Template documentation[edit] [history] [purge]

This template creates a box with two to ten images arranged vertically or horizontally with captions for the entire box and/or for each images.

Usage

  • align defaults to "right"
  • direction defaults to "horizontal"
  • header_align defaults to "center"
  • footer_align defaults to "left"
  • image1 is name of first image. Similarly for image2, etc.
  • width1 is width of first image. Similarly for width2, etc.
    • width overrides width1, width2, width3, etc. If you want the images to be different sizes, do not provide the width parameter.
  • alt1 is alternate text of first image. Similarly for alt2, etc.
  • caption1 is caption of first image. Similarly for caption2, etc.
  • link1 is where the first page links to. Similarly for link2, etc. If not specified, image links to the image description page as usual. If specified to the empty value, the image does not link anywhere; this should be used for purely decorative images.
    Important: If the image is under a free license like the GFDL or a CC license, you must not use this parameter as the terms of those licenses require the license, or a link to it, to be reproduced with the image. The image must, therefore, link to its image page. Public domain and (theoretically) fair use images are not subject to this restriction.
  • background color defines the background color between the border of the box and the images.
  • header, footer, background color and captions are optional.

Red cartouche
Players are cautioned with a yellow card and sent off with a red card.

Example with background color

Green herb with a few tiny yellow-white flowers
Three small white and yellow flowers before green-leaf background
Leaves of a plant. They are in groups of three, each with three lobes.
Adoxa (Adoxa moschatellina)
{{multiple image
| image1=Adoxa_moschatellina_210406.jpg
| alt1=Green herb with a few tiny yellow-white flowers

| image2=Adoxa_moschatellina_210406a.jpg
| alt2=Three small white and yellow flowers before green-leaf background

| image3=adoxa_moschatellina_blatt.jpeg
| alt3=Leaves of a plant. They are in groups of three, each with three lobes.

| footer=Adoxa (''Adoxa moschatellina'')
| footer_background=#BBDD99
| background color=#BBDD99

Example with links

A mule
A mule
骡子, luózi
A donkey
A donkey
驴子, lǘzi
A trout
A fish
,
The mule links to Mule, the donkey does not link anywhere, and the trout links to its image description page as usual.
{{multiple image
| footer    = The mule links to ''Mule'', the donkey does not link anywhere, and the trout links to its image description page as usual.

| image1    = Frecklesmule.jpg
| width1    = 143
| alt1      = A mule
| caption1  = <center>A mule<br />骡子, ''luózi''</center>

Horizontal placement: matching image heights

This trick is not required if both images have the same aspect ratio, where |width= suffices
  • Decide on a common height for the images, say 100 pixels.
  • Examine the individual image pages to obtain the full resolution. For example:
  • For non-square images, use these figures to construct an expression for the |widthn= parameters, of the form:
    • {{#expr: (dh * ow / oh) round 0}}
  • where
    • dh is the desired height in pixels (100)
    • ow is the original width in pixels (750 or 300)
    • oh is the original height in pixels (536 or 300)
  • For square images, simply set the appropriate |widthn= to be the desired height. If all are square, only |width= needs to be set.
A donkey
A donkey, not square and originally 536 pixels high
A trout
A fish, square and originally 300 pixels high
The two images are both rendered 100 pixels high
{{multiple image
| footer    = The two images are both rendered 100 pixels high
| align     = right

| image1    = Donkey 1 arp 750px.jpg
| width1    = {{#expr: (100 * 750 / 536) round 0}}
| alt1      = A donkey
| caption1  = A donkey, not square and originally 536 pixels high

| image2    = Rainbow_trout.png
| width2    = 100
| alt2      = A trout
| caption2  = A fish, square and originally 300 pixels high
