OK hello, so you want to know why you can't seem to manage to get your photo/banners/pictures on your wiki page or in your house description? This page will tell you how to do it, just follow the steps below!
How to Upload an Image
You can either upload it to an image hosting website, or to Elftown.
To upload a new image, it has to be on your computer.
To Upload your image to your Elftown house
A. Go to and click on 'Upload a new (or delete current) photo' or 'Upload a new (or delete current) drawing'.
B. Click 'Browse' to find the image on your computer, select the image and click OK.
C. You can now add a description underneath, that will be displayed underneath the image on your house.
Note: If you want to stop displaying an image in your photo- or drawingslot, go back to the upload screen and click without having selected an image. This will make that image slot on your house blank again.
If you want to display an image that you already uploaded before, click on below that image.
How to put the image in my description/wiki/etc
A. Right click on the uploaded image.
B. Go to properties (Or "View Image Info")- this will display the URL <IMG:(URL to the image)>
C. Copy it.
D. Paste it where you want it to appear.
Uploading to a Wiki-Page
It is also possible to upload images directly to a wiki page, but to be able to do this you need to get priv 99. Members can get this new Priv setting by requesting them in the comments on Guards. They will evaluate you based on your past account history, those who have broken the UAR several times may be refused.
Once you get Priv 99 on each wiki page you will see a new 'upload feature' at the bottom of each page. Here you can browse your computer for an image, select it, then upload it.
See wikiprivs for instructions.
You must remember to name the file and add its extension, so if you are uploading a .gif file and want to call it 'friendly cat', name it friendlycat.gif then click upload.
Always make sure you follow the Uploading Art Rules.
