Insert JPG or PDF's into Wiki
Can you insert a JPG or PDF's into your game Wiki for maps? Or just need to link to an outside link?

You can post them, but they don't work well on a mobile platform. I would use a thumbnail as the hyperlink and have the full-size image open in a separate window.

No, you use this for thumbnails: <A href="Big Image URL"><img src="THUMB NAIL URL"></a>

And this for just showing the images: <img src="IMG URL">

And this for linking to an image to open in another browser <a href="IMG URL">Click to see image.</a>

Okay so the image needs to be hosted somewhere. That's what I was wondering.

Yes, sorry. The wiki uses the same base code as RPOL, plus some wiki code. So you can't host it on the wiki.

Is there a way to change the image size while linking to the image?  Like a width or height?

Sadly no, at least not according to the documentation.

RPoL faqs (rubbcode)

RPoL FAQ:
The image tag will also accept the alignment attribute to move an image to the left or right side of the post (the code would look like this: <img src="http://beta.rpol.net/images/banner-light-beta.gif" align="right">).  Note that vertical alignment options are not possible in RuBB code at this time, nor are other HTML image attributes available.



And now some lorem ipsum so that the site will let me make a short post with a large quote in it.  (Seriously, why does it do that?)

It's to stop people quoting long chunks of text, just to add a short comment.  Like for instance, when the quote feature was first added to the forums we used to have people quote an entire multi-paragraph post, just to add, "Agreed!" or "OK." or the like.

Then the next post would be a quote of that (including the entire multiple paragraphs quote and the one word comment) but with "Yes." added.

Asking people to quote within reason didn't seem to work, so jase coded a way to enforce it.
