From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Want to create a banner like the one above? We'd love to see it!

Here are the requirements:

  • must be cropped or croppable to 1800px length by 450px width
  • should be high-quality and showcase a unique or beautiful aspect of the destination

How to create a banner

If your photo meets all the requirements, the next step is to upload.

It’s simple!

1. Upload the properly cropped banner to Wikitravel Shared and make sure to name it using the destination name followed by "Banner.jpg"
ex: Paris Banner.jpg
2. Copy the file name and go to the article that you want to upload your banner to. Hit "edit" and insert the following template at the very top of the edit box:
{{pagetemplate|filename.jpg}}
For example, the pagebanner for the Paris article would be:
{{pagebanner|Paris Banner.jpg}}
3. Remember to preview the page to make sure the banner is displaying properly and then hit save. Done!

Updating an existing banner

If you'd like to update an article's banner with a new image, please post on that article's talk page. Make sure the community and admin team are in agreement that the new image should be featured.
