about from a while, but I'll probably come out with other stuffs soon or later. Let me know if I was clear enough!
Thank you anyway for your support. Have a good one!
2. It happened sometimes that the user didn't even read the message on the wall and proceeds, sometimes later, to do the same thing for which he was given a warning. It was a proposal to "force" the user to read the message, and to don't force me to ban him instantly. I can live without it, it was a simple proposal to "modernize" the wiki. :P
It's an unfortunate but there will be users who just don't listen, even after their block expires. Really there's no specific function I can implement myself. Though if it's a case of vandalizing, then it's really hard to get through to them regardless as they do it on purpose after all.
Hi there! Is there any chance you could look into our Discord widget? I saw you noticed we didn't have an invite link attached a few weeks back, I didn't know if that was a glitch or something. If you could maybe find a way to put an invite link for the community, that would be awesome! Thank you!
