h2. Usage

h3. Inline Images

Attached files can be shown within the parent page by targeting it's name via image url (i.e. @!attached_image!@).

h3. Non plain text files

Keep in mind there is a [[RedmineDocuments]] module for storing technical and user documentation that can be linked via the wiki.

However, if that doesn't fit the bill, file upload support provides a way to distribute any file for user download.

File storage

All uploaded files are stored at the @/{install dir}/files@ directory.

The uploaded file name is prefixed with a unique id based on it's parent for directory storage. Multiple files can be uploaded with the same name, however a link within the wiki will only show the most recently uploaded one.

h2. New file Attach files form

If Regardless where a new file is added, the input form is as shown below. Adding multiple files at once is possible using the "Add another file" link.

The optional description is used for an @alt@ text. text if the image is shown using @!image_url!@ within the parent.

h2. Files added via "New File"

At the bottom of many of the pages in Redmine is a "New File" link. Attaching a file makes that page the parent of the file and it is limited in scope to that page.
