See also: Help


WikiDanceSport allows you to upload images and other files which you can reference in your pages, or in the case of images, show on the page.

Upload files

To upload files, navigate to the "Manage Files" link in the menu. This will allow you to create folders and upload files to the repository.


  • From the top menu click on Manage Files link.
  • You can create a new folder for your file by clicking New Folder button
  • Select Upload Files button and click on it
  • Browse to your files location. You can select multiple files to upload. You can also drag and drop files to the destination

Adding an image to the page

You can reference existing images by clicking on the image button, finding the image you want to show on the page and clicking the bottom right "select" button. This will display a small preview of the image first.

When you add an image, the markup will automatically be added to the editor text box for your page. You will probably need to tweak this for your needs, for details on the markup see the help for each markup type via the question mark button


  • Select where you want to implement your photo.
  • From the text editor toolbar click photo icon.
  • Choose photo to be displayed on the page
  • Selected photo will be placed to your text editor

Example of the photo script Here is an example of the image script that will be placed to your page:

{{/Some Folder/IMG.JPG|Image title}}

Replace Image title with the title you want. For example: Mr. Smith at Poconos, 2015, or remove it and leave empty.

Linking to uploaded files

You can link to uploaded files by using "/" followed by the full path to the file inside the link tag. This should include a slash at the start.

For example

This is my Excel file: [[~//Spreadsheets/Sheet1.xls|excel file]] 
And this is my Word document: [[~/Word/doc.docx|Word document]]

Attachments folder

Files are uploaded to the folder ~/Attachments/.

How it works

WikiDanceSport has been created for the DanceSport community to collaboratively organize and promote this sport throughout the world. Anyone who can access this site can edit most of its articles and create new ones.

Only registered users may create a new article. Some particularly controversial, sensitive and/or vandalism-prone pages are protected to some degree from public alteration. A particularly contentious article may be locked so that only administrators are able to make changes.

In certain cases, all editors are allowed to submit modifications, but review is required for some editors, depending on certain conditions.
