Re: (Noob) img tag not seeming to work for me

notice that you can also use just the url to your file http://doc.tikiwiki.org/tiki-download_file.php?fileId=21 as shown from the file gallery where you uploaded your image:

(in tiki3, it's recommended to use file galleries for images also, and disabling "image galleries" to avoid duplication of feature and to avoid confusion of users). That's how it is configured doc.tw.o, btw, and many other tiki 3.0 sites.

There, when you click on "add another image", the popup window that shows up is the file manager, allowing you to upload one or many files (images, in that case, but they could be any file, in fact). and once uploaded, you can just get hte link to your uploaded file in the server, like http://doc.tikiwiki.org/tiki-download_file.php?fileId=21 or http://doc.tikiwiki.org/dl21 in your case, and use it as usual with the {img src=http://domain.org/foo.jpg } tag.

Can you help to update documentation for this, mizraith, please, indicating clearly that this is the behavior in most tiki 3 sites where they set up file galleries to hold images?

to document version-specific info, we use to add content within the PluginVersions.
See Manual Installation for a real example of usage, if needed.

And thanks again for helping to update the docs .
