Uploading a picture in the quickbar[edit]

Hello. I assume it should be simple - what should i do in order to make this picture in the quickbar of this article visible? By now, i imagine it should be displayed automatically. --Local (talk) 14:28, 24 November 2014 (EST)

Hello, Local! I believe IBAlex is on a vacation this week, so I thought I'd jump in. Everything you did was correct except the filename you pasted had the underscores "_" between each word. I think this is what caused it to display incorrectly. Check out your image and quickbar edit now! IBcaldera (talk) 14:50, 24 November 2014 (EST)
Actually it should still display even without the underscores. The reason I changed the file name was to force a flush of the server's cache so that Local could see the image displayed.
I believe that CheeseCrisps is using the same kind of tricks to solve the same kind of irritation... --Ttcf (talk) 14:57, 24 November 2014 (EST)
Ttcf you're a genius! I was somewhat unsure about the underscores too, hence "I think this is what caused.." but guess I was wrong! Thanks for the heads up =) IBcaldera (talk) 15:04, 24 November 2014 (EST)
Aha, it's OK now, thanks. And thanks for correcting those other inaccuracies. --Local (talk) 15:14, 24 November 2014 (EST)
My pleasure - I could fix some other things but now a lot of the templates have been locked down so only someone with admin rights can edit them. Koavf has fixed some of them for me but I can't be e-mailing him all the time... --Ttcf (talk) 16:49, 24 November 2014 (EST)
As for "other things" i'd be glad if anyone who is fluent in English could edit this article, i mean language, especially the parts written by me :).
As for the picture... to be honest that picture was uploaded by me a year ago. And today i have noticed that it has gone. There was a warning "stop uploading...blah-blah-blah". I was 100% sure that i have uploaded it to WT Shared and then to LT article. But after a careful inspection, indeed, i didn't find it among other pictures. So i uploaded it again with the same name, but it didn't display. So you fixed everything, that's good. I'm guessing how could i upload it previously if i didn't upload it to WT shared first? How could i link it? Now i checked my uploads at WT Shared and was a bit shocked - it have gone again :). I assume, it is among IBcaldera's uploads now. Then what happened with the first upload, i think i even "technically" could not upload it to the article not linking the picture to some source, especially because i know the rules. So, it's not relevant now, but i won't sleep still guessing what's happened to the first image :) --Local (talk) 17:25, 24 November 2014 (EST)
