Hi _CG_ And Welcome To The Wiki! With This Welcome, I'll Leave All Your Screenshots On WTLive Depending On You If You Want To Upload Them Or Not. With That Said, 3 Tips That Might Help You On The Wiki

  1. ArtImage_(vehicle_page_name).jpg/png | Are Usually Reserved To Be Shown Next To Their Stat Card Image On Vehicle Pages - So Best To Only Have A Single ArtImage Per Vehicle.
  2. If You Wanted To Upload Any Non-main Images To Just Throw Around In The Media Section Of A Vehicle Or As Filler On The Page, Just Name It Something According To The Image / Vehicle - Doesn't Have To Follow A Certain Pattern. For Example: Chi-Ha Short Gun.
  3. Also Be Sure To Include The Catagory To Images By Adding (Primarily For Your Case): [[Category:In-game screenshots]]

For Any Other Questions Or Help With The Wiki, Please Don't Hesitate And Ask Away - And Hope To See More Of Your Quality Screenshots o7

Adding New Images

Hi _CG_, I'll Drop By Your Page So You'll Find My Response Easier And Once You Need It Again, It'll Just Be Here.

Adding To Vehicle Card

So I Took A Gander At The Image You Wanted To Add And The Page Hasn't Been Updated Yet To The Informal Way Of Having A Display Image, So You'll Have To Add It Yourself, Of Which There's 2 Ways.

1. Edit:

When Clicking Edit In The Top Right Of A Wiki Page, All Templates Will Size Down To Specs:XXX Blocks - When Editing Through This Way You Should Double Click The First Block You'd See "Specs-Card" - In The Second Row You'll Find The Directed Images. To Add Your Image You Should Add:

2. Edit Source:

Essentially The Same As When You're In Edit - But This Time You Won't Have To Click Any Blocks And The Line You Have To Edit Shall Be There.

Adding On Vehicle Page

For Adding An Image Separate Of The Specs-Card Again, For Edit & Edit Source It's Different

1. Edit:

When Editing A Page, There Should Be An Easy Button "Insert" => "Media" Which Allows You To Look-Up Your Image By File Name And Just Insert On Cursor.

2. Edit Source:

When In Edit Source, Just Add [[File:IMAGENAME.png/jpg]] Which Can Further Be Expanded And Edited With Size And What Not, I'll Leave An Easier Explanation On That Here.

Thank you so much for teaching me how to use War Thunder WIKI, Shimakaze. it wasn't easy but now I'm finally uploading my screenshots to WIKI and I hope they're being useful to this website!

I've been trying to use this code to upload my screenshots: |ArtImage_{{PAGENAME}}.png I've tried everything to Make it work, replacing the areas that I thought it should be, example: |ArtImage_Tank_A{{Tank_Name_Page}}.png but the only code that worked was this one: "|ArtImage_.png" to |ArtImage__Pz.38(t)_F.png.

I hope I'm not causing trouble. Best regards. o7

To make it clearer, let's say you want to add the artistic image for the vehicle "Pz.38(t) F".
  1. You upload the file "ArtImage_Pz.38(t)_F.png"
  2. You add |ArtImage_{{PAGENAME}}.png in the header on the vehicle page for the Pz.38(t) F (and not |ArtImage__Pz.38(t)_F.png, the template {{PAGENAME}} fills automatically the name of the page in the link, creating the link to said vehicle.
  3. The only exceptions are vehicles names with the symbol "/" since it can't be used to name a file.

Image size

Hello Colok76286! Thanks for the help, I'm slowly improving my skills and I'm enjoying to edit the War Thunder Wiki. I have another question: how is the standard page configuration? I've noticed the main pictures, that I've edited, got resized from 600px, 550px and recently to x280px from another user, I don't want make you guys have unnecessary work. --Caff_ (talk) 10:06, 9 February 2022 (UTC)

Hello, please use x280px for the pictures (do not go back and edit previous pages if they don't have the correct size). Also, please do not change the text between brackets: <!-- ''text'' -->. The only thing you can do is comment (hide) the text by adding the brackets: <!-- --> before and after. --Colok76286 (talk) 14:00, 9 February 2022 (UTC)

Deleting wrong screenshots

Hello again! How do I delete screenshots that I wrongly uploaded? is there a way to delete them individually or do I have to erase the file page? if there's a way, how do I do?

>The page target:,8_cm_Flak_37_Sfl..png

I only want to keep the screenshot: "13:59, 21 February 2022 / 1,920 × 1,080 (4.12 MB) / Sharper update"

I can't change to the 13:59 version because there's another screenshot with the same size "4.12 MB"

Thanks for the support as always!

Hi, only administrators can delete pages and files/images outright. You can upload a new image under the same name by using the "Upload a new version of this file" link on the file page. This functionality should work regardless of whether the new image has the same size as the previous (or even if it's exactly the same image). Regarding this specific case, the last two images ('Sharper update' and 'Correct "sharper update" screenshot, the last one was a wrong upload') you have uploaded look identical. It may be that your browser has the image cached so you aren't being shown the updated version: hard refresh the file page (ctrl+shift+r or shift+click the reload button on most browsers) and see if that fixes the issue. - DnaGonite (talk) 18:04, 21 February 2022 (UTC)
