Help:Galleries, Slideshows, and Sliders

Galleries, Slideshows, and Sliders are simple tools to display your community's interesting photos and videos. However, Slideshows and Sliders are not recommended for the best user experience. Use them at your own risk.

Brief descriptions

Gallery

A gallery presents static pictures and videos in grids. You have a lot of flexibility in determining the specifics of that grid and can even offer your readers the opportunity to add an image directly to the gallery. Please note that any given gallery should not contain more than 500 images, and ideally, far fewer than that.

Slider

A slider pans one image over another in a slow, timed fashion. It gives an animated way to introduce the four most important areas of your wiki. Readers can control the direction of the slider with the arrows on the sides—and they can jump to whatever page is linked to each image.

Slideshow

A slideshow is similar to a slider, but it can contain many more pictures. Unlike a slider, it gives no opportunity to present captions, so slideshows usually work better in situations where your images are iconic and therefore instantly recognized by your readers.
