Check usage and version matrix.

This Full Local Image extension was under development for WikiIndex to allow the url of a local image to be inserted into a page in the same way {{fullurl:Articlename}} and {{localurl:Articlename}} are used. The main purpose for this is embedding local images into a page using the external embedding method so that the image can be used as a link.

Note: This extension is targeted currently for the MediaWiki 1.6.5 versions.

Parser functions[edit]

This extension adds two parser functions that can be used.

{{fullimage:Imagename.ext}} {{localimage:Imagename.ext}}

Fullimage adds the full url to the image to the page, and Localimage adds the url to the page without the http://www.yoursite.com on it.


To install add the following files to your wiki and use this in your LocalSettings.php to install it:

require_once( "extensions/FullLocalImage.php" );


 * @Extension Full/Local Image
 * @Author Daniel Friesen (aka: Dantman )
 * @Description Creates 2 parserfunctions. Localimage and Fullimage, they work similar
 *      to the Localurl and Fullurl functions except they return the path to a image not a article.
