Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template shows a set of images in an array. The number of images per row is based upon the width specified and the width of the screen, which allows greater flexibility than the <gallery>...</gallery> tag.


For each image

Specify a line of the following form for each image.

|File:Filename|altN=Alt text|Caption
  • Filename is the image's file name. It can use a File: instead of an Image: prefix.
  • N should be 1 for the first image, 2 for the second image, and so forth.
  • Alt text is the alt text for the image, used by visually impaired and other readers who cannot see the image. If omitted, the image's alt text is blank.
  • Caption is the caption.

If no such lines are present, a gallery with a single question-mark image is produced. There is currently a limit of 100 such lines.
