As of version 1.4, MediaWiki supports making image galleries. This is an easy way of displaying a large number of images.
The basic syntax of an image gallery is:
<gallery> Image:Wiki.png Image:Wiki.png|Caption Image:Wiki.png Image:Wiki.png|[[Law and Order:About|Links]] can be put in captions. Image:Wiki.png Image:Wiki.png|Full [[Help:Wiki markup|MediaWiki markup]]<br/>syntax may be used… </gallery>
Notice that there are no brackets except for links within captions. Captions are optional. Images are separated by new lines.
As of newer MediaWiki versions it is now possible to alter the thumbnail's maximum height and width as well as how many images per row.
