Image Box

By Timothy FosterTimothy Foster


Check out the Bootstrap Image Box, the new and improved version of this snippet!

One of the common desires of the typical Wikidot user is to easily add a caption or heading to an image. Furthermore, some users would like to easily fancify their image. However, the only way to truly do this is to make a grueling table every time. This CSI allows for a very simple and easy method to insert images, add captions to them, apply headings to them, apply a float, and adjust width.


[[include :snippets:image

If you do not fill out a certain field, then a default will be applied. Therefore, it is not necessary to have all of these fields. Note that when you fill out the fields, you do NOT use quotes.

|image is the link to the image, or the image's full URL. For example,

|width sets the width of the image. The default is 195 pixels.

|float sets the float of the image. By default, the image will center. Applicable values are right or left.

|heading sets a bold title above the image.

|caption gives the image a caption.

|link controls the window location whenever the image is clicked. By default, the link is the image's URL. If you define the link as @@, then the image will not be linked.

|alt allows you to define alternate text, in case the image becomes unavailable.

|title sets the title of the image, which is the mini text that pops up when you hover over the image

In action

Image Unavailable
This is a test.

[[include :snippets:image
|caption=This is a test.

CSS Styling

You can modify the looks of the include via CSS. This way, you can customize the looks of the image box to match your site.

The CSI uses the following classes:

Class Modifies
.image-box The overall box of the CSI.
.image-box-heading This modifies the heading area above the picture.
.image-box-image This modifies the image area where the picture actually is.
.image-box-caption This modifies the caption area below the picture.

This page shows the CSI with custom styling.

The captions automatically come with a smaller font setting and italic styling. You can omit those by adding the following variable to your code:
