How to size a photo to a specific size?

For a Photo Album photo

http://datsun1200.com/uploads/4010.jpg

Photos are automatically maxed at 400 pixels wide:
4010.jpg

Limit the width to 400 for this Wiki so that all users get a nice size page, even if using a mobile browser.

Use Thumbs in some case, like this:

http://datsun1200.com/uploads/thumbs/4010.jpg

Category Pages

A category page is a table-of-contents page.

Generally you won't change these, instead add your information to a regular page or a new page (see how to create a new page below). However if needed you can modify the Category page to add subcategories.

Adding the "category" to a page will cause that page to automatically be listed on the category page.

Adding a Category to a page

Say you write a page "L-series Engine Swaps". Be sure to add the category to the bottom of the page:

[[Category:Engine Removal And Installation]]

This will list the page on the appropriate category page automatically and also provides a link near the top of the page to the category page. Now they are cross-linked and indexed.

Where Can I see a list of Categories?

The list of top-level Categories is here: Datsun 1200 encyclopedia.

New Pages

NOTE: Be sure to use the search button to see if your info already is in the encyclopedia somewhere. It is usually better to add your information to an existing article than to create new page/article.

How Do I Create a New Page?

In existing articles, you may see a "red link". This is a link to an article that hasn't been created yet. Click it and you will be prompted to create the new page. Type in the info you have, then click Save. You may wish to Preview it first.

To create a brand new page, see instructions here: Create New Page

Tables

Option 1: Paste an HTML table in. It is displayed as normal.

Option 2: Use a wiki table.

HTML Tables

Use this option if you are good with HTML or can copy/paste an existing table.

OPTIONAL: Give the table the class "wiki_table" to give it a quick formatted look. Overide the width with [style="width:600px"]. TH can be used to make the first row pop
