Upload it to a imaging hosting site such as Imgur.com and then copy the URL and paste it as such:

Code: Select all

Is there a code already built out there for articles based on military equipment? For instance it is like a table with the image of the equipment on the left and then several cells of information following. Example as such in these wikipedia article:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equipment ... med_Forces

I don't think there's one pre-made, but, I'm a nice guy...

Code: Select all
[table][tr][td][align=center][b]Image[/b][/align][/td][td][align=center][b]Name[/b][/align][/td][td][align=center][b]Origin[/b][/align][/td][td][align=center][b]Type[/b][/align][/td][td][align=center][b]Variant[/b][/align][/td][td][align=center][b]In Service[/b][/align][/td][td][align=center][b]Entered Service[/b][/align][/td][td][align=center][b]Notes[/b][/align][/td][/tr]
[tr][td][align=center][img]https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/ad/Medium_Battletank_M48_A2C.jpg/300px-Medium_Battletank_M48_A2C.jpg[/img][/align][/td][td][align=center]Name[/align][/td][td][align=center]Nation of Origin[/align][/td][td][align=center]Type[/align][/td][td][align=center]Variant[/align][/td][td][align=center]# IN service[/align][/td][td][align=center]Year entered service[/align][/td][td][align=center]Any notes[/align][/td][/tr][/table]


You'll definitely want to upload your own pre-sized images that way the table doesn't end up all wonky. Just copy/paste the second set of [tr]'s for each row of stuff you have.

No problem! Only took me about 5 or 10 minutes, not a big deal. Tables can be confusing but once you get the hang of them they're pretty simple!

I keep having a problem with my Factbook. Why does the the point were it says Government and the table of contents box not work? It just says [anchor=Govt]Government despite ever other one working on the page and the actual code stuff at the spot seems to be right?
Code: Select all
[b][u][size=150][anchor=Govt]Government[/anchor][/b][/u][/size]
I'm quite stuck with what I need to do to fix this issue.

Yes, but it doesn't for me.

Check to make sure an [anchor] tag hasn't ended up somewhere its not supposed to be. That's usually the cause for the code showing up as plain text.
